Running head: RESEARCH METHODS IN BIOPSYCHOLOGY 1 Note: The running head is an abbreviated title of the paper. The running head is located at the

 

top of pages of a manuscript or published article to identify the article for readers. The running

 

head should be a maximum of 50 characters, counting letters, punctuation, and spaces between

 

words. The words "Running head" is on the cover page but not on the rest of the document. The

 

running head title is all CAPS. Page 1 begins on the cover page. The entire document should be

 

double-spaced, have 1" margins on all sides, and use 12 pt. Times New Roman font.

 

The italicized information in this paper is informational. After reading the information, please

 

delete it, and use the paper as a template for your own paper. Edit the black writing with your

APA (American Psychological Association) Style is most commonly used to cite sources

 

within the social sciences. APA Style is used when writing papers in the psychology programs

 

offered at Capella University. This document serves as an APA Style template for learners to use

 

when writing their own papers, as well as a resource containing valuable information that can

 

be used when writing academic papers. For more information on APA Style, learners can refer to

 

the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (American Psychological

 

Association, 2010a).

 

The author demonstrates in the first section of this paper, how an introduction effectively

 

introduces the reader to the topic of the paper. In APA Style, an introduction never gets a

 

heading. For example, this section did not begin with a heading titled "introduction", similar to

 

the following section, which is titled "writing an effective introduction". The following section

 

will explain in greater detail a model that can be used to effectively write an introduction in an

 

academic paper. The remaining sections of the paper will continue to address APA Style and

 

effective writing concepts including section headings, organizing information, the MEAL plan,

 

the conclusion, and the reference list.

 

An effective introduction often consists of four main components including: (a) the

 

position statement, thesis, or hypothesis, which describes the author's main position; (b) the

 

purpose, which outlines the objective of the paper; (c) the background, which is general

 

information that is needed to understand the content of the paper; and (d) the approach, which is

 

the process or methodology the author uses to achieve the purpose of the paper. This information

 

will help readers understand what will be discussed in the paper. It can also serve as a tool to

 

grab the reader's attention. Authors may choose to briefly reference sources that will be RESEARCH METHODS IN BIOPSYCHOLOGY 3 identified later on in the paper as in this example (American Psychological Association, 2010a;

 

American Psychological Association, 2010b; Walker, 2008).

 

In an introduction, the writer will often present something of interest to capture the

 

reader's attention and introduce the issue. Adding an obvious statement of purpose helps the

 

reader know what to expect, while helping the writer to focus and stay on task. For example, this

 

paper will address several components necessary to effectively write an academic paper

 

including (a) how to write an introduction, (b) how to write effective paragraphs using the

 

MEAL plan, and (c) how to properly use APA style.

 

Article Analysis

 

Using section headings can be an effective method of organizing an academic paper. The

 

section headings should not be confused with the "running head", which is a different concept

 

described in the cover page of this document. Section headings are not required according to

 

APA Style, however, they can significantly improve the quality of a paper. This is accomplished

 

because section headings help both the reader and the author as will soon be discussed.

 

Research Method

 

The heading style recommended by APA consists of five levels (American Psychological

 

Association, 2010a, p. 62). This document contains two levels to demonstrate how headings are

 

structured according to APA Style. Immediately before the previous paragraph, a Level 1 Section

 

Heading was used. That section heading describes how a Level 1 Heading should be written,

 

which is centered, bold, and using upper and lowercase letters. For another example, see the

 

section heading "Writing an Effective Introduction" on page 3 of this document. The heading is

 

centered, bold, and uses upper and lowercase letters (compared to all uppercase in the running

 

head at the top of each page). If used properly, section headings can significantly contribute to RESEARCH METHODS IN BIOPSYCHOLOGY 4 the quality of a paper by helping the reader who wants to understand the information in the

 

document, and the author who desires to effectively describe the information in the document.

 

Key Variables

 

Section headings serve multiple purposes including (a) helping the reader understand

 

what is being addressed in each section, (b) readers may be more likely to maintain an interest in

 

the paper, and (c) they can help readers choose what they want to read. For example, if the

 

reader of this document wants to learn more about writing an effective introduction, the previous

 

section heading clearly states that is where information can be found. When subtopics are

 

needed to explain concepts in greater detail, different levels of headings are used according to

 

APA Style.

 

Description of How the Hypothesis was, or was not Supported

 

Section headings do not only help the reader, they help the author organize the document

 

during the writing process. Section headings can be used to arrange topics in a logical order,

 

and they can help an author manage the length of the paper. In addition to an effective

 

introduction and the use of section headings, each paragraph of an academic paper can be

 

written in a manner that helps the reader stay engaged. Capella University promotes the use of

 

the MEAL plan to serve this purpose.

 

Determination and Explanation of Safe and Ethical Study

 

Section headings do not only help the reader, they help the author organize the document

 

during the writing process. Section headings can be used to arrange topics in a logical order,

 

and they can help an author manage the length of the paper. RESEARCH METHODS IN BIOPSYCHOLOGY 5 Summary and Conclusion

 

A summary and conclusion section, which can also be the discussion section of an APA Style paper, is the final opportunity for the author to make a lasting impression on the reader. The author can begin by restating opinions or positions, and summarizing the most important points that have been presented in the paper. For example, this paper was written to demonstrate to readers how to effectively use APA Style when writing academic papers. Various components of an APA Style paper that were discussed or displayed in the form of examples include a running head, title page, introduction section, levels of section headings and their use, in­text citations, the MEAL plan, a conclusion, and the reference list.
