Project description
you will read and report on an experimental study published in an academic Psychology journal. The study should be a research article and come from a professional (peer-reviewed) journal in Psychology, not from popular press magazines (e.g. Psychology Today) or newspapers. A sample list of appropriate journals is provided below; consult an Instructor or a librarian if you have any questions. The paper should be at least 5 pages long with normal line spacing and font sizes.
Your paper must consist of the following sections
(note that each corresponds to a section in a typical research paper)
(1) An introduction to the topic, stating the objectives of the experiment. What problem is under investigation? Why is it of importance or of interest?
(2) A description of the methodology used in the study. For example, describe and comment on independent and dependent variables or other measures, operational definitions, subjects, control issues, method of observation, etc.
(3) A summary of the results and conclusions of the study. What were the main findings of the paper? How do these results relate to the overall objective of the experiment? What do the authors conclude about their findings?
(4) Your subjective evaluation of the paper. In this concluding section, we want to hear your own opinion of the article. Why does this topic interest you? Does it change the way you think about the topic? Do you agree with the authors conclusions? What do you think would be the logical next step of the research?
You must provide detailed citation information of the article to your report so we can access it ourselves. If there is a URL address, please provide it. Any report that does not include this information will be returned without credit.
The two most important aspects of successfully completing this project are: (1) To carefully select a topic/appropriate article; and (2) To specifically follow the guidelines above.
The following are examples of peer-reviewed Psychology journals.
American Psychologist
American Journal of Psychiatry
Developmental Psychology
Journal of Abnormal Psychology
Journal of Applied Psychology
Journal of Comparative Psychology
Journal of Counseling Psychology
Journal of Personality and Social Psychology
