This book offers readers essential guidance on creating figures that effectively present their findings. Figure examples have been updated to reflect the reporting standards and graphics presentation outlined in the sixth edition of the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association. Included in this revised edition are tips and tricks for designing figures as well as numerous examples of figures that accompany fictional studies. Chapters cover figures commonly used in psychology and other behavioural science journals, such as bar graphs, line graphs, plots, charts, and photographs. Quick-reference checklists for general and specific types of figures summarize important points to help readers save time in deciding on the best way to present figures. ( Back of Book).

When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today’s students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way. A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations—also known as “Turabian”—remains one of the most popular books for writers because of its timeless focus on achieving these goals. This new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. While previous editions incorporated digital forms of research and writing, this edition goes even further to build information literacy, recognizing that most students will be doing their work largely or entirely online and on screens. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission. The ninth edition is fully aligned with the recently released Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, as well as with the latest edition of The Craft of Research. Teachers and users of the previous editions will recognize the familiar three-part structure. Part 1 covers every step of the research and writing process, including drafting and revising. Part 2 offers a comprehensive guide to Chicago’s two methods of source citation: notes-bibliography and author-date. Part 3 gets into matters of editorial style and the correct way to present quotations and visual material. A Manual for Writers also covers an issue familiar to writers of all levels: how to conquer the fear of tackling a major writing project. Through eight decades and millions of copies, A Manual for Writers has helped generations shape their ideas into compelling research papers. This new edition will continue to be the gold standard for college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.

With more than three-quarters of a million copies sold since its first publication, The Craft of Research has helped generations of researchers at every level—from first-year undergraduates to advanced graduate students to research reporters in business and government—learn how to conduct effective and meaningful research. Conceived by seasoned researchers and educators Wayne C. Booth, Gregory G. Colomb, and Joseph M. Williams, this fundamental work explains how to find and evaluate sources, anticipate and respond to reader reservations, and integrate these pieces into an argument that stands up to reader critique. The fourth edition has been thoroughly but respectfully revised by Joseph Bizup and William T. FitzGerald. It retains the original five-part structure, as well as the sound advice of earlier editions, but reflects the way research and writing are taught and practiced today. Its chapters on finding and engaging sources now incorporate recent developments in library and Internet research, emphasizing new techniques made possible by online databases and search engines. Bizup and FitzGerald provide fresh examples and standardized terminology to clarify concepts like argument, warrant, and problem. Following the same guiding principle as earlier editions—that the skills of doing and reporting research are not just for elite students but for everyone—this new edition retains the accessible voice and direct approach that have made The Craft of Research a leader in the field of research reference. With updated examples and information on evaluation and using contemporary sources, this beloved classic is ready for the next generation of researchers.

Simone Sporer-Fellner untersucht in dieser Studie den Einfluss von unterschiedlich klassifizierten Entscheidungssituationen auf mentale Beanspruchung und Entscheidungsverhalten von Piloten während des Landeanflugs. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass die Entscheidungsfindung an sich als auch die sich daraus ergebenden Konsequenzen die mentale Beanspruchung beeinflusst. Analysen des Entscheidungsverhaltens weisen darauf hin, dass die kognitive Ebene der Entscheidungssituation besonders von Bedeutung ist hinsichtlich der Anzahl der Kriterien, die zur Entscheidungsfindung herangezogen werden, sowie der Antizipation von Entscheidungskonsequenzen auf den weiteren Flugverlauf.
