Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
You may choose a topic in social psychology that you find interesting and would like to research. Your paper must be based on a minimum of five empirical research articles published in scientific journals. The paper should be 5-7 pages of written text, along with a title page, and a list of references. The paper is to be typed, double spaced, in 12-point font with one-inch margins. While you may start with a fairly broad topic, you should narrow your focus fairly quickly as a wealth of information exists in most areas researched by social psychologists. Finally, what research related ideas come to
mind? Conclude your paper in a research proposal fashion by detailing at least two specific research hypotheses and how you would go about testing those hypotheses. Please use APA writing style, especially when referencing your sources (the paper is a literature review, so it is like the introduction section of an APA style paper). Spelling and grammar do count, so please proofread your paper. This paper is worth 50 points and is due August 5, 2022. You are encouraged to turn this paper in early.
