Writing Project: Ratey (2008) Response and Study Review (Summary)

Step 2: Researching & Creating Your References Page

a?Search for studies.
a ¦You need to focus on three studies for this project. The studies you focus on do not need to be about the same specific topic; however, you will need to connect them in your introduction and conclusion of your paper. For example, you could focus on three studies addressing mental illness and exercise (broad connection) or you could find three specific studies all one type of mental illness and depression. You could also find three studies focused on exercise and children (very broad) or three specific studies on exercise and ADHD. You might also find three studies on ADHD and childrena but they might speak to other areas of studies rather than exercise, such as nutrition. Email me if you would like to me to review and comment on your focus.

a  Recommended Research Approach
a  Explore Health,Mental Health,Research,or other related sections of news sources (such as NPR) and then tracing the content of an article back to an original study.
a  For example, this is a link to the Health page of the NPR site.
a  Go to the Science Daily site, the Medical News site, or other similar reputable site and locate current studies that relate to Rateys (2008) text. Then, use key information (last name + year + topic) and search with Google/Bing to see if /how the study reached the broader public.
a  For example, if you go to the site Medical News Today and put Brain AND exercisein the search box, you will be able to access a list of related articles.
a   Go to the M State Libraries electronic databases and research topics that interest you. Locate related article(s). Then, use key information (last name + year + topic) and search with Google/Bing to see if /how the study reached the broader public. Click here to access information regarding how to use the electronic database through M State.
a  Review this list of articles, which I have logged as I searched for current stories and listened to the news while reading Rateys (2008) book.
a?Select three studies.
a?Prepare to create your references page.
a ¦Review this page from the APA Style Blog.
a ¦Look at the sample references page in the Purdue OWL paper. (Scroll to the end of the paper.)
a  Note how the word References is centered at the top of the page, the page is evenly double-spaced, the entries are in alphabetical order, and you use a hanging indent.
a ¦Scan chapter 6 of your APA manual.
a  Scan, read, and annotate pages 180-192.
a ¦Scan chapter 7 of your APA manual, Reference Examples.
a  Also, check out this page of examples from Long Island University, the UNC tab, and the Capella flowchart.
a  The above sources provide you explanations and examples for reference entries.
a? Next, create your references page (the last page of your paper).
a ¦Use 12 pt. Times New Roman font.
a  Do not create your header yet. You will do that in a later step.
a ¦Create entries for each source and Rateys (2008) book.
a  Rateys (2008) Book
a  See section 18 on page 203 in the APA manual and page 184 (the second bullet above the heading Editors”) to address how to incorporate Hagerman.
a  articles from magazines, journals, and newspapers from the M State databases
a   I recommend using the Capella flowchart.
a  articles from sites sponsored by journals, magazines, and newspapers
a   I recommend page 200 of the APA manual (#8 & #11) and the Capella flowchart.
a  abstracts
a   See #16 on page 202 in the APA manual.
a  web site pages that are not sponsored by a newspaper, magazine, or journal
a  See the APA Style Blog post.
a  Also see #76 on page 215 of your APA manual (example of a blog post entry)

a ¦Content
a  Introduce your broad topic by summarizing what Ratey (2008) shared about the topic.
a  Discuss why you are interested in the topic.
a  Introduce and discuss the specific topics, which the studies address (sub-topics)a if your overall topic is really broad.
a  Introduce the four sources you are focusing on in your review (the three studies and Rateys (2008) book.
a  Begin each introduction with the writers (last names only), followed by the year in parentheses, followed by full title of the article (in quotation marks and using upper and lower case) and the publication (in italics and using upper and lower case).
a  See Table 6.1 on page 177 of the APA Manual for examples of how to list names with the publication year.
