An essential companion for undergraduate-level psychology students that demystifies the conventions of writing for psychology

How to Write Psychology Research Reports and Assignments provides all the information students will need to write psychology assignments at the undergraduate level. It is aimed at first- and second-year students, although it may also be useful for more senior students tackling unfamiliar assignment types.

Students will feel set up for success with easy access to many examples, summaries, and resources, which have been carefully written to provide both more detail and explanation than a typical department guide. A useful companion guide for any undergraduate psychology course.

Key features
  • A glossary of psychology-related words provides easy access to definitions for terms that are on the tip of students' tongues.
  • An index helps students locate specific information about the aspects of assignments they are finding challenging.
  • Flowcharts of the processes involved in writing a research report and an essay will help students plan their work.
  • Examples of recent material from Australian and New Zealand academics bring the topics to life and help to describe good examples of opening sentences, summaries of prior research, citation and referencing.
  • Good and poor research report samples are available online for students to see more examples of the concepts in practice.
  • APA 7th edition conventions are used throughout, setting students up with a good foundation for future development that involves presentations and publications.
  • Spiral-bound, easy-to-use format with chapter tabs in the print edition makes the text easy to navigate and use as a reference tool while writing assignments.
New to this edition
  • Further refinements and discussion of APA 7th ed. in explanations and examples throughout the text.
  • Increased emphasis on different assignment types (in line with APA 7th ed.), and more discussion of different types of writing e.g. reviews, research proposals, presentations, and posters.
  • All examples have been reviewed, and recent material from Australian and New Zealand academics is used in many examples.
  • Additional material and resources for third- and fourth-year students, including some examples of more sophisticated tables and figures.
