Default Help from all the College Going People

Okay, it has been afew years since I have been to college and I am in serious need of some help. And trust me, when I ask for help, it means I really need help!

Okay I have to write 5 Annotated Bibliographies, and I am having a hard time understanding exactly what I have to do. I know it has to be in the APA format, I get that, and I get that it has to be relevant to now, so nothing from 1984, the guideline say they have to be from the year 2000-2007. It also says that it must be a journal article, can someone please give me an example of a journal article!!!!! HELP!!!!!!

Just select the type of style and fill in the information you have, I use this all the time, I even told my professor who is working on a doctorate about it.

A journal article is going to be basically a magazine, for people in the field....that a normal person wouldn't read. They are usually peer reviewed, and the journal which they are in has no pretty pictures or advertisements. They usually are not monthly editions; usually less often like a few times a year. The titles of the articles are very long and descriptive.

The journal articles are usually obtained through the library'* website of the college you are attending. The library pays a pretty penny for you to access them. If you are not going to a college (and are doing this just for fun ) I have access to two different college databases which I could use to find them for you. I would just need a very specific description on what you are writing about.

EDIT cuz my memory sucks right now.

Sorry, but I cannot help you with APA as we all use MLA around here....

Journals are basically industry newsletters/publishings/findings/reports etc. Written by x industry, for x industry.

You'll most likely need to go through the school as mentioned as they're normally distruted by sources requiring subscriptions, or maybe some can be found at larger libraries, or on campus libraries especially.

And the Wiki... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annotated_bibliography
