Social Psychology Literature Review..

  • Analyze at least two peer-reviewed papers in psychological research that incorporate quantitative and/or qualitative methods, comparing the research design, statistical tools and results (Psychology Program outcome 2)

In this project, you will write a literature review on a topic of interest within the scope of social psychology.

 You should begin working on Project 2 early in the course – coming up with ideas, starting to narrow down topics, and so forth. You may want to skim the textbook to help develop the idea.

The course instructor can help provide guidance in choosing a topic, finding appropriate articles, and understanding any difficult material.


In this module, select a topic for your project. The topic should be relevant in the field of social psychology.

The topic must be approved by the instructor. Be sure to submit the topic to the appropriate assignment dropbox.

The literature review should describe what is known by the scientific community about the topic you have selected. It should include a logical progression of ideas and well-organized paragraphs.

To write a literature review, you will be required to read articles in journals or from other professional sources.

You could read articles from the journals:

  • Journal of Personality and Social Psychology
  • Journal of Experimental Social Psychology

The paper must contain at least seven (7) journal articles or other professional sources.

The introduction sections of journal articles will give you ideas about what your introduction should look like.

The introductions to articles in journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, and the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology provide exemplars for how to write a high quality introduction.
