Product Description
Now updated to reflect the changes made from the fifth to the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, this book takes the reader step-by-step through crafting research questions or theses; executing library database searches; analyzing, evaluating, and synthesizing literature; drafting specific parts of a paper; and more.

Writing samples, including two full-length student papers in draft, marked-up, and final form, illustrate key concepts such as how to synthesize literature, how revision differs from editing, and how to recognize and avoid plagiarism. Guidance on how to communicate with instructors on a professional level is given, and the book shows examples of checklists and grading rubrics instructors might use.

A self-quiz to engage the reader's knowledge of APA style and format is also included, as well as example reference formats and other quick-reference style tools.
