How do I find peer-reviewed articles for my psychology paper about depression.
Depression is a very broad topic, so I recommend narrowing the topic. What aspect of depression do you want to write about? Some examples are juvenile depression, treatment of depression, and diagnosis of depression. Once you've narrowed your topic, come up with a list of terms and synonyms to use when searching your library's databases. Begin your search with psychology databases like PsycARTICLES and PsycINFO. For this topic, you may also want to search health databases like Health & Wellness Resource Center and Ovid. If you need more information, you can also search general database such as Academic OneFile and Academic Search Premier. When searching the databases, make sure you refine your search to include only peer-reviewed articles.
How do I conduct a feminist critique of a book?
As you are reading the book, look for blatant examples of different behavioral and societal expectations that subjugate and oppress women. Also, look for underlying themes and language that support the suppression of women. Also, examine the female characters. Do women have a voice, or does a male voice speak for them? Does the book have female protagonists, or are women relegated to supporting character roles?
How do I write a paper for my class?
First, review the assignment requirements. Then, select a topic that meets the requirements. Next, read source materials and conduct research on your topic. It is often necessary to narrow or broaden your topic during the research phase. Take notes and record citations during your reading and research. The next step is writing an outline to help organize your paper. Then, write a draft paper. Review your draft to make sure the paper is well organized and that you have met the requirements of the assignment. Proof the paper for grammar and spelling errors. Once you are pleased with the paper, it is helpful to have someone else proof your paper for clarity and grammar before submitting the assignment.
