5th Week Discussion: The American Sociological Review (Annotated Bibliography Sample)
So this will be a series of discussions and project essays. This portion is for the discussion, that later will be used for the 2nd Project that I have already submitted to you. If you have any question please let me know.
Project 2 asks you to conduct a systematic library research project on a topic which relates to the sociology of the workplace. You choose the topic you want to study. Are you interested in job satisfaction, gender inequality in the workplace, sexual harassment or occupational socialization? Perhaps you would like to research the household division of labor, the global assembly line or the glass ceiling? Consult the syllabus and course materials for additional ideas. You are to write a detailed annotated bibliography on this topic by consulting ten (10) scholarly sociology journals. All topics must be approved by Module 5: Submit topic to appropriate Discussion Board.
An annotated bibliography is an alphabetical (by author’s last name) list of references (on a specific topic) which is followed by an “annotation” or brief summary and review of each article. An annotation is typically 150-200 words in length and describes the content and focus of the article. It should outline the content relevant to your topic and indicate the quality and accuracy of the research reported. In essence, each entry should inform the reader about the topic of the article, its quality and its relevance to your topic. An annotation is NOT the abstract of an article. It is a brief summary and commentary of the information in the article. For more information on annotated bibliographies please check out the website: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
The annotated bibliography should reference ten (10) recent (year 2000 and forward) sociology journals. You are welcome to consult additional sources beyond this article requirement.
Just a note regarding sociology journals…. Here is a list of peer reviewed sociology journals. This is not a complete list, you may have found articles in other sociology journals not on this list, and obviously your paper does not need cite articles from all of these journals. However, this list may be a good reference to have on hand. Remember, Project 2 should be a review of articles in the field of sociology - articles in newspapers such as the New York Times are not appropriate for this assignment. As always, please contact your professor by email if you have any questions as you work on Project 2.

During MODULE 5, please present your topic for the annotated bibliography in the appropriate discussion board. The professor will approve the topic or offer you suggestions for modifying or changing the topic. This discussion board will also allow you to interact with students and learn about the topics each of you are interested in studying. This discussion board will also allow the professor to make suggestions of appropriate articles, authors and/or journals that relate to your annotated bibliography topic.
American Sociological Review.
The American job industry is always buzzing, with every day bringing its own changes and modifications. This is a brainchild of the American sociological association. It came into being for publishing some scholarly works on sociology, periodically. It particularly focuses on the latest developments in the field of sociology, any research work, findings, and interpretations. The Journal looks at the relevance of the work collected, and its quality too, before publishing it. Such information can help in understanding the increasingly dynamic workplace in the American system. To ensure that it plays a major role in helping interested parties to understand the fundamentally sociological processes, the journal welcomes works from virtually all the areas incorporated in sociology. It helps understand how to deal and survive in the American workplace too. It is this information that makes it more reliable and credible as well.
Electronic Journal of Sociology.
Trying to keep abreast with the dynamic world of information technology, this is an electronic journal that offers one the chance of the flexibility to access sociological resources from whichever location they might be. The journal is particularly important in the essence that it eliminates all the painstakingly slow process of accessing traditional manual journals. It also boasts of a vast number of sociological resources that deal with issues affecting the job sector, thereby easing the fear of insufficient information. By being an electronic source, the journal grants everyone and anyone, the chance to access sociological knowledge and research work, something that was initially not possible since it was considered the field of scholars only. The journal is rich in sociological reports, scholarly columns, pedagogical artifacts, and commentaries; all aimed at creating more awareness about the expansive field of sociology, and in essence, the workplace environment. It can offer a critical resource for students and other scholars, as well as anyone interested in gathering information on sociology.

Additionally; students who want to pursue more in the field can also find the journal a vital tool.
Journal of Experimental Sociology
The journal helps in the understanding of the behaviors and dynamics of the workplace by particularly basing on the experimental and the semi-experimental aspects of the social environment. The journal offers insights into how to convert negative energy into positive energy at the workplace, how to make people more productive and generally, how to increase efficiency and productivity at the job environment. Through its various publications on the science of social psychology, there are various experimental studies that one can access for reference.
