american psychological association apa style of writing.
You will be required to submit an 8-10 page term paper using the American Psychological Association (APA) style of writing. You can obtain the specifics using the APA book titled The Manual (6th ed) or you can go to the following link (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/) to get the specifics about writing in the APA style. There is a sample paper on the website as well. Once you have a draft you can email it to me to review and I will give you feedback to help you make it as perfect as possible. Here are some of the specifics for the paper. The paper should have 1 inch margins, double spaced, use Times New Roman 12 pt font, include a title page, abstract, and reference page. The title page, abstract, and reference page do not count toward the 8-10 pages. YOU will choose your title for the paper. You can write about anything that is in the textbook, however you cannot cite the textbook. If you prefer something that is not you are more than welcome to write about it as long as it can be connected to the Developmental Psychology. If you are doubtful about your topic, simply email me. You are required to use a minimum of 5 scholarly journals for this term paper. The Rowan library is a valuable resource to locate these resources and I HIGHLY suggested you pay them a visit! You will also find the online library resource Ebsco Host very helpful, but you need to have a Rowan library card and requires you to visit the library to get it. The library will also be able to help you use the online library if you have questions. The librarian is also a valuable asset to help you do research. The five references is a minimum, so if you use ten sources you should have ten references listed in your reference page. Please review the APA requirements so you can be familiar with what needs to be in your paper. Do not forget your in-text citation, this is a common oversight by many students.
