General Information: Over the course of the quarter you will need to find and read two different articles related to a topic on psychology. Based on your review, you will need to write a summary and review paper and then present your findings to the class. For your review paper and presentation, you will need to find an article that is related to a topic on psychology you find interesting. Articles must be academic in nature (peer- reviewed). To find your article:
1. Go to the BC Library and Media Center website. 2. Click on ‘Databases’ under ‘Quick Links’ 3. Click on the database you wish to search. I recommend using EBSCOhost and/or
ProQuest. a. EBSCOhost – click the ‘Select/deselect all’ box then click ‘continue’ (this will
allow you to search all of the sub-databases). i. In the search box, enter the topic you are interested in (i.e. role of
emotions in marketing). Be sure to check the boxes for ‘Full Text’ and ‘Peer Reviewed’ then click ‘search.’
b. ProQuest – In the search box, enter the topic you are interested in (i.e. role of emotions in marketing). Be sure to check the boxes for ‘Full Text,’ ‘Peer Reviewed,’ and ‘Scholarly Journals’ then click ‘search.’
4. Find an article that is of interest to you and then read it. Article Review: 100 Points Total The write-up should be:
1 FULL page, double-spaced, & 12 point font,
Include your name, date, and class name in the top right corner.
The 1st½ of the paper is a summary of the article (what did you read?).
The 2nd½ should be written from your own ‘voice’ connecting the article to your own experience (i.e. why did you choose the article and what did you learn from the article?).
