Writing your paper: resources
This webpage helps you do the assignment comparing a popular (newspaper or magazine) account of research to the account of the same research in a scholarly journal article.
The tabs of this webpage track the stages of writing your paper. They provide resources that help you:
- Find a popular magazine or newspaper article (and see some examples),
- Use research databases to find scholarly primary articles.
- Write your paper using appropriate style and citations.
If you find you need assistance, contact the Psychology Librarian.
