To conduct accurate research for the Annotated Bibliographies, you should focus on peer-reviewed journals, other scholarly resources, and/or professional resources that are considered to have reliable information.

After selecting either the

At least one each of the articles must include information on public finance and budget management and/or preparation. These articles, in addition to

the textbook, will be used as the basis for your organizational budget plan. (There is a Sample Annotated Bibliography in the Ashford Writing Center for additional assistance.)

Each annotation within the annotated literature review should consist of the following:

  • Create a full title citation of the article in APA format according to the standards established by the Ashford Writing Center.
  • Create an annotation containing at least four full sentences describing the contents of the article and how it relates to your chosen agency's organizational budget plan. Explain the elements of public finance as they are discussed in the article(s). Explain the basics

    of budget management and/or preparation described in the article(s).
  • It may be helpful to ask yourself the following basic questions as you prepare your annotation:
    • Who wrote the article? Is there any mention of their specific level or area of expertise?
    • What was the purpose or rationale of the research?
    • What methodology was used?
    • What were the results?
    • How does the research contribute to the field as a whole?

The Annotated Literature Review

  • Must be three to five double-spaced pages (750 to 1250 words) in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style
