Students are required to submit an annotated bibliography of a minimum of 12 primary sources from peer-reviewed, social science literature on the terrorism and homeland security topic of your choice, and you must put the topic of the research paper at the top of the bibliography (Some 2 – 4 sentences that explain the research topic you hope the bibliography will support).
You must email me with your proposed research topic. This could be at any point in the preparation of your bibliography (it is always best to let the availability of source material influence your final research topic decision). I will grade the bibliography independent of the approval, but the later research paper must be on a topic approved in advance.
I only expect 4-5 sentences for your bibliography’s annotations with one or two of those sentences explaining how the source will likely support your research paper. The topic of your planned research that the bibliography will support must be explained at the top of the document and consist of more than just a single-sentence title. Sources from media or popular literature will not count toward the requirement of 12 peer-reviewed sources but will be accepted as part of your bibliography.
