Is an annotated bibliography left justified or indented as a regular paragraph?
APA style has specific rules for formatting an annotated bibliography.
An annotated bibliography is an APA formatted references list with an annotation (description and evaluation of the cited resource) provided below the reference.
Each entry in an annotated bibliography begins with a full references page citation. The citation begins on the left margin and subsequent lines are indented using a hanging indent. The annotation of the source follows the citation and lines up with the hanging indent.
Each entry is listed in alphabetical order using the first word of the citation (note that articles--a, and, the--are ignored for alphabetizing purposes if the citation begins with a title.) Also, like all APA documents, the annotated bibliography is typed in one of the six accepted font faces and sizes (Calibri 11 pt., Ariel 11 pt., Lucida Sans Unicode 10 pt., Times New Roman 12 pt., Georgia 11 pt., Computer Modern 10 pt.). The entire document is double spaced and there are no extra spaces between entries.
