Guidelines for Research Project

For the completion of this research project, students will have the option of constructing a four-to-six-page (4-6 page) research paper. Each student will be required to:

Identify a particular topic (e.g., stress, eating disorders, motivation, generalized anxiety, intelligence, dissociative identity disorder, etc.) or person (e.g., Abraham Maslow, Sigmund Freud, Jean Piaget, Margaret Washburn, Kenneth Clark, etc.) of interest related specifically to the field of psychology.

Identify at least two (2) specific research studies (scholarly) that relate to your topic or person of interest, being sure to address findings that demonstrate beneficial or harmful outcomes relative to the method/s of data collection, ethical concerns, and/or theoretical positions.

Apply at least two (2) areas of diversity to your topic or person of interest within your paper. For instance, if you should choose a topic such as eating disorders, give examples of how a person’s age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, education, ability/disability, etc. might influence and/or contribute to this condition. If you should choose to study a person in psychology, give examples of how their contributions either affected or included people of a certain age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, education, ability/disability, etc.

Note: Information presented that is specific to research studies or areas of diversity may either be included in the general content of the paper or presented in its own separate section of the paper. In either case, please be sure to clearly identity information from both required areas.

All research projects will be due toward the end of the course session on the specific date noted in Blackboard (see Course Schedule). Any late projects (received any time after 11:59 p.m. on the given due date) will be deducted according to the syllabus.

Where should I start?

To Begin:

Select your topic. Since psychology is such a broad field of study, there is really no limit to what topic or person a student can explore. Bottom line, if it deals with humans/animals, human behavior, and/or mental processes, then it deals with psychology. You may also refer to the optional topics/persons list below.

Familiarize yourself with APA format. It is required that each student/group utilize 6th edition APA style to construct an insightful research paper that cites and references work that is not one’s own (copy and paste into your browser’s search box the following URL to see more on APA format—
