Once you have chosen a topic locate at least three academic articles related to the topic you selected. There must be a minimum of three articles and those three must come from peer-reviewed journals. That means newspapers, Time magazine, Scientific America and other sources like these will not count for the three articles. You can use additional info from any source you like but you must include information from at least three peer-reviewed journals such as Science, Nature, Journal of Abnormal psych, Developmental psych, etc.
You can find journals in the PsycARTICLES and Pubmed databases located on the Madison College library website. Click on the database link listed on the library web page, then browse databases A – Z and look for PsycARTICLES/EBSCO or Pubmed. When you get on the database page simply type in your search topic (for example “Psychopaths”) and click on search. Several articles will come up for you to check out. If you have any trouble see the librarian for help.
As I said you can get references from newspapers (e.g., New York Times), popular magazines (e.g., Psychology Today, Newsweek, Time), book reviews from academic journals, or websites. Students will lose points however if there are not three sources from peer reviewed journal.
