This essay focuses on preparation of annotate bibliographies. If you have questions about the appropriateness of a source. Just email me.An “A” paper will often go beyond the minimum number of references.
Each student will prepare an annotated bibliography on the topic selected for the research paper..”1The annotate bibliography will provide a strong foundation from which to write the research paper. It will also build research skills that will be critical in not only the MPA program, but also in career employment.A minimum of 10 citations with annotation are required for this assignment.
The annotated bibliography will be prepare using a standard 12-point font and single spacing.The Cornell University Library offers an excellent guide. The preparation of annotate bibliographies at the following. URL: https://guides.library.cornell.edu/annotatedbibliography. Must rely on at least 10authoritative references. At least eight(8)of these references must be from academic journal articles or books by academic.
Scholars outside of readings assign for this course. Up to two(2) references may be from professional reports by nonpartisan organizations. Government agencies, or other reputable sources. If you have questions about the appropriateness of a source. Just email me.An “A” paper will often go beyond the minimum number of references.
It is important because the solution of any problem requires the prior identification. The relevant elements from which a solution can be construct. It is elusive, because the meaning of relevance appears to be difficult or impossible. To capture within conventional logical systems. The obvious suggestion that q is relevant to p if q is imply by p breaks. Under standard definitions of material implication, a false proposition implies all other propositions.
However though ‘iron is a metal’ may be implied by ‘cats lay eggs’ it doesn’t seem to be relevant. The way in which ‘cats are mammals’ and ‘mammals give birth to living young’ are relevant to each other. If one states “I love ice cream,” and another person responds “I have a friend name Brad Cook. Then these statements are not relevant. However, if one states “I love ice cream,” and another person responds. I have a friend named Brad Cook who also likes ice cream.
More recently a number of theorists have sought to account for relevance. In terms of “possible world logics” in intensional logic. Roughly, the idea is that necessary truths are true in all possible worlds. Contradictions (logical falsehoods) are true in no possible worlds. And contingent propositions can be order in terms of the number of possible worlds in which they are true. Relevance is argue to depend upon the “remoteness relationship” between an actual world. In which relevance is being evaluate and the set of possible worlds within which it is true.
