Featuring up-to-date writing techniques and the latest APA-style guidelines, this brief guide helps students master the skills necessary for writing in psychology. This brief guide takes students step-by-step through the writing process--from choosing a topic, to outlining, drafting, and revising their papers, to seeking feedback from peers. In addition, it presents thorough discussions of researching psychological literature in the library and on the Internet and presenting those findings in written and oral formats. Special attention is given to interpreting and reporting the results of statistical tests, as well as preparing data displays in tables and figures. Introducing students to all elements of professional writing in APA style, this supplemental guide provides practical tips for general types of writing that students encounter in the social sciences.
