Project Steps STEP 1: Find a few scientific articles on a topic of interest. This can be done using the tools discussed in class (e.g., Cognitive Daily, Google Scholar, Citeseer, Social Science Citation Index, PsychInfo). Keyword searching can be used to narrow down a topic. STEP 2: Pick the one or two articles that are most interesting to you and find articles related to those articles by using citation search, as discussed in class. Related articles will cite similar papers. Focus on getting the most recent articles you can find on the which cite the article you found in Step 1 or cite the articles cited by the article you found in Step 1. STEP 3: Read the 5 or 6 articles that you have gathered. At this point, you should be ready to summarize these articles into a short literature review section for the paper. STEP 4: Identify a hole in the research, as you see it, and propose an extension . What else needs to be done? How can the methodology be applied to a related area? If you are stuck, look at the final sections of the paper to see what the author suggests as possible extensions. STEP 5: Write the paper following the guidelines. The main sections are: Introduction, Background, Proposed Experiments, Expected Results, References in APA Format. You are not to collect data, but propose the experiment that you would like to conduct, if funded. You can prepare examples of experimental material. STEP 6: Prepare a 10-15 minute presentation for class .
