The Guide to Publishing in Psychology Journals is a complete guide to writing psychology articles for publication. It goes beyond the formal requirements to the tacit or unspoken knowledge that is key to writing effective articles and to gaining acceptance by quality journals. Thus, the information in this book is of a kind that cannot be found in publication manuals or formal guides to writing. The book emphasizes empirical articles, but also discusses theoretical articles and the role of theory in empirical articles, as well as literature-review articles. The editor and the authors of book chapters all have edited major journals in the field of psychology. The final chapter is a compilation of 50 tips taken from the individual chapters.
Reporting Research in Psychology provides practical guidance on understanding and implementing journal article reporting standards (JARS) and meta-analyses reporting standards (MARS). Described for the first time in the sixth edition of the Publication Manual, these standards were designed to make the reporting of results both comprehensive and uniform Reporting standards, now widely used in the behavioral, social, educational, and medical sciences, provide transparency to the research process and make the generalization of results across studies more precise. In this book, Harris Cooper includes carefully chosen examples from articles published in APA journals that illustrate how JARS and MARS can be incorporated into various types of research studies, with engaging and helpful commentaries on each item. This book fills an important gap in the literature and is essential reading for undergraduate students in research methods classes as well as graduate students and early career researchers.
âA Psychology Journal: Developmental Psychologyâ discusses both sides of sensitive social issues from prenatal care to euthanasia and the elderly to the legitimacy of the church. These issues affect all of us at one time or another be it being passed up for a job in favor of a senior citizen employee or deciding as a parent when too much civic engagement can be potentially harmful. Both sides of the pertinent issues will be discussed providing a more valid reader opinion on the subjects. The book does not attempt to influence the reader pertaining to subjects, yet is influential in its manner of providing a choice of which debate is right or wrong.
Folk psychology refers to our everyday practice of making sense of actions, both our own and those of others, in terms of reasons. This volume, which is a special issue of the Journal of Consciousness Studies, brings together new work by scholars from a range of disciplines (anthropology, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy) whose aim is to clarify, develop and challenge the claim that folk psychology may be importantly -- perhaps even constitutively -- related to narrative practices.
This book is part of a wider project by its editor, Daniel D. Hutto, Professor of Philosophical Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire, exploring this central issue of consciousness studies.
Mindfulness is the simple and powerful practice of training your attention. It's simple in that it's just about paying attention to what's happening here and now, and powerful because it can keep you from getting lost in thoughts about the future or past, which often generate more stress on top of the real pressures of everyday life.
While learning to live in the moment, the joyful mindfulness exercises, meditations, coloring pages, and habit-breakers in this beautifully designed and illustrated book will challenge your powers of observation, investigation, and cultivation while bringing new awareness to your senses, thoughts, and emotions.
I Am Here Now inspires readers to explore the world with greater curiosity and find moments of mindfulness in everyday life, while unleashing your creativity along the way.
Hysteria as a Weapon in Marital Conflicts of American birth and ancestry. Family history is negative so far as mental disease is concerned, but there seems to have been a decadence of stock as manifested in the steady dropping of her family in the social scale. She is one of two children, there being a brother, who, from all accounts, is a fairly industrious, but poverty-stricken farmer. Her early childhood was spent in a small village in Massachusetts. She received but little education, largely because she had no desire to study and no aptitude for learning, although she is by no means feeble-minded. The menstrual periods started at fourteen, and have been without any noteworthy accompanying phenomena ever since. History is negative so far as other diseases are concerned. She worked as a domestic and in factories until she was married for the first time at the age of twenty. She had no children by this marriage. It is stated on good authority that she took preventive measures against conception and if pregnant induced abortion by drugs and mechanical measures. At the end of eight years there was a divorce. Just which one of the partners was at fault is impossible to state, but that there was more than mere incompatibility is evident by the reticence of all concerned. Shortly afterward, she married her present husband with whom she has lived for about nine years. He is a steady drinker, but is a good workman, has never been discharged, and, apparently, his drinking habits do not interfere with the main tenor of his life. He lives with the patient in a small house of which they occupy two garret rooms, mcagcrly furnished, though without evidence of dire poverty. From her fifteenth year the patient has been subject to fainting spells. By all accounts they come on usually after quarrels, disagreements or disappointments. They are not accompanied by blanching, b (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
