An annotated bibliography is a brief summary and analysis of a journal article. For this assignment, you must provide an annotated bibliography of at least six peer-reviewed academic journal articles describing research related to your chosen topic. The articles do not need to be empirical studies but are required to be primary sources. Each article must have been published within the past five years.
For more information on the required format of the bibliography, review an annotated bibliography template. The annotated bibliography will be used as a part of the literature review for your course project due in Week 5.
Choose any one of the following topics for your position paper and create an annotated bibliography for your topic:
- Treatments for Mood Disorders: Comparing and Contrasting Biological and Psychosocial Approaches
- Suicide: Prevention, Intervention, and the Relationship with Mood Disorders
