This clear and functional handbook shows how to write and research in psychology as well as improve one’s overall writing ability.

Provides college students with a complete, easy-to-follow, one-stop reference source on how to research and write papers—including how to conduct research in psychology, how to incorporate citations, how to find information on topics related to psychology, and more.

Thorough review of formatting and writing basics instructions — Addresses fundamental concerns of all writers, exploring the reasons why we write, describing the writing process itself, and examining those elements of style, grammar, and punctuation that cause the most confusion among writers in general. Shows college students the key elements of good writing and effective communication, gives all students a handy and quick grammar reference source, and provides them with a detailed, easy-to-follow guide to preparing papers according to widely accepted formats.

Creative writing assignments — Offers practical writing exercises with step-by-step instructions. Heightens every students’ interest in the study of psychology, and frees professors from the duty of teaching college students to write the papers most often assigned in psychology classes.
