Abstract:

"This reference on basic and advanced APA style is designed especially for undergraduate students writing psychology research papers. It can also be used as a supplement in a first graduate research methods class or on entry into a graduate program. The book begins with an intro to APA style and some generalizations about how psychologists write. Chapters then offer guidelines on preparing the literature review paper, the introduction, the method results section, the abstract, the references section, formatting the manuscript, and preparing a presentation. The book can be assigned in a writing-intensive course such as research methods or experimental psychology; it can also be used to replace writing requirements in lower-level content courses such as developmental psychology. This sixth edition groups the interactive exercises together in one section; also new is a complete sample manuscript."--Provided by publisher.
