Buy Annotated Bibliography Online

There are going to be plenty of times while you are in college when you will not only have to write a complex research paper, but will have to include an annotated bibliography with it. An annotated bibliography goes beyond just simple citations. After each citation, there needs to a descriptive and elaborate paragraph, about 150 words, about the source listed in the citation.

HIST 205 Annotated Bibliography

Filled Star Filled Star Filled Star Filled Star Filled Star

As always, my writer was nothing short of amazing. When I assigned this project to him, it was done in two days even though my deadline wasn't for another week. Proper APA style formatting was used for the entirety of the document, running head included, page numbers, and a reference page. The writer and company deserve five stars.

Writing an Annotated Bibliography

Each annotation needs to do the following:

  1. Give information on the source's relevance to the topic of your paper, how accurate it is and its quality. The point is that it enables you to make sure your source is very relevant to what you are discussing in your research paper. For example, if your research paper is on the brutal methods of punishment used during the Middle Ages, the sources you use for it should be relevant to the Middle Ages.

  2. Evaluate the author of the source, their authority and background when it comes to the topics discussed in the source. This requirement ensures that you pick a source by an author who is well-renowned in the subject that your paper is about. The source you use has to be authored by someone who is an expert in the field you are writing about. If you’re writing a paper about the effects of heroin on the human body, you need to use sources that are written by doctors and drug experts.

  3. Summarize the central theme of the source. This is why you need to read each of your sources carefully when an annotated bibliography is required. If you can't pinpoint the main theme of the source text, how are you going to relate it to your paper?

  4. Compare and contrast it with another source you are also citing. This is yet another reason you have to actually read your sources.

Here is an example of an Annotated Bibliography, originally found on the Purdue Online Writing Lab website (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/03/). The writing style used is MLA.

Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. New York: Anchor Books, 1995. Print.

Lamott's book offers honest advice on the nature of a writing life, complete with its insecurities and failures. Taking a humorous approach to the realities of being a writer, the chapters in Lamott's book are wry and anecdotal and offer advice on everything from plot development to jealousy, from perfectionism to struggling with one's own internal critic. In the process, Lamott includes writing exercises designed to be both productive and fun.

Lamott offers sane advice for those struggling with the anxieties of writing, but her main project seems to be offering the reader a reality check regarding writing, publishing, and struggling with one's own imperfect humanity in the process. Rather than a practical handbook to producing and/or publishing, this text is indispensable because of its honest perspective, its down-to-earth humor, and its encouraging approach.

Chapters in this text could easily be included in the curriculum for a writing class. Several of the chapters in Part 1 address the writing process and would serve to generate discussion on students' own drafting and revising processes. Some of the writing exercises would also be appropriate for generating classroom writing exercises. Students should find Lamott's style both engaging and enjoyable.

Now here is another same from the same website, but this time, it’s an APA Annotated Bibliography

Ehrenreich, B. (2001). Nickel and dimed: On (not) getting by in America. New York: Henry Holt and Company.

In this book of nonfiction based on the journalist's experiential research, Ehrenreich attempts to ascertain whether it is currently possible for an individual to live on a minimum-wage in America. Taking jobs as a waitress, a maid in a cleaning service, and a Walmart sales employee, the author summarizes and reflects on her work, her relationships with fellow workers, and her financial struggles in each situation.

An experienced journalist, Ehrenreich is aware of the limitations of her experiment and the ethical implications of her experiential research tactics and reflects on these issues in the text. The author is forthcoming about her methods and supplements her experiences with scholarly research on her places of employment, the economy, and the rising cost of living in America. Ehrenreich’s project is timely, descriptive, and well-researched.

Now, here is one more example – in the Chicago manual style -also from the same website.

Davidson, Hilda Ellis. Roles of the Northern Goddess. London: Routledge, 1998.

Davidson's book provides a thorough examination of the major roles filled by the numerous pagan goddesses of Northern Europe in everyday life, including their roles in hunting, agriculture, domestic arts like weaving, the household, and death. The author discusses relevant archaeological evidence, patterns of symbol and ritual, and previous research. The book includes a number of black and white photographs of relevant artifacts.

These are great examples of what an annotated bibliography should be. But you can see how annotated bibliographies can differ depending on what writing style you use. These samples do show that you have to be concise in summarizing and evaluating the text.

Double The Work

It's like another paper within a paper. If you have to use a lot of sources, your annotated bibliography will be about as long as your actual research paper. The requirement of an annotated bibliography means you'll have to read each source critically and use your analytical skills, because you need to make sure your chosen sources actually relates to the topic that you are writing about.

An annotated bibliography can be very detailed and elaborate, depending on your professor. If you are a full-time student, you have to do all this work for one research paper along with the assignments for all your other courses and your required studying for any exams you have. You may also have a job you need to pay your bills, if you are living on your own and not with your parents still. It's enough to make even the most organized student overwhelmed and filled with anxiety. To avoid this, you can buy an annotated bibliography online from Prescott Papers.

Advantages of Having Your Annotated Bibliography Done by Prescott Papers

When you purchase an annotated bibliography from Prescott Papers, the following advantages apply:

  1. It gives you more time to devote to the actual research paper the annotated bibliography is for. This is especially beneficial when the paper topic is complex and lengthy. For example, you may have to write a 15-page research paper for your American History class, with an annotated bibliography that includes at least 10 sources. Having the annotated bibliography part done by Prescott Papers means you only have to do the work on the American History paper (unless you order that from us too, of course).

  2. You can spend more time doing the required work for your other classes. Most likely, you will have a significant amount of work for all of your classes. When you buy an annotated bibliography from Prescott Papers, you can leave your annotated bibliography in the hands of an Ivy-League professor or graduate who does not have the amount of classes that you do. This means they can focus more time on making sure your annotated bibliography is cohesive and ranks among the best in quality.

  3. That brings us to the next advantage of ordering a custom annotated bibliography. At Prescott Papers, we use elite writers who are Ivy-league professors and graduates. This means you can be sure you'll have a high-quality annotated bibliography that goes along with your essay. We use people who are experts in a variety of subjects. So you have an annotated bibliography required for a research paper in Russian history, we'll get a scholar in Russian history, one who is familiar with many source materials, to write it for you. These scholars that we use are skilled at evaluating sources because they’ve had to do it on their own papers through the undergraduate and graduate years of college.

  4. Also, when you pay for an annotated bibliography, the scholarly expert Prescott Papers uses to work on it for you will be fully knowledgeable in the different formats used for an annotated bibliography. You can relax knowing your annotated bibliography will be written in the correct format, according to your instructions. They will also be familiar with the different writing styles, including MLA, APA and Chicago Manuel style. Finally, any annotated bibliography you receive from us will be free of grammatical and spelling errors. The Ivy-League scholar working on the project for you will review their work two or three times at least to ensure there are no mistakes.

  5. Also, when you order a custom annotated bibliography online at Prescott Papers, support will be available to you by phone and email – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means that you can always rely on us to get you the answers you need. You can feel free to contact us at any time to see how your annotated bibliography is coming along. Plus, any communications, as well as transactions, you have with us are kept completely confidential.

  6. We can also promise you same day and overnight delivery of an annotated bibliography. Now, why would this be? Here's one instance: You've focused mostly on the actual paper itself, thus, you end up leaving the annotated bibliography until the last two days before the paper is due. Then, you realize you have no time to write it. This is why Prescott Papers promises same day and overnight delivery for any rush orders for your annotated bibliography. They can make this promise because they can employ Ivy-League professors that have either already read the source material for your paper, or can read those sources quickly.

Academic Assistance Option

Now let’s say you've taken all of those benefits into consideration, but you think: “I really need to do my annotated bibliography myself.” Maybe you’ve already done the majority of your work on the annotated bibliography for your paper. But, you are inexperienced in writing annotated bibliographies and are unsure if you are doing it correctly. Another possible scenario is that you’ve read the sources, but are lost on how to format and write the annotations so that they make sense. One way Prescott Papers differs itself from other custom writing services is they also provide academic assistance. You can pay to have one of our Ivy-League scholars go over your annotated bibliography with you.

Benefits of Academic Assistance for an Annotated Bibliography

  1. You will have an extra valuable set of eyes that can look at your work objectively. In addition to checking your spelling and grammar, they can also edit your annotated bibliography so that it's formatted correctly as per the instructions given to you by your professor. You can be sure that extra set of eyes will belong to an Ivy-League professor or graduate who specializes in the subject of your paper. Why rely on classmates that are also still learning about annotated bibliographies or your professor who is extremely busy when you can use Prescott Papers for this purpose.

  2. You will learn more about annotated bibliographies from the professional expert going over it with you. They will give you pointers for any future annotated bibliographies you’ll have to do in the future. They can help you with formatting, structure and other stylistic elements involved in writing a great annotated bibliography.

  3. You can also devote more time polishing the actual paper, while your annotated bibliography is being analyzed and edited by Prescott Papers. You can also take the knowledge you are obtaining from the academic help with the annotated bibliography and apply it to your research paper


When you order a custom annotated bibliography online from Prescott Papers, you’ll be able to reap all the benefits discussed above. To illustrate, let’s say there is a student named Travis. Travis is studying Anthropology at the University of Delaware. Travis has to include an annotated bibliography with at least 15 sources at the end of a 20-page research paper. He is also busy with four other classes and a part-time job at a grocery store. He decides to place an order with Prescott Papers, and he is happy that he did. He gets to spend more time writing his actual paper and working on his extensive readings and assignments for his other classes. Plus, he loves that he can get in touch with a representative at Prescott Papers any time of day. Now, do what Travis did. The next time you have an annotated bibliography, consider Prescott Papers. I guarantee the experience will make you as happy as Travis.
