Abstract

If you spot any errors related to APA format in here, please let Paul Rose (Department of

Psychology, SIUE) know. When in doubt, check the sixth edition APA manual rather than

relying on this template. (I prefer only one space after a period, but two spaces are suggested by

the sixth-edition APA manual at the top of page 88.) An abstract is a single paragraph, without

indentation, that summarizes the key points of the manuscript in 150 to 250 words. For simpler

student papers in Paul Rose’s classes, a somewhat shorter abstract is fine (as is only one space

after each period). The purpose of the abstract is to provide the reader with a brief overview of

the paper. Some credit where it’s due: This template is a very highly modified version of a

template that I downloaded from some unknown author’s web site at Northcentral University in

Prescott, AZ many years ago.

The Relationship between Personal and Work Profile, Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors

and Depressive Symptoms among Selected Filipino Graduate Students

Here begins the body of your paper and your Introduction section. In the introduction

section you should argue about why your study is relevant. Why is it socially, institutionally and

personally relevant? This should take a paragraph of the section.

Next, discuss how your study is theoretically relevant. It is here that you provide a

synthesis of the literature, bringing together the literature sources you have collected and

identifying the data gap. This should take around 3 to 5 paragraphs. Make sure you make use of

the sources in the literature map.

Discuss the research objective. For IMRAD format we only say the general statement of

the problem. This study sought to test the relationship among personal and work profile, healthy

lifestyle behaviors and depressive symptoms among selected Filipino graduate students.

Then discuss the theoretical and conceptual framework. Make sure you cite all the

information that is not originally yours in this introductory section.

Methodology

Research Design

This is a quantitative non-experimental descriptive correlational research. Describe your

design. Find an article that describes the design and include here. And then cite. Justify why this

is the best design for your study.

Research Instrument

There are three instruments that were used in this study: (1) profile questionnaire; (2)

Health Related Lifestyle Questionnaire, and; (3) Zung’s Self-Assessment Depression Scale.

Personal and Work Questionnaire. Describe the instruments. How many items? What

are the items like? What are the nature of the questions? Cite your sources.

Health Related Lifestyle Questionnaire. Describe the instruments. Who made it? How

many items? What are the items like? What are the nature of the questions? Cite your sources.

Zung’s Self-Assessment Depression Scale. Describe the instruments. Who made it? How

Data Gathering Procedure

How did you secure administrative clearance? How did you orient participants and obtain

informed consent? How did you recruit participants? How is data collected from each

instrument?

Data Analysis Procedures

This study made use of frequency, percentage, mean, spearman rho and kruskall wallis.

Statistical computations where done using JASP software.

Discussion

Conclusion

First, place your personal insights about why your findings became the way they are.

Why was the relationship significant/insignificant?

Next, cite the studies that are similar to your research. And then cite those that are

dissimilar? You might need to get more literature especially if there was no significant

difference.

Did your findings demonstrate what your theoretical framework was assuming? How do

you say so?

Limitations. What things in the study do you think can you do better? What were the

pitfalls, uncontrolled extraneous variables, design and sampling flaws in your study?

Recommendations. What do you recommend in relation to practice and future research?
