Human Resource Policy Project: Annotated Bibliography Assignment Instructions
This project summarizes the research that will be used in the HRPP paper later in the course. The HRPP project allows you to select four HR policies that are relevant to a small business and to create a case for their inclusion in a handbook to employees.
The annotated bibliography for your 4 selected human resource topics must consist of at least 10 reputable, practitioner sources (ex. SHRM) or scholarly journals. Government websites (FLSA, EEO, etc.) can also count towards your sources (note some government websites will not be a match – such as the dress code for the Wisconsin’s FDA investigators. The .gov isn’t automatically an applicable source. Be in current APA format, and contain persistent links so others may have instant access. Include a proper title page. It is recommended that you review the HRPP paper instructions within the class (which explains the HRPP in more detail and has policy suggestions) and the writing center’s annotated bibliography example (linked below).
It is highly recommended that you use Liberty University’s Jerry Falwell Library online resources. A librarian is available to assist you in all matters pertaining to conducting your research, including what constitutes a scholarly article (reputable, professional and/or scholarly journals, and/or informational venues that deal with the content of the course).
The Jerry Falwell Library librarian has asked that the following be shared:
Articles in Business Source Premier have a “Permalink” you can use to post in your assignment. The permalink, in most cases, will allow anyone to access your article. Articles in Business Source Complete have a “Permalink” you can use in your assignment. The Permalink should allow anyone to access your article. To get the Permalink, look the article up in Business Source Complete and click the article title. Then click the “Permalink” link that appears in the right column.
The annotations are designed to help your classmates better understand and more easily learn about your topic. The annotation is not a normal required component of APA; rather, it is a specific additional requirement for this assignment. Note the following regarding your annotated bibliography:
· An annotated bibliography is a list of the journals and resources you used.
· Each citation is followed by a brief paragraph (at least 150 words) that is descriptive and evaluative—the annotation.
· The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
· For more information on annotations, see this example from the writing center: https://www.liberty.edu/casas/academic-success-center/wp-content/uploads/sites/28/2020/04/Sample-APA-7th-Annotation-Reviewed-final-04282020.pdf .
Do not cut and paste from your sources, as this constitutes plagiarism. Regardless of the reason, in the event of plagiarism, you will receive 0 points for the entire assignment.
