This paper will be written using full 6th edition apa style, including cover pages, headings, abstract, references, etc.
You will produce a review of the important' literature on the topic you choose. The review will be comprehensive enough for you to review and describe a few studies pertinent to your topic, and to analyze the similarities, differences, and inconsistencies in the research findings. You must also synthesize those qualities into a cohesive argument about what is known (and not known) about the topic, and also to suggest future directions in order to better understand the topic you choose. This paper will be written using full 6th edition APA style, including cover pages, headings, abstract, references, etc. Please use 12-point font, and double-space the lines. Because concise writing is a goal of psychologists, there is no minimum length for the paper, but you do need to analyze and synthesize the literature for the topic adequately. In most cases, this will require at least 10 pages, and usually more. Please limit the length to 20 pages, including the front matter (title page, abstract) and back matter (references, appendicies, etc.). Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. Indicate organizational structure within your literature review by using headings and subheadings. Make sure that headings at the same level are written in parallel form (See the APA style guide for more details about this). Also, make sure that headings at the same level are consistently placed on the page (i.e., centered, flush left, indented, etc.). If you use underlining, italics, or boldface to indicate heading level, make sure you use it consistently and according to APA style. The final few paragraphs are a proposed study to better understand the topic and address potential weaknesses or omissions in the literature. You should include the following elements: A statement of what weakness or gap in the literature the research aims to address; a statement about the research design (e.g., experimental, correlational, one-way ANOVA, 2 × 2 factorial, etc.); descriptions of the methods; expected results; finally, a discussion of what the research will (hopefully) tell about the topic and how it will contribute to knowledge.
