Exploring Psychology: Free Resources

Exploring Psychology

One thing I'll be doing from time to time on the exploring psychology blog is showcasing some outstanding free psychology resources. These should be particularly useful for psychology students.

The first thing I'd like to draw your attention to is Dr Abel Scribe's Student's Guide to APA Psychology. The Student's Guide to APA Psychology shows you how to document and format research papers in the style of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychologist. It has been Revised and updated to the new 5th edition of the APA Publication Manual.

Many psychology students underestimate the importance of referencing but from an academic perspective, referencing is vitally important. The cornerstone of any academic writing be it a term paper, essay, research project or dissertation is the dissemination of ideas. References, i.e., source material based on the views, opinions and research findings of others provide the conceptual framework necessary to engage in analytical debate.

The Student's Guide to APA Psychology will help keep you on the referencing straight and narrow.
