You will write a 6-7 page APA style research paper that summarizes research on any topic related to psychology. The paper should cite and reference at least 5 sources of information. You can only use sources from our library. This includes EBSCOhost, Library Catalog, and EBSCOhost e-books. Note that each source needs to be cited at least once and included in the References. The paper should be between 6 and 7 pages including the title page, abstract, literature review, conclusion, and references.
Be sure you use scholarly sources. If you choose, you may also use a few websites in addition to research articles. Some examples include: psychologicalscience.org, apa.org, NIMH.gov, NIDA.gov. To reiterate, this is in ADDITION to any research articles you obtained from the school’s library. You canâ€™t use any â€œ.comâ€ because there is no one to govern the truth of many of these sites.
CITE your references in EVERY paragraph, and USE YOUR OWN WORDS! Please do not copy word for word from your sources unless you put those words in quotation marks.
You must summarize what you have read using plain English. Do not write scientific jargon (such as lists of prescription drugs or the ingredients of drugs) that is not understandable without a medical degree.
