The Psychologist's Companion: A Guide to Scientific Writing for Students and Researchers

by RobertJ.SternbergPhD (Author)

Synopsis

This book is a guide to scientific communication for students and researchers in psychology and related subjects. It is unique in that it combines under one cover practically everything the reader needs to know to communicate effectively in articles, books, grant proposals, prospectuses, talks, and lectures. The emphasis is on tips and practical advice that social scientists can actually use to improve communication. Robert Sternberg reviews rules for effective prose in a variety of formats, debunks common misconceptions about writing, highlights commonly misused words and gives instruction on the preparation of tables, figures, and bibliographies. For the third edition, the author has added entirely new chapters on 'How to Win Acceptances from Psychology Journals: Twenty-One Tips for Better Writing', 'Writing a Grant or Contract Proposal', 'Writing Book Proposals' and 'Writing a Lecture', and has expanded the chapter on 'References for the Psychology Paper'. He has also updated the volume's references. This book is an essential purchase for all psychologists and aspiring psychologists.
