In the sample annotation below, each element is numbered (see Key).

(1) Trevor, C.O., Lansford, B. and Black, J.W., 2004, ‘Employee turnover and job performance: monitoring the influences of salary growth and promotion’, Journal of Armchair Psychology, vol 113, no.1, pp. 56-64.

(2) In this article Trevor et al. review the influences of pay and job opportunities in respect to job performance, turnover rates and employee motivation.(3) The authors use data gained through organisational surveys of blue-chip companies in Vancouver, Canada to try to identify the main causes of employee turnover and whether it is linked to salary growth.(4) Their research focuses on assessing a range of pay structures such as pay for performance and organisational reward schemes.(5) The article is useful to my research topic, as Trevor et al. suggest that there are numerous reasons for employee turnover and variances in employee motivation and performance.(6) The main limitation of the article is that the survey sample was restricted to mid-level management,(7) thus the authors indicate that further, more extensive, research needs to be undertaken to develop a more in-depth understanding of employee turnover and job performance.(8) This article will not form the basis of my research; however it will be useful supplementary information for my research on pay structures.

...Nicolas Romero THEO201 B29 Short Essay # 1 Short Essay on Bibliography Bibliology from the Greek word βιβλιογραφία, bibliographia, is book writing. On its own it simply means the study of the bible. With it come the ideas of inspirations and inerrancy. The Bible is both and can be seen in its content. Being a once three time born-again Catholic, did all the steps while living with my parents, I can relate to having to be confident that what the bible says is true to its nature. The authority of the Bible comes from the Bible itself. We must begin with the beginning. Like it says in the Bible the beginning of all is with God. So with this we must begin with God himself. This is evident in Exodus 4:22 (New American Standard Bible), ‘…Thus says the Lord,’ and many other verses just like it. This happens numerous times in the bible that no one can take away anything different than that. Also, it says in Hebrews 6:13, ‘for when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself.’ This is what makes God authority over everything. This direct quote explains who God really is and where he gets his authority from. Thus the Bible being the spoken words of God this also makes the Bible have authority. Inspiration as defined by Towns(Theology for Today, 897) is, ‘the supernatural guidance of the writers of Scripture by the Spirit of God, whereby what they wrote became the divine Word of God, transcribed accurately, reliably...

...Annotated Bibliography Shin, Grace. "Video Games: A Cause of Violence and Aggression." Serendip. N.p., 4 Jan. 2010. Web. 19 July 2010. . This is a good article for my paper because it discusses how video games cause more violent tendencies in people who play violent video games than people who don’t. It states, with several other good references that people who play violent video games are more prone to repeat what they see in the game. If the game is violent then their heart rate and adrenaline increase which could cause hostility. Sometimes, people actually get desensitized to killing because they do it in video games. Fagin, Claire, Pam Maraldo, and Dianna Mason. "Increasing Public Understanding of Nursing." NursingAdvocacy.org. N.p., 4 Jan. 2007. Web. 19 July 2010. .

It makes people think that doctors just sit around all day and work on a single case or that nurses don’t really do anything useful. Shelton, Donald E.

...Associate Level Material Appendix D Research Plan As part of your research plan, you must first draft a research question for your research paper that will guide the rest of your writing. A research question, which is more specific and focused than a general topic, is the question that your research paper will be answering. For example, if your general area of interest is social security, a possible research question might ask, “How can low-income families save more money if the United States had a reformed social security plan that includes personal retirement accounts?” As you develop a research question, keep in mind that you will need to research sources to support your topic. Do not pick a one-sided question that will limit your research. Instead, develop a research question that lends itself to further exploration and debate—a question you genuinely want to know the answer to. Try to pick a research question that is neither too broad (covering too much) or too narrow (covering too little). It should be broad enough to be discussed in a short research paper.

Writing an Annotated Bibliography

...Summary: an annotated bibliography should briefly describe the chosen source and then build the relevancy of the source with the current research. Components of Annotated Bibliography In a number of universities, professors demand for an annotated bibliography, in addition to the reference page. Often the annotated bibliography is required before starting the actual research and writing work. Therefore, it is important to understand what the annotated bibliography is and how it is formulated. Developing an Annotated Bibliography In research essays and coursework, an annotated bibliography is a page inserted before the reference page, which lists all sources used in the text with their brief description. The purpose of forming a list of sources with their description is to justify the relevance and significance of the sources you have used in your assignment. There are a number of websites like Wikipedia, eHow, Ask, etc., which are not considered as credible sources for academic papers. Thus, academic papers demands sources that are credible and relevant to your field of study. The annotated bibliography page is used to for this purpose in order to justify that the sources you have used for your academic paper are relevant and authentic. Components of Annotated Bibliography Some of the major components of an annotated bibliography are as under: 1. Discussing Core Ideas It is important that you give a brief account of the ideas and concepts that have been......

...04 Annotated Bibliography Germonpré, P. (2006). The medical risks of underwater diving and their control. International SportMed Journal, 7, 1-15. This article gives a very good overview over various risks that need to be considered while scuba diving. It discusses in great detail and very accurate the medical issues that divers can potentially face not only during the activity, but also days after the action. Although this article uses a lot of medical terms, it is very useful, because it gives a lot of facts and statistics, which I can incorporate into my presentation. Without going into medical details, I will also be able to use his examples about health concerns. Dr. Peter Germonpré, MD, is the Medical Director of the Centre for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy of the Belgian Armed Forces, as well as Medical Director of the Divers Alert Network, and has treated numerous divers, who suffered from injuries during their dives. He is also active in research projects and has published several research articles about diving injuries. This article has been written mainly for medical professionals, similar to a lot of other sources, which I have been using during my research. Hilchey, T. (1995, June 6). Risks to Spine Seen in Scuba Diving. New York Times.

...Creating APA Style Annotated Bibliographies, 6th Ed. Annotated bibliographies are not specifically addressed in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed. We have taken the example given online at the OWL at Purdue1 as the basis for formatting. It is a good idea to take careful note of any directions given in your assignment, and to check with your professor if you have specific questions. Contents 1. 2. 3. Guidelines Sample Annotated Bibliography Sample Standard Reference List/Bibliography Guidelines The following is a summary of things to know when creating an APA style annotated bibliography:  The annotated bibliography consists of two elements o Citation in current APA style format o Annotation The annotation will follow the citation on the next line. There is not an extra space— double spacing is used throughout. An annotation is different from an abstract. It should have several sentences summarizing the main points or ideas found in the item. It should then include your own statement evaluating the quality of the item and/or relating the item to your own research topic. For a longer annotated bibliography, it is appropriate to divide into sections or topics, and to title those sections as seems fitting.    Note: These annotations are for illustrative purposes only and have no relationship to the content of the sources. The citations are from the sample list found at the......

(2005, January). An exploration of nurse-patient relationships in accident and emergency. Accident and Emergency Nursing, 13(1), 9-14. This article discusses the nurse-patient relationships in the accident and emergency. It looks into nursing theory and research about three distinct experiences from the author. I found the article to be of interest in regards to the topic of barriers in forming the nurse-patient relationship in the emergency setting. Being an ER nurse I can relate to the authors thinking. It can be difficult to establish a relationship due to the limited time spent with the patient. Most relationships can be viewed as “superficial” or “if existing at all”. The nurse could also experience a short but memorable and intense relationship in the emergency setting. The author discusses three distinct relationships and examines them using nursing theory.

...Mediated Perceptions of Women and Female Adolescents: An Annotated Bibliography Green, C. (2013, April). The effects of romantic comedies on women and female adolescents. Paper presented at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), University of Wisconsin La Crosse, WI. In the article, Green points out how romantic comedies alter women’s and female adolescents’ perceptions of romantic relationships. She refers to Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory (as cited in Green, 2013) to explain how they learn from observation and copy behaviors that are depicted by romantic comedies. She advocates that romantic comedies cause women to have high expectations of their romantic relationships and that these movies or series support conventional patriarchal ideals and post-feminist ideologies. She explains that romantic comedies make women believe that the behaviors of the male partners that are depicted in the shows are truly ideal and should be expected in a romantic relationship. With all these explanations, the article answers my research question directly as can be predicted from its title. The article’s being supported with Social Cognitive Theory and concrete examples makes it more reliable. Moreover, it is quite recent. Johnson, K. R., & Holmes, B. M. (2009, July-September).
