Annotated Bibliography Help!


I'm a first year student. I am currently tasked with writing an annotated bibliography as my first assignment and I just wanted to ask - am I supposed to be citing when I take anything out of the article, even though I have referenced the source already?

This might have a really obvious answer, but it's really confusing me haha.

My answer will be based on the APA referencing style, since you have not specified the style. In APA, you are not obliged to include any in-text citation, since the annotation is already pointing to the source. It is, however, it is not uncommon to see students start their article synopsis in the annotation with such phrases as "in this article, Xyz (2023) explains/explores/asserts"

I hope this help
