Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Concise Rules of APA Style offers essential writing and formatting standards for students, teachers, researchers, and clinicians in the social and behavioral sciences. This easy-to-use pocket guide, compiled from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, provides complete guidance on the rules of style that are critical for clear communication. Readers will learn how to avoid the grammatical errors most commonly reported by journal editors; how to choose the appropriate format for statistics, figures, and tables; how to credit sources and avoid charges of plagiarism; and how to construct a reference list through a wide variety of examples and sources. How does the Concise Rules differ from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association? The Publication Manual remains the best source for broad background information about scientific publishing. It provides guidance on designing research, identifying the parts of a scholarly article, understanding the process of journal publication, and submitting articles for publication. The Concise Rules, by comparison, targets only those rules writers need for choosing the best words and format for their articles. It offers a comprehensive list of essential writing standards in a convenient, easily retrievable format. In addition to guidance on grammar points that have challenged writers in the social sciences, the Concise Rules provides suggestions for reducing bias in language; reviews the mechanics of style for punctuation, spelling, capitalization, abbreviation, italicization, headings, and quotations; examines the preferred use of numbers as well as standards for metrication and statistics; providesguidance for the construction and formatting of tables, figures, and appendixes; and offers clear examples and models for referencing ideas and constructing error-free reference lists. Available in a light-weight, spiral-bound format, the Concise Rules will travel easily fro

Book News Annotation:

Where do you put the notes to a table? What is the difference between "g" and "g"? How do you cite a work discussed in a secondary source? Along with answering these and other questions that always seem to arise about six minutes before deadline, this reference also gives information on organizing ideas into an acceptable form and reducing bias in language. Compiled from the fifth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, this pocket guide includes information on punctuation (for those who confuse slashes with hyphens), capitalization (for those who confuse newtons and watts with Newton and Watt), spelling (for all of us), italicizing, and abbreviating, as well as advice on presenting statistics, tables, figures, quotations, citations, footnotes and appendices (it prefers "appendixes"). It also provides very helpful reference examples, including those from electronic and audiovisual media, a cross-reference to the publication manual and a checklist for manuscript submission.
