Please turn in your assignment in a single pdf-file via moodle.

By now you should know what question you will be working on for this class, you should have a basic idea of the structure, your final paper will have and you should be aware of the kind of content you will need to fill each subsection of your paper. You have also hopefully realized that for a scientific paper, you will need a variety of reliable, scientific sources and you are likely to have found a few already. Your personal experience cannot serve as a reliable, scientific source, it can, however, be helpful in defining the relevance of your question (please keep it, however, to a minimum, you can mention your personal experience, but more as a side note, not as a main building block of your argumentation). Last, but not least, you should have uploaded your first assignment in moodle. No further deadline-extensions will be granted for the first assignment. Please submit this second assignment within your group’s deadline and remember that you need to turn in all three your assignments, in order to pass this class.

In moodle you will find examples and helpful information specifically relevant to “literature reviews”, the kind of paper most of you will attempt to write during this semester.

Now it is time to dive into the sources, to talk about and work on finding, evaluating, recording and citing other people’s work, as well as any other kind of evidence you might use to support your argument and thus to answer your research question.  Please use the next weeks for an intensive literature search and find your own of saving and recording your sources. Consider different kinds reference software and choose one of them to use for your paper ("Endnote" has been bought by the HSRW, there are also open-sources reference-software options)

  1. Type in the (preliminary) title of your paper, as well as your name and matriculation number at the top of the first page.
  2. Create an annotated bibliography in preparation for your paper (see link in moodle for explanations on annotated bibliographies). It should include all sources you intend to use for your final report and cover a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 50 different sources (individual references), please number your references. Consider at least three different types of references (e.g. scientific paper from a journal, book, book chapters, online resources, movies, mass media, etc.). Provide the complete reference information for each source and a comment summarizing the main argument (not just listing the content) of the source (brief, but precise information is helpful here!).
  3. Format your bibliography in an appropriate, readable way, don’t forget to use spell check, number the references, create a pdf-file and upload it within your group’s deadline in moodle.

Completing this assignment and working thoroughly on it, should help you not only identify main sources for your paper, but also formulate lines of scientific argumentation that you should be able to use for your final report. You should also choose and use a bibliography style and ideally also practice the use of reference management software.

Good luck! Margarita Stolarova
