Research Paper (APA STYLE)
Research Paper Instructions
The Research Paper is the capstone assignment for this course and is to be a written representative of the research conducted on the psychophysiological aspects of an issue chosen from the textbook. Using the services of Liberty University’s Online Library, you will select and read at least 5 recent journal articles on the chosen issue. You will then summarize your findings in an 8–10-page paper, written in current APA style, and submitted through SafeAssign. This assignment is separated into 2 parts: the Title Page, Abstract, and References submission, and the completed Research Paper submission.
1. Title Page, Abstract, and References
It is important for you to use the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association as you format your paper. The Title Page is to reflect the formatting of the current APA manual with a running head and page number. The Abstract is to consist of pertinent information regarding the paper and must not exceed the number of words outlined by the current APA manual. The references must be journal articles that are found in the APA PsycNET database found on the research portal of Liberty University’s Online Library. This portal can be accessed via the web by all Liberty University students. The Title Page, Abstract, and References submission must reflect proper and current APA formatting.
The Title Page, Abstract, and References are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 3.
2. Research Paper
You will write an 8–10-page paper in current APA style—submitted through SafeAssign—summarizing an aspect of a selected psychophysiological topic from the textbook. The final paper must include the pages turned in for the first step with the corrections given from the instructor made, or the feedback given from the instructor followed. You are encouraged to use APA headings in the body of the paper. The headings outline the paper for the reader and are encouraged but not required. The 8–10 pages include the abstract, the body, and the conclusion. The title and references pages are not included in the total page number requirement.
