Abstract:

"Writing for Psychology offers concise assistance for students writing their research analyses using APA Style. By providing concrete examples of common errors, the authors are able to show--rather than merely tell--students what to do and what to avoid. This manual will help students adhere to the basics of APA style; refine critical thinking skills, library search skills, revising skills, editing skills, and proofing skills; and avoid plagiarism. Checklists precede the summary at the end of every chapter, giving students the chance to make sure they have been thorough in their reports."--Publisher's website.
