Annotations: Annotations are straightforward reports of research. They are primarily analytic writings. By writing these annotations you will learn to read journal articles, extract important information from those articles, and communicate the essence of the study to others. Take these 3 empirical articles and make annotations for them.
a. Each annotation should begin on a new page and is between 1-2 pages.
b. Annotations are presented in alphabetical order by the first author?s last name.
c. Each annotation should include the following sections: Research question/Hypotheses Participants Procedures Identification of key variables (e.g., IV, predictor, DV, criterion variable) Results Weaknesses/Limitations Conclusions
d. If your article contains more than 1 study, then be sure to report each study.
Tip 2: Do NOT simply highlight portions of your articles while reading. It is a good idea to take notes on the article while you are reading. Remember you CANT-paraphrase instead. This should help reduce the chances of „accidental? plagiarism.
i. It is a good idea to take notes as if you are explaining things to a friend or family member.
