Annotated Bibliography Writing Assignment:
Search for evidence about a practice issue that relates to your future profession. In other words, if you are studying nutrition, for example, you might look for evidence about food labelling, or pre-hospital care interventions if studying paramedics. Your tutor can guide you further in what topic might be suitable for your chosen program of study. If you are planning to apply for another course in the future, you may wish to search for evidence about an issue in that area of study and not the BHS major you are currently studying. Also, discuss this with your tutor so that you don’t waste time looking for irrelevant research.
Search for and select three (3) current peer-reviewed journal articles of research on a topic that relates to your future profession (2012 onwards). The articles need to be from 3 different journals. The author group(s) of these 3 articles also need to be different. All 3 articles will relate to the one topic of your choice. From the example of food labelling, all 3 articles will be about some aspect of food labelling from different authors’ studies that have been published in different peer-reviewed journals. The pre-hospital care interventions example for paramedics might all relate to treating a client with seizure. All 3 articles will be about this one condition.
The articles are to come from 3 different peer-reviewed journals to demonstrate that you can locate a range of material from a variety of quality sources.
