I’m working on a Psychology question and need guidance to help me study.
Orientation to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) Part II
The Orientation to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA Manual) assignment is a two-part assignment to enhance students’ knowledge and application of academic writing using APA style.
APA style is not only a standard of writing for psychologists, but also for writers (i.e., students and authors) in behavioral and social sciences such as counseling. Students will be asked to write and submit a number of papers as a graduate student, which will assist in developing their professional voice. While some students will turn their papers into professional manuscripts, graduate-level writing largely is a method of presenting information clearly and concisely. Therefore, this assignment was designed to help students become acclimated to the standard of writing used in our profession.
Students are asked to work individually to complete this handout. On the next page(s), students will be asked to demonstrate an understanding of APA style. This assignment provides an opportunity for students to apply APA format in academic writing. Part II is worth 15 points.
