“All first-year students would benefit from this text when writing their first paper, poster and presentation, regardless of their writing background.” (Times Higher Education Supplement, 8 November 2012)
"This is an excellent book, which will prove valuable to many readers in different settings, not just students or educators. The parameters that govern a paper or presentation related to psychology are beautifully outlined here, and the guidelines offered could not be clearer." (Nursing Times.net, December 2012)
This book is a clear, comprehensive step-by-step guide that will be wonderfully useful for student writers at all stages of the psychology major. Beins and Beins have produced a wonderful handbook for students; I imagine this is a book that many of them will hold on to and refer to throughout their academic years.

This comprehensive book will be a resource that psychology students will keep for future reference. From organizing ideas to writing in APA style, from writing empirical reports to presenting posters, this helpful book guides students through the conventions of psychological writing.
-Beth Morling, University of Delaware
Effective Writing in Psychology strikes an effective, accessible balance between psychology students’ need to learn the technical aspects of scientific writing and the recognition that scientific writing need not be dull and lifeless. Barney and Agatha Beins care about students and about good writing; that care shows in this fine student manual.
