The Making Sense series offers clear, concise guides to research and writing for students at all levels of undergraduate study. Designed especially for students in psychology, this volume outlines general principles of style, grammar, and punctuation while also covering issues such as how to conduct academic research in psychology, how to write essays and short assignments, how to document sources, and how to give an oral presentation.

Revisions to the second edition of Making Sense in Psychology include a chapter re-ordering to help the book better match the writing process. It includes comprehensive coverage of new developments in technology-based research and writing, discussing information managers, databases, and outlining software. The APA section has been revised to be completely up to date.
