You won’t actually be reading these articles and books yet; you will simply gather sources which, by virtue of their titles and abstracts, look promising in terms of information that will help you answer your research question. Below is your Task Sheet, an exercise to reinforce the tactics for conducting fruitful searches in the databases, and five student examples.*****SHOULD BE 4 PAGES, MLA FORMAT, DOUBLE SPACE**I need help finding certified sources= 6 must be peer-reviewed journals, 2 must be books (1-ebook, 1-hard book from the library, 2 can come from other sources (.gov & .edu)

Annotated Bibliography Task Sheet
Create a 4-page annotated bibliography of at least 10 credible, scholarly sources tied
to a central research question that you have developed. At least 2 of these sources
should be chapters from books (1 physical book and one e-book, and not reference
works such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, or how-to guides), at least 6 should be articles
from scholarly, peer-reviewed journals, and at least 2 can be from the following list:
a newspaper or magazine article or educational and government reports.
This process of collecting and annotating research is to prepare you for writing an
academic research paper later in the semester.
The sources included in this annotated bibliography should help you 1. Define and
expand upon a central research question and 2. Become a research-reading boss!
We will work to collect, compile, and closely read sources for this assignment.
This assignment should help you become more familiar with scholarly peerreviewed journal articles. Here is a brief definition for future reference☺
Peer Review is a process that journals use to ensure the articles they publish represent the
best scholarship currently available. When an article is submitted to a peer-reviewed
journal, the editors send it out to other scholars in the same field (the author’s peers) to
get their opinion on the quality of the scholarship, its relevance to the field, its
appropriateness for the journal, etc.
Periodicals that don’t use peer review (Time, Cosmo, Salon) rely on the judgment of its
editors whether an article is accurate, not on experts in that topic. That’s why you can’t
count on them for solid, scientific scholarship.
Scholarly peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an author’s
scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same
field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may a) be
accepted, b) considered acceptable with revisions, or c) rejected. Peer review requires a
community of experts in a given (and often narrowly defined) field, who are qualified
and able to perform impartial review. Impartial review, especially of work in less
narrowly defined or inter-disciplinary fields, may be difficult to accomplish…
Your annotated bibliography needs to list your central research question at the very
beginning (top of the page) and then it needs to contain the following for EACH
1. A CITATION of the source (in MLA format)
2. 1 short PARAGRAPH analyzing the background of the source. Background
info needs to include:
PUBLICATION INFO: What is the publication? How do you know it’s
credible? What do you know about the publication and how does this info
shape how you read and value the source?
AUTHOR INFO: Who is the author and what is his or her specific
background? What kind of credibility does the author have – is he or she a
scholar, a teacher, a journalist, or a community advocate? Does he or she
actually belong to the community that is being written about?
3. 1 PARAGRAPH providing a brief overview or synopsis of the article. You will
not necessarily be reading all 10 sources in depth at this point. Just work
on gathering this preliminary overview info from the title, abstract, and a
4. 1 PARAGRAPH explaining how the source could be used to answer your
central research question.
TIP: You can select many items then go through them all at once, deleting those which,
upon closer scrutiny, don’t really pass the test for relevance. Alternatively, you can
scrutinize them as you go. Either way, you are encouraged to create an account within the
database if, as EBSCOhost’s Academic Search Premier database allows you to, so that
you can save the results returned by a search and even an entire search along with its
search criteria. Saving search criteria can save you much time when, say, you are
interrupted and have to return the next day.
The screen for creating an EBSCO account (into which you can save articles and even
entire searches) is not obvious, so here are the steps to find it:
1. From the Libraries tab in Pipeline, click on “Databases” and then scroll down
until you see “Academic Search Premier.” Click on that link.
2. Up in the blue banner, click on “Sign in.”
3. On the next screen, you will see a small link, “Create a new account.” Don’t
forget to sign in each time you log-in to the database.

Does Hawai‘i Need a More Effective Tsunami Defense System?
Greenhough, B., Jazeel, T., & Massey, D. “Introduction: Geographical encounters with the Indian Ocean tsunami.” The
Geographical Journal. 171.4 (2005).Web. 369-371.
The authors are professors of Geography at Keele University, the University of Sheffield, and The Open
University, respectively. They have published several journal articles concerning the role of geographers in studying
and preparing for natural disasters – earthquakes and tsunamis primarily. Both of these scholars are reputable authors in
that they have published extensively within the field in scholarly, peer-reviewed publication. The article is the
introduction to a plenary session during the Royal Geographical Society Annual Meeting and is published in an
academic peer-reviewed journal. As this journal is a peer-reviewed publication it is a highly credible form of
scholarship. In this article in particular, the authors directly respond to the recent occurrence of a tsunami within the
The authors begin the introduction with an overview of the impact that the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami had on
geography, not only in terms of the natural disaster, but in terms of relationships within the discipline. They organize
the larger discussion into three categories: spatialities (such as geopolitical and socioeconomic identities), temporalities
(such as how to record and preserve the record of events leading toward and emerging from the disaster), and
responsibilities (to the science, and more importantly to the affected community). The opinions stated in this article
clearly conflict with the arguments made by Koch (2008). This article is useful as a research source for an essay on
careers in geography because it provides an illustration of the roles geographers play in a community, from preservers
of history to representing a social and economic conscience.
This source will be useful in answering my research question as it addresses the roles that geographers play in
assessing natural disasters and helping the public to adequately prepare for and properly understand them. Ultimately, I
plan to connect the argument in this source with local data from the Hawai‘i Geographical Society to see if the local
tsunami warning and research system in place in Hawai‘i meets the standards brought up in this article.
