Guides for Writing Reports and Essays in PsychologyThe writing guides provide useful information on all aspects of writing Theoretical Articles (essays) and Reports in psychology. Two of the guides deal with the purpose and structure of Theoretical Articles (essays) and Psychological Reports.

The other three are general guides that apply to all writing in psychology, covering general writing rules and common mistakes, appropriate sources of information for essays or reports, and the American Psychological Association referencing rules. Finding Extra Sources / References Using PsycINFOTo find extra sources for your essay or report we recommend that you use the PsycINFO database.
