Objective: The Annotated Bibliography is included as part of the Course Project because it provides the first step in the preparation of your Outline and Final Presentation. One of the issues regarding research, especially in the biosciences, medical, health/nutrition, and exercise/fitness fields, is the credibility of the sources used, particularly those obtained from various websites. By challenging you to carefully evaluate each of your potential sources, the Annotated Bibliography helps you to:

determine that the source article (e.g., peer-reviewed journal paper, book, website article) you chose is academically and scientifically credible,
explain how and why your source article is relevant to your course project’s required topics and subtopics
