Psych 312. Social Paper: Topic and References Instructions For this assignment you will decide on your Research Paper topic and find references to be used in your paper. Before completing this assignment, thoroughly read these instructions so you know the guidelines for the paper and what will be expected of you. For this assignment, you will create and submit an APA-style reference page. The reference page must include 3 references with the following guidelines: Two references must be peer-reviewed journal articles. Articles from newspapers, magazines, and websites will not count. Also, information from unpublished dissertations contained in dissertation or thesis databases may not be used. Both of these journal articles must present original experimental research. This means that your articles must include a manipulated independent variable (IV) that attempts to show a cause-and-effect relationship with a measured dependent variable (DV; see pages 30â€“37 in your textbook for a review of the experimental method). One reference needs to be your course textbook At the bottom of the page, underneath your APA-style references, list your specific topic as well as the IV and DV for each article. This requirement is meant to allow you to check whether or not your articles truly represent experimental research and will help you decide on appropriate articles. Note that the instructor will not be able to look up each of your articles to verify whether or not they are experimental research (although this is sometimes obvious from the title). You are responsible for ensuring any article you submit fits the guidelines above. If not, you will need to do more research before your paper is due since you will not be able to complete the paper appropriately without experimental articles. The information can be organized as follows: Topic: Authors for article I (., Hernandez et al.)Â IV:Â DV: Authors for article IIÂ IV:Â DV: **You will be allowed to alter your references if necessary for the final Research Paper, but will need to ensure that any changes to your references continue to meet requirements for full credit on your paper. Your Research Paper: Topic and References is due by 11:59 . (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 3.
