identify other research

This  assignment will be one of several throughout your PhD program that we  use to help you prepare for the dissertation process. One of the core  competencies necessary to succeed in a doctoral program is the ability  to identify other research that pertains to your own. This means you’ll  have to identify similar research, read the papers, and assimilate prior  work into your own research. An annotated bibliography helps you  develop and hone these research skills.

This  assignment is listed on the syllabus as “Mid-term research paper” and  is worth 10% of your grade. Your paper will be an  annotated bibliography, specifically focusing on the topic of using  simulations for policy making. The papers you select must address how IT  is used to model behavior for policy making.

You paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need to include at five (5) resources, ALL of which must:

1) Be current. Published within the last few years.

2) Be peer-reviewed.

3) Relate directly to using simulations for policy making. The papers you select must address how IT is used to model behavior for policy making.

USE YOUR OWN WORDS!!!! DO NOT PLAGIARIZE!!!! 

Remember  that an annotation is not the same as an abstract. Abstracts are  descriptive. Your annotations are to be evaluative and critical. Give me  enough information for me to decide if I’m interested enough to read  the paper, and also how you perceive the paper. Don’t go skimpy on these  annotations, but DO NOT write too much here. Quality is far more  important that quantity. This exercise is for each of you to demonstrate  that you can identify, categorize, and digest multiple research  papers. 

Every  resource you choose must be peer reviewed. That means the paper must  have undergone a formal peer review before being published in a journal  or presented at a conference. You must ensure that your resources have  undergone rigorous reviews. In most cases, you can find out the review  process for a conference or journal by visiting the appropriate web  site. Do not simply assume that a resource is peer reviewed – check it  out. 

Here are a few URLs with additional information: (I strongly suggest that you look at these. Really.)
