Four sources must be quantitative. Each source must deal with the broad policy topic of your research question. Please include your research question at the top of the first page of text.All sources must be scholarly and should be, but are not required to be, no more than 15 years old. Most non-scholarly sources fall into one of the following categories:Periodicals – These are intended for a lay audience, not a scholarly audience, and are also known as magazines.Certain Websites – Many websites are not research-based and are, therefore, not scholarly (some examples of inappropriate sources are: Think Tank position papers, news reports, government agency reports, blogs, etc.). Be cautious when using web-based sources. You can access scholarly journals and excellent research online via the Jerry Falwell Library; use this tool instead of relying on an Internet search engine.For each source, you will provide the reference/citation in currentTurabian format, followed by 200-250 words that serve to summarize the source and what it will accomplish in your paper. Be sure to provide a summary of the source, notan evaluation. Consider the following questions as you summarize your sources:What are the main arguments?What is the point of the book or article?What topics are covered?If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say?Submit your Annotated Bibliography by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 3.
