I would look within your institution. The writing center at mine will review and provide feedback and they are great. The "ruler lady" in your graduate school office would be a great person to give feedback on the formatting. That person might even be able to give you some names of typists or editors (and maybe even information about each).
I just read on the APA style blog site (http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/) that they have just launched a data based called PsycTEST. From the blog post they state that the data base can be used to find information regarding testing tools as well as having access to some tools directly. I believe this would be a great place to look at for information.
I have this statement that I want to add in my paper, and in parentheses it has three authors and the year after each name. Does this mean that this statement is used in each of these author's articles?
Unless it is in quotes that exact statement is not in each of the three, but rather the concept is expressed in each of the three. If you pull from one source and reference back to the three without going to the original three articles represents a big no-no research wise, citing secondary sources. You should go to the original three works and read each of the three, which if you want that line makes sense to get the overall feel for each of them, and then use the concept and cite. Remember to paraphrase!
I would ask at the Graduate School office. I know at my university the grad school has a quite extensive dissertation manual which gives the details on formatting and arrangement of the dissertation. The grad school office may even have the manual online, ours does. Good luck!
In working through a Collaborative Research Project I have found the following very useful:Narrative Inquiry: Experience and Story in Qualitative Research by D. Jean Clandinin and F. Michael Connelly (2004)
Check with your program librarian. Many times the library has access to proquest available.
Can anyone recommend any good articles concerning the topic of "Strategies for Writing Productivity?" I am facilitating a session for second and third year Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) students and I want to find a piece that would encourage good discussion. It does not have to be entirely academic either.
I have had the pleasure to use two books to motivate and guide writing. Both are a humurous and quick read.
1 -- Bird by Bird by Ann Lamont
2 -- On Writing by Steven King
Hope this helps!
