The purpose of this research paper is to familiarize you with research literature in psychology through reading and summarizing one paper about an experimental research/descriptive research on a topic in psychology. You will summarize the different sections of the paper in your own words as much as possible. Don’t worry about tables and graphs. Make sure your first page includes your “Running head”, “Title” and your info (Name, last name, institution, etc.) and that it complies with the APA format. First page should be followed by your “Abstract” page (which is a summary of what you are about to report). You will site only your paper in your reference page, APA style. (I should see only ONE article sited). GCC online library databases, especially Psychinfo, Proquest Psychology Journals, Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection are excellent places to start. Check only “scholarly journals.” The paper itself (Not including the title page, abstract, and the references) should be no less than five pages. You would need to talk about the background of the topic (usually in the beginning of the research paper), the experimental design (if it applies), subjects, results, discussions and potential shortcoming of the study. In Your Own Words please. Upload the paper with the copy of the original article on Canvas under the assignment research paper. Here are a couple of links to familiarize yourself to APA format
