· Match numbers with Turnitin are going up, please be very careful to put your annotated bibliography summaries in your own words (summarize, paraphrase, and change sentence structure. Please be sure to put in your own words and cite). No more than 1 short direct quote (<10% total paper).

· The journal indicates, the article speaks is not correct. The authors (or spell out the authors last names in APA format with date). Journal and articles cannot speak, indicate, discuss, etc. Also, using “it” discusses should not be used in formal writing.
· You cannot have an “amount of people or participants,” you can have a number or percentage of people. “In regards to” is incorrect, it’s in regard to.
· APA format is NOT MLA format, please be sure that you are using the correct format. You will continue to lose points for not using APA format.

· Some students have difficulty with being specific and using it or this, in lieu the specific source, such as… The investigators, The researchers, the participants, etc.
