This assignment is intended to have you compare and contrast the writing style and potential uses of a popular press article versus a peer-reviewed primary research article that discusses a psychological phenomenon, written within the last 10 years. The articles need to address the same area of interest (for example, depression and gender, love and emotional expression, adolescence and cyberbullying, etc.), but do not have to necessarily be about the same exact experiment.
Your popular press report must come from one of the following:
-Psychology Today (Avoid Blogs if You Access Online)
-Time (Time Magazine)
Select an article from an appropriate scholarly journal. You will want to find articles which are research (data-driven) based and which use the experimental or correlational method. Article reviews or meta-analysis articles should be avoided. The articles must have the traditional sections associated with a research study (abstract, introduction (literature review), methods, results, discussion, references). That means no reviews of literature or other types of articles.
Example titles of appropriate journals include:
Journal of Applied Psychology
Journal of Asian American Psychology
Journal of Black Psychology
Journal of Abnormal Psychology
Journal of Counseling Psychology
Journal of Family Psychology
Journal of Latinx Psychology
Journal of Personality
Journal of Social Psychology
Journal of Personality and Social Psychology
Psychology and Aging
—For this paper you must:
1.Summarize the main points and evidence found within each resource in approximately 150-250 words per summary (NOTE: USE YOUR OWN WORDS, DO NOT PLAGIARIZE THE ARTICLES)
2. Describe using examples at least 3 ways that the theoretical approaches or article writing styles are different (note: mentioning participant pools is too simple, and if you notice that they are addressing completely different topics, your articles aren’t related enough)
3.Describe using examples at least 2 ways that the articles styles are similar in either goals, structure, or something similar to this
4.Describe situation where you think that you would benefit using a popular press article, and then describe situations where you would be better off using a peer-reviewed research article
5.Provide in-text citations and a reference page in APA format (including DOI number for the peer-reviewed article)
6.Attach the first page of each article (which has text) to the back of your paper
7.Write a paper that is coherent, with smooth transitions between topics (no bullet points or lists)
Notes for both articles:
Articles MUST be from the approved sources listed above
Articles MUST be full articles (avoid summary papers, literature reviews or meta-analyses, blurbs, or blogs)
Notes for the popular press articles:
Again, make sure that your article is NOT a blog
Articles MUST be less than 10 years old
Articles MUST be at least 3 pages long in order to ensure that you’re reading a full article from one of these sources
Notes for the peer-reviewed articles:
Articles MUST be less than 10 years old
Articles MUST be at least 8 pages long. This will ensure that you’re reading a full research article instead of a summary essay. The one exception to this rule is for neuroscience topics. Several well-written neuro articles are less than 8 pages long.
ANY article that has one of the issues listed above will result in points deduction. In other words, if you intentionally or unintentionally select an article that does not come from a correct source, is a blurb or blog, or doesn’t meet the page requirements, you will lose some points.
The written portion of the assignments (not the reference page and attachments) should be a maximum of four, typed, double-spaced, pages in length—do not mess with font size and margins to make your paper longer or shorter. You will not lose points for having a paper that is shorter than four pages, but if you are fulfilling all of the requirements, your paper will be at least two full pages.
Make sure that your paper is written as an expository essay. It needs to be coherent, with smooth transitions between topics, and it must be in essay form. You should not have different sections in your paper. There should also be no bullet points or other forms of separation in the paper.
