Obeying the standards of the APA publication manual
A series of lectures dealt with how to obey the standards of the APA publication manual:
The first lecture explores the questions: Why publishing? Why a rule system? before turning to the structure of a manuscript, proper language use and some mechanics of style (i.e., the use of period (.), comma, abreviations, parentheses, etc.).
The second lecture shows how to display results in figures and tables and provides some practical hints to help with writing manuscripts.
The third lecture demonstrates why, when and how to use references.
The fourth lecture gives practical hints for writing manuscripts and term papers, gives and overview how the publication process works and discusses ethical issues with publication (authorship, consent, plagiarism).
