Publisher Description

How to Write Psychology Research Reports and Essays, 7E is endorsed by the Australian Psychological Society and is a useful reference to the strict guidelines required by the APS and the APA (American Psychological Association) styles. A student who grasps these concepts and learns the conventions will have a sound basis for presenting research in a professional manner, and writing well-argued essays, so that the later step of writing for publication should be an easier one to take.
