How to Write Psychology Research Reports and Assignments provides all the information required to prepare and write psychology research reports and assessments at the undergraduate level.
The text is intended to address the need for a set of guidelines for writing undergraduate-level psychology research reports and assessments. Itâ€™s aimed at first- and second-year students, although it may be useful to address weaknesses in preparation, writing, or even submitting assignments among more senior students. A student who grasps these concepts will have a sound basis for presenting and communicating research in a professional manner, and writing stylistically appropriate assessments.
The new edition has been updated to reflect the current style outlined by the APA in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th Edition. Given the importance of this style in Australian psychology programs, the authors have ensured this new edition is broader than simply formatting. This edition includes an increased focus on the various types of research papers and methodologies, updates to journal article reporting standards (JARS), the replication crisis, bias-free language guidelines, the publication process, and other types of writing (reviews, proposals, presentations).
