Some advise
• Spend some time searching for journal articles on the Library Gateway
• Read the journal articles
• Include relevant theories when you write your essay
• Include evaluation by considering strengths and limitations of studies and measures used
• Compare and contrast the studies
When writing about studies include:
• Background
• Sample size, design and measures
• Results
• Evaluation
Show wider reading:
• All of your claims/points/facts/arguments need to be backed-up with high quality evidence
• Write fluently in an academic style with an appropriate structure (e.g. introduction, good use of paragraphing / signposting, conclusion etc.) and accurate grammar and spelling
• Wherever possible, use a primary source rather than a secondary one
• Show that you have read something yourself, rather than relying on someone else’s interpretation
• Be as up-to-date as possible
• Older papers are not automatically invalid, but there may be more recent evidence to talk about
• Show that you can read and understand research, and then relay this in a clear and articulate way for your audience to understand
• Your critical points need to be fully-expanded and detailed, using other research if possible.
• Only use academic textbooks – these should be used for the background to the topic. Original research articles from peer-reviewed journals should be used for supporting evidence – preferably recent articles
• Don’t use websites such as Simply Psychology and Verywellmind
Synthesizing evidence
• Try to make a collective argument using a bank of papers
