PSYCHOLOGY WITH STYLE
GERALD

If you use someone's words or ideas, you must give them credit with a citation. This is particularly important, since the penalties for plagiarism are severe.

There are numerous ways to formally cite a reference in the text. Examples include Some fact (last name, year)., Last name (year) noted that..., or In , reported that... For more ideas, pay close attention to the articles you read.

The first time the reference is cited in the text, spell out all of the authors last names. For example, Miller, Rosellini, and Seligman (1975) suggested that... With articles that have three or more authors use the Latin abbreviation for "and others" when the reference is cited a second (or third) time. For example, Miller et al. (1975) suggested that... or ... some fact (Miller et al., 1975).

If the citation is in parentheses and you need to use the word "and", use the ampersand ('&') instead. For example, Some (e.g., Estes & Skinner, 1940) have suggested that..., as compared to Estes and Skinner (1940) have suggested... Note also that the opposite applies as well, that is, if the citation is not in parentheses, you must use the word "and". Multiple citations in parentheses are placed alphabetically and are separated by a semicolon and a space. For example, Some fact (Carlson, 1972; Moon, 1968; Partin, 1980).

If you cite something second hand, you must make it clear (e.g., Some fact (Smith, as cited in Jones, Year)). Note that in this example, only the Jones reference would be placed in the reference section.

Psychology Essay Done Right

I found that the article "Psychology with Style" has a very interesting headliner one that grabs the attention of the reader. I learned a lot about writing a good psychology paper after reading this article. It states how to format a psychology paper by giving concise measurement on indentation and margins as well as what would you find within a good essay.

A good essay consists of a introduction with a thesis and 3 or more supporting details followed by a conclusion that recaps on what's been said before to reinforce those concepts
