I have attached the article as a PDF file. Read the article and summarize what you have learned from the article out loud. Write down what you said. This will be your main outline. Read the article again so that you can begin to figure out the most important details and what you want to present in the paper. Take notes. Write on the article to figure out what’s most important. You do not have to break down the article into sections for your paper. It should flow in paragraph form, but needs to include a summary of the introduction, procedure and discussion sections Do not use the names or the title of the article or any extraneous information. For APA format, all that is needed is the last name of the author(s) and year of publication which you are summarizing. There should be no mention of any names or any titles throughout any portion of the paper except the author(s) and year of the article you are summarizing. So, for example, if you are summarizing an article written by Patricia Brooks in 2017, within each paragraph, there should be a citation of (Brooks, 2017). Never use first names or the title of the article. You just need (Brooks, 2017). If you like, you can also use something like: According to Brooks (2017), research on ….has demonstrated…. Every paragraph where you are summarizing your article, the author(s) and year of publication need to be cited. It may seem repetitive, but it is necessary for APA style. YOU ONLY NEED TO CITE THE AUTHOR(S) ONCE PER PARAGRAPH. DO NOT CITE THEM AFTER EVERY SENTENCE. DO NOT ADD MORE THAN ONE CITATION PER PARAGRAPH UNLESS YOU ARE CITING BOTH THE ARTICLE AND THE DSM 5. No other aspect of APA format is required. Only the citations and reference page. The paper should be Times New Roman Font, size 12, with 1 inch margins. The paper should also be double spaced, but WITHOUT any extra spaces after a paragraph has ended. The next paragraph should be started by indenting and should follow directly underneath the prior paragraph while still double spacing. Do not include any extra spaces. Do not start the first page of your summary with your name and article name. That information should only be on the title page and should not be included in any aspect of your summary. When you are writing the paper, write it as if someone is going to be tested on the details of it. Be specific about studies, but again, do not use names of the authors cited in your article. Tell me what the article has taught or explained to you in regards to the research. Go through the article section by section, paragraph by paragraph and pick out the most important aspects of it so that you can tell it to me in your own words. Do not just summarize the beginning of the article. I must see a summary of the total article so it is your job to figure out what’s most important and how you can get that information across to the reader in 3 pages. No direct quotations can be used. Everything in your paper must be in your own words. Remember that plagiarism is considered using more than 3 words in a row from a source. Because you are getting this information from the article, even though you aren’t using any quotes, you need to cite the author(s)’ name(s). Because you are only using 1 source, you can put the citation for the author(s) at the end of every paragraph. Every paragraph needs a citation because none of what you are summarizing is your own work. You are paraphrasing someone else’s article and you must give them credit for what you learned from reading the article. So, for every paragraph, you can simply cite (Brooks, 2017). The period always goes after the citation, never before. So, don’t write a sentence like: The group taking the antidepressants showed a large improvement in their symptoms. (Brooks, 2017). It should be: The group taking the antidepressants showed a large improvement in their symptoms (Brooks, 2017).
