Annotated Bibliography and Literature Review

An Annotated Bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.

A Literature Review describes academic papers which are relevant to a particular field or topic. It provides an overview of the main theories and hypothesis, appropriate methods and methodologies, what questions are being asked, the key findings, and who the key writers are.
