Citing sources for a psychology course? You'll be using the APA styleguide, no doubt.

Certainly, I can provide you with an example of how to cite sources and summarize concepts and theories using the APA style. Here's an example:

Let's say you are summarizing the concept of classical conditioning in psychology and you want to cite two different sources. The first source is an article titled "Classical Conditioning and Pavlov's Experiment" from the Journal of Applied Psychology. The second source is a textbook named "Introduction to Psychology" written by John Smith.

Here is how you would cite these sources in APA style:

1. Journal Article:
Author's Last Name, Author's Initials. (Year). Title of the article. Title of the Journal, Volume(Issue), Page range. DOI or URL (if available).

Smith, J. A. (2019). Classical Conditioning and Pavlov's Experiment. Journal of Applied Psychology, 25(2), 123-145. doi:10.1234/56789

Note: If there is no DOI, provide the URL of the journal's homepage.

2. Textbook:
Author's Last Name, Author's Initials. (Year). Title of the book (Edition). Publisher.

Smith, J. A. (2020). Introduction to Psychology (6th ed.). Pearson.

Now, for summarizing the concept of classical conditioning, you can write a brief summary of the concept in your own words. Ensure that you include proper citations whenever you paraphrase or use specific information from the sources.

For example:
Classical conditioning, as explained by Smith (2019), is a type of learning where an organism associates a neutral stimulus with a biologically relevant stimulus to produce a specific response. This concept was first studied by Pavlov in his famous experiment with dogs, as described in Smith's article. According to Smith (2020), classical conditioning plays a significant role in shaping behavior and can be observed in various real-life situations.

Remember to use proper in-text citations when referring to specific concepts or theories mentioned in your summary. The in-text citation includes the author's last name and the year of publication.

I hope this example helps you with your project!
