Title Page
Paper is broken into 6 major Headings, each heading (see above) contains a minimum of a 2 paragraph summary: These two paragraphs summarize the heading topic supported by your references only.You must use in-text and the corresponding references for each section. The headings are pre-determined, and you must use them.


After each two-paragraph summary, then you provide a minimum of 2-4 annotated references that supported your summary. What is an annotated reference? A complete APA citation with the abstract. Use the abstract provided from each of the references -please don't write your own. This will make it easier for you.Note: Under each designated heading (see your 6 major heading in the first paragraph), you will write a 2 paragraph summary (must be a minimum of 2 paragraphs, 8 sentences with in-text citations using only original research studies (you can not use reports, news articles, commentaries/editorials, educational materials -- only original research studies). Also, you can not use papers that report on someone else's study, use the original work).


Anything that you cite in your 2 paragraphs must be in your annotated bibliography right below the paragraphs, and the in-text citations must coincide exactly to how it is listed in the annotated bib. You must provide a minimum of 2 to 4 annotated references after each summary.References:
Use only studies outside of the course for your specific population
Use a minimum of 1 large (100 participants to thousands) or National research study under each heading to support your summary. Some studies may be small sample sizes depending on your heading, e.g., help seeking attitudes. Yet, most populations have National statistics available when addressing pattern of use, treatment/interventions, comparison to other similar populations, etc.


Use original research, and only studies from 2010 to presentUse only scholarly, peer-reviewed research studies. The UMUC Library databases, including PubMed, are generally good sources. You can not use Web-based information such as Wikipedia, Mentalhealth.com, About.com, and popular news outlets. You can not use commentaries, editorials, nor student sites that provide papers! You also can not use a report that talks about studies. Go to the original source.

You are allowed to use meta-analysis studies as a study, if fact, these are wonderful studies to use because they evaluate many studies that have taken place under a given topic area at one time.


How can you tell if it is a study? Does it have an introduction? Does it provide a sample size? Does it have a methods, a statistical/analysis, a results, and discussion section? You can easily tell if it is a study if the research article is broken into these main areas -- that is what you are looking to obtain for your annotated bibliography and in-text citations. Large National studies may begin with an executive summary and be sectioned off differently, but you always look for methods and statistical analysis to insure that you indeed have a study in hand.Separate title page 12 point font Numbered pages 1" marginsSAMPLE


Here is a brief sample on just one heading (This sample does not meet the minimum requirements for you even this heading, but it should give you idea on how to do it):"Introduction and Pattern of Use: Heading
Summary: Alcohol is the substance older adults use most (Chou, Liang, and Mackenzie, 2011). Binge drinking among adults ages 65 and older is on the rise (Clapp, Reed, Martel, Gonzalez, and Ruderman, 2014), as is alcohol use in combination with other substances (Citation, 2011). Noting the unique needs and circumstances of older adults is key when addressing alcohol-related issues. (Of course, your summary will be longer than this).


Annotated Bibliography (remember you need to use the reference in your summary, and it must support what you are saying. Don't reinvent the wheel, use the abstract that is provided at the beginning of your research article. Copy and paste it, but use the same font as your the rest of your paper).


Chou, K.L., Liang, K., & Mackenzie, C.S. (2011). Binge drinking and Axis I psychiatric disorders in community-dwelling middle-aged and older adults: results from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC). Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 72(5), 640-647.
Chou, Liang, & Mackenzie (2011) used data from both waves of NESARC to evaluate binge drinking among middle aged and older adults (50+). Among older adults aged 65 to 79, 1.2 percent reported binge drinking less than once per month and 1.9 percent reported binge drinking at least once per month. For those aged 80+, only 0.2 percent reported binge drinking less than once per month and 0.3 percent reported binge drinking at least once per month. Older adults (male and female) who engaged in binge drinking at all were significantly more likely to have an alcohol use disorder than those who did not. For older adult women, binge drinking was also associated with a significantly greater likelihood of having panic disorder without agoraphobia and/or PTSD.Clapp, J. D., Reed, M. B., Martel, B., Gonzalez, M. C., & Ruderman, D. (2014).

Drinking behavior among low-income older adults: A multimethod approach to estimating alcohol use. Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, 38(11), 2862–2868.


Clapp, Reed, Martel, Gonzalez, & Ruderman (2014) screened 174 older adults (60+) living in a low-income residential senior center using the AUDIT to determine at-risk drinking. Almost half (46 percent) of the sample had monthly incomes below the federal poverty level. The authors found 41.2 percent said they drank, 25 percent drank at least once a week, and 9.8 percent were screened as engaging in risky drinking. Participants were significantly less likely to engage in at-risk drinking if they used prescription medications, had diabetes, were married, and/or were non-White. (You need at least five of these per heading to support your summary).
