As a social science, the field of psychology is founded upon research, both qualitative and quantitative. In studying psychology, it is critical that one become familiar and comfortable with reading peer reviewed primary research articles, which present the structure and findings of research studies to the psychology community and beyond.
You are asked to find a peer-reviewed primary scientific article of interest to you in the field of social psychology, published in recent years (within the past five years maximum). If you need ideas for topics to search, review the topics covered in our textbook, e.g., attribution error, hindsight bias, altruism, influence, prejudice, attraction, stereotyping, etc. The article you review must be a primary empirical study published in a peer-reviewed journal (i.e., no editorials, book reviews, meta-analyses, or article responses).
For more information about the meaning of peer-reviewed journal articles, see http://library.sdsu.edu/reference/news/what-does-peer-review-mean
Note: A peer-reviewed journal includes peer-reviewed articles. An article is a summary of one particular research study in a journal. Do not refer to articles as journals.
Write a full 2.5-3 page, double-spaced summary. Per APA style, use Times New Roman, 12 point font, with 1” margins on all four sides of the page, and pagination (page numbers). Print on single side of paper. An APA title page is required for this assignment (see https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/apa_sample_paper.html for template of the APA 7th ed. title page.
The use of APA style is critical in psychology. When you refer to your article or any other source, be sure to include in-text citations, page numbers where required for quotes, and a References page. On the Reference page, write the full reference for your article in proper APA format. Remember that in addition to direct quotes, paraphrasing an author’s words or ideas also requires in-text citation; if this is not included, the work has been plagiarized. If you need a refresher on APA style for in-text citations and References pages, see https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/reference_list_basic_rules.html
IMPORTANT: In addition, before you submit your work, be sure to edit and proofread carefully for spelling, correct grammar, punctuation, complete sentences, proper vocabulary selection (choosing the correct word to say what you wish to express), and other hallmarks of excellent writing mechanics. It is helpful to have someone else read your work and provide feedback on the organization and flow of your thoughts, as well as proofreading errors, such as incorrect spelling or typos. We all make mistakes in our writing and need help to do our best work.
