Psychology Paper Writing Guide

01 Aug 2017

Writing your essay is much easier to tackle if you divide the writing up into sections. Create headers and sub-headers, and divide up the word count for each section so you know what you're aiming for.

The sections of a psychology paper will differ according to the type of psychology paper being written: 

Psychology essay

A psychology essay will contain paragraphs that express a summary, analysis, or review of a book, article, or topic. A psychology essay begins with an introduction consisting of a paragraph that will clearly detail what is coming in the rest of the project and introduces the thesis statement. A thesis statement is a specific position on an issue or topic of study and consists of a provable opinion. In a psychology essay, the thesis statement must be related to and supported by the previously gathered evidence.

Then you need to write the main body of your essay, making sure that all your points are referenced to show the evidence and support for each of your arguments.

Complete your essay with a conclusion, neatly summarising your essay. 

Psychology Research Proposal

In a research proposal, the writer will use a standard outline and explain how the future research is attempting to discover its truth. This outline includes an introduction in which the writer clearly describes the problem to be investigated. A literature review follows the introduction and is a summary and review of the literature relevant to the subject matter. 

The research question or hypothesis, research methods, data analysis and statistics are next in order and are very specific and detailed processes. The research question/hypothesis describes in a formulaic manner the detailed subject matter under investigation. Both have a format based upon what specific type of research is intended. The methods section covers the participants to be included in the research, how the subject matter will be researched, such as what assessment instruments or techniques might be used, and the data or information will be analysed. The results section includes what information was found.

Finally, the discussion section will include ramifications of the results, what errors might be included in this research design and what research could be done next on this topic. The reference section includes all literature that was mentioned in this research proposal or report.
