V. Format and Content
The format of an annotated bibliography can differ depending on its purpose and
the nature of the assignment. Contents may be listed alphabetically by author,
arranged chronologically by publication date, or arranged under headings that list
different types of sources [i.e., books, articles, research reports, etc.]. If the
bibliography includes a lot of sources, items may also be subdivided thematically,
by time periods of coverage or publication, or by source type. If you are unsure,
ask your professor for specific guidelines in terms of length, focus, and the type of
annotation you are to write.
Your bibliography should include an introduction that describes the research
problem or topic being covered by the bibliography, including any limits placed on
items to be included [e.g., only material published in the last ten years for empirical
literature], explains the method used to identify possible sources [such as
databases you searched or methods used to identify sources], the rationale for
selecting the sources, and, if appropriate, an explanation stating why specific types
of sources were deliberately excluded. The introduction’s length depends, in
general, on the complexity of the topic and the variety of sources included.
This first part of your entry contains the bibliographic information written in a
standard APA style.
The second part of your entry should summarize, in paragraph form, the content of
the source. What you say about the source is dictated by the type of annotation you
are asked to write [see above]. In most cases, however, your annotation should
describe the content and provide critical commentary that evaluates the source and
its relationship to the topic.
In general, the annotation should include the item in the following order: 1) an
introduction of the item; 2) a brief description of what the study was intended to
achieve and the research methods used to gather information; 3) the scope of
study [i.e., limits and boundaries of the research related to sample size, area of
concern, targeted groups examined, or extent of focus on the problem]; 4) a
statement about the study’s usefulness in relation to your research and the
topic; 5) a note concerning any limitations found in the study; 6) a summary of any
recommendations or further research offered by the author(s); and, 7) a critical
statement that elucidates how the source clarifies your topic or pertains to the
Things to think critically about when writing the annotation include:
Does the source offer a good introduction on the issue?
Does the source effectively address the issue?
Would novices find the work accessible or is it intended for an audience
already familiar with the topic?
What limitations does the source have [reading level, timeliness, reliability,
Are any special features, such as, appendices or non-textual elements
What is your overall reaction to the source?
If it’s a website or online resource, is it up-to-date, well-organized, and easy
to read, use, and navigate?
An annotation can vary in length from a few sentences to a couple of pages.
However, they are normally about 300 words–the length a standard paragraph.
The length will depend on the purpose of the annotated bibliography [critical
assessments are generally lengthier than descriptive annotations] and the type of
source [e.g., books generally require a more detailed annotation than a magazine
article]. If you are just writing summaries of your sources, the annotations may not
be very long. However, if you are writing an extensive analysis of each source,
you’ll need to devote more space.

Description: An annotated bibliography is a list of key references that includes books, articles, and documents, each accompanied by a brief descriptive paragraph. The paragraph is usually about 100-300 words and is an annotation that describes and explains the reference and how it will be used. For each entry, you must write a brief paragraph, called an annotation, which summarizes the central theme and scope of the book, article, thesis, or other document.
