Provide a Bibliography of your course project. (25 points)
The Bibliography should have 12-15 references minimum supporting your research. The expectation is that you will use the APA to produce the Bibliography for format. Please include a cover sheet with your full name, the case name, our course number (NETW583), and the date you submit. Follow the steps below to produce your Bibliography. Also reference the rubrics for this deliverable.
Creating an APA Bibliography
A bibliography is similar in many ways to a reference section, but there are some important differences. While a reference section includes every source that was actually used in your paper, a bibliography may include sources that you considered using but may have dismissed because they were irrelevant or outdated.
Bibliographies can be a great way to keep track of information you might want to use in your paper and as a way to organize and keep track of the information that you find in different sources. In order to write an APA format bibliography, here are four steps you should take.
1. Start on a New Page
Your working bibliography should be kept separate from the rest of your paper. Start it on a new page, with the title “Bibliography” centered at the top.
2. Gather Your Sources
Compile all the sources you might possibly use in your paper. While you may end up not using all of these sources in your paper, having a complete list will make it easier later on when you prepare your reference section. This can be particularly helpful as you outline and write your paper. By quickly glancing through your working bibliography, you will be able to get a better idea of which sources will be the most appropriate to support your thesis and main points.
3. Reference for Each Source
Your references should be listed alphabetically by the author’s last name and should be double-spaced. The first line of each reference should be flush left, while each additional line of the reference should be a few spaces to the right of the left margin, which is known as a hanging indent.
4. Create an Annotation for Each Source
Normally a bibliography contains only references’ information, but in some cases, you might decide to create an annotated bibliography. An annotation is a summary or evaluation of the source. An annotation is a brief description of approximately 150 words describing the information in the research, your evaluation of its credibility, and how it pertains to your topic.2 Writing one of these for each piece of research will make your writing process faster and easier. Not only is this step helpful in determining which sources to ultimately use in your paper, but also your instructor may require it as part of the assignment so they can assess your thought process and understanding of your topic.
