The topic is Non-renewable energy. Search for four published, peer-reviewed journal articles on that topic. You will then need to read each article and summarize/evaluate the research in an annotated bibliography. The article must be properly cited. The four articles must be from four different journals. Be sure to give your paper an appropriate title so the scope of your topic is known.
An annotated bibliography is a bibliography that includes a summary of the text. The purpose of this assignment is to expose you to peer-reviewed scientific literature and assess your reading comprehension and ability to efficiently read and summarize a scientific paper. You will learn how to search for and select quality, peer-reviewed scientific papers. You will need to clearly and objectively summarize each article in a succinct manner.
Annotations should include the main arguments from the source, a summary of at least the methods, analysis, and conclusion, the approach used and any major findings, and your critical evaluation. Take care not to include any unnecessary details, as the goal is to summarize each source as succinctly as possible.
