FORMAT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 1  .American Psychological As

FORMAT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
1  .American Psychological Association (APA) Style
2a. Be sure to provide the COMPLETE BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION in APA STYLE, INCLUDING ELECTRONIC IDENTIFICATION (e.g., DOI or URL if appropriate).
b.  For each entry, include a 2-3 paragraph summary of the entry’s main  points and/or your overall evaluation of the reference.  The summary should be in your own words and not simply copied from the entry abstract or some other source; each citation summary should be written in complete sentences, typed, double-spaced, one-inch margins all around, 10-point font (10 entries total, 20 points per entry, submitted via Canvas no later than WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30 by 11:55pm). 
c.  ALL bibliographic entries should be from scholarly journals or book chapters (either online or hard copy; NO WIKIPEDIA CITATIONS).   It is recommended that you consult electronic resources such as JSTOR, Google Scholar, and Google Books for the ten entries.  If an article is behind a pay site, you may still use it without reading the entire complete source.  Be sure to include the complete bibliographic citation and use the available abstract for your annotation.  DO NOT COPY THE ABSTRACT WORD-FOR-WORD: Paraphrase it and put it in your own words.  
d.  The 10 entries should generally cover the theories/crime types covered in text. In other words, you should not turn in 10 citations on a single theory or type of crime; with flexibility you can draw from a variety of crime types/theories. There may be some repetition of content in your choices of chapters/articles, but the purpose is to thoroughly familiarize yourself with the information in the process of answering the weekly discussion questions. It is recommended that you search for articles while reading each chapter week-by-week, and choose references that will add to your knowledge of the theories and aid in answering the discussion questions. 
e.  It will be easiest for you to research and choose your entries via electronic searches, but you may also search hard copy sources in a library.  I do not need nor want hard copy articles of your sources, but you must supply complete bibliographic citations per a and b above.
f.  The entries should be organized as a list alphabetized by author’s last name per APA Style.  The title should read ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR SYSTEMS.  This annotated bibliography should be typed (double-spaced, one-inch margins all around) and submitted to me via Canvas  no later than WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30 by 11:55pm.
g.  The Annotated Bibliography should be an original composition, not recycled from another class. Additionally, chapters from textbook should not be used as references in the bibliography.  If you have any questions, PLEASE CONTACT ME. 
3.  Below are several links to familiarize you with creating and assembling an annotated bibliography:

Should We Eliminate the Special System of Juvenile Justice? 
Is the juvenile court system a “scaled-down, second-class” criminal court? Or, are there real differences that call for a different way of seeking justice with youthful offenders? What would be the consequences of putting all juveniles on trial the same as adults, but allowing “young age” to be a mitigating factor in sentencing? 
Put your arguments and comments about this topic on the discussion board (don’t act juvenile, give us some adult answers).

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read Chapters 3 and 4 of your textbook.
To prepare for your Final Paper (due in Week 5), you will develop an outline, using the sample below, that includes an abstract, problem statement, and annotated bibliography. 
Problem Statement: Evaluate a social problem and how it impacts the criminal justice system in the United States. You will recall that in the Post Your Introduction activity in Week 1 you identified a social problem. You may use that problem for your Final Paper or choose a different social and criminal justice problem.
Outline: Using the sample below as a guide, provide an outline for your Final Paper. Remember that papers are expected to define a significant problem faced by the justice system, describe the scope and consequences of the problem, and discuss society’s responses to the problem (including public policies and other less formal responses). Your paper should also present a clearly reasoned alternative, supported by scholarly research.
Annotated Bibliography: The purpose of creating a list of sources is to assist you in organizing and evaluating your research.
In your paper,
Identify the problem. Be sure to narrow your problem enough to allow a focused examination.
Describe the individual, social, and criminal justice system implications of this problem. Discussion of implications should be supported by accurate research data.
Summarize what experts say about the problem.
Explain what we, as a society, have done to remedy this problem. Consider public policies and other, less formal responses.
Analyze to what extent public policies and other, less formal responses are effective in addressing this problem.
Propose an alternative solution to the problem.
Analyze why the alternative is, or can be, an effective response to the problem. Remember to consider negative consequences of the alternative response.
Conclude with your thoughts about your chosen social problem. This is a good place to include personal opinions, assuming you wish to share them in a research paper.
Create an annotated bibliography Links to an external site.. In the bibliography, include the following:
Name of the source, including the complete bibliographic reference in proper APA format, 
Summary of the source (at least one paragraph) including how this source will contribute to your paper.
In short, define a problem, discuss the response, and provide alternative responses to the problem. For example, your problem could be drug use and abuse, with a focus on prescription drug abuse among teenagers. Your description of the problems should be fact based, relying on expert opinion. Your alternative can be an adjustment of current policy or a new direction. For example, you may propose longer prison sentences, or legalization of all drugs. Be creative, although suggestions must be supported by scholarly research.
