WRITING FOR PSYCHOLOGY ? A STUDENT'S GUIDE 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 student friendly manual will help students adhere to the basics of American Psychological Association (APA) style; refine critical thinking skills, library search skills, revising skills, editing skills, and proofing skills; and avoid plagiarism. This text is an adaptation of an earlier text published by Robert O'Shea. Checklists for students, which have been praised by reviewers, precede the summary at the end of every chapter, giving students the chance to make sure they have been thorough in their reports.
