assignment will be one of several throughout your PhD program that we
use to help you prepare for the dissertation process. One of the core
competencies necessary to succeed in a doctoral program is the ability
to identify other research that pertains to your own. This means you’ll
have to identify similar research, read the papers, and assimilate prior
work into your own research. An annotated bibliography helps you
develop and hone these research skills.
This assignment is listed on the syllabus as “Mid-term research paper” and is worth 20% of your grade. Your paper will be an annotated bibliography, specifically focusing on the “Depth” topic (i.e. Defense in Depth) in the context of protecting National Infrastructure.
paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need
to include at least seven (7) resources, ALL of which must:
1) Be current. Published within the last few years.
2) Be peer-reviewed.
3) Relate directly to Defense in depth in the context of protecting National Infrastructure.
Additionally, you MUST upload a pdf of EVERY paper that appears in your reference list.
that an annotation is not the same as an abstract. Abstracts are
descriptive. Your annotations are to be evaluative and critical. Give me
enough information for me to decide if I’m interested enough to read
the paper, and also how you perceive the paper. Don’t go skimpy on these
annotations, but DO NOT write too much here. Quality is far more
important that quantity. This exercise is for each of you to demonstrate
that you can identify, categorize, and digest multiple research
resource you choose must be peer reviewed. That means the paper must
have undergone a formal peer review before being published in a journal
or presented at a conference. You must ensure that your resources have
undergone rigorous reviews. In most cases, you can find out the review
process for a conference or journal by visiting the appropriate web
site. Do not simply assume that a resource is peer reviewed – check it
