On Learning to Write Those **** References
Hartley, James
Psychology Teaching Review, v20 n2 p161-162 Win 2014
In this article, the author discusses how difficult it is for psychology college students to learn to write multiple disciplines of references. It is hard for students to understand why all details have to be written in the right order and the right type-style--depending upon which reference system is used. In this article, the author proposes that students should not be taught the minutiae of referencing in psychology until they reach a later stage: the second-year for example. A social media citation guide is included.
