Beth M. Schwartz received her PhD in cognitive psychology from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1991. She is now the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost at Heidelberg University where she serves as the chief academic officer. Prior to that time, she was on the faculty at Randolph College (formerly Randolph-Macon Woman’s College) where she was the Thoresen Professor of Psychology, Department Chair, and Assistant Dean of the College. Dr. Schwartz’s early work focused on factors that influence the accuracy of child witnesses, in particular how changes in the legal system can create a more age-appropriate interview for young children. Her research focuses on the scholarship of teaching and learning, examining pedagogical changes that can lead to more effective teaching and learning, and investigating the influence of honor systems on academic integrity. Over the years, she provided undergraduate students with opportunities for research experience, involved students in her research program, and advised students when conducting their own investigations. As a result, many students have authored published work, presented at national conferences, and have obtained doctorate degrees. Dr. Schwartz worked with over 1,000 students at Randolph College. She has over 100 professional presentations at conferences and is the author, co-author, and co-editor of over 20 books, book chapters, and professional articles in scholarly peer-reviewed journals. Her work has appeared in journals such as Journal of Higher Education, Law and Human Behavior, Ethics and Behavior, and Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
Dr. Schwartz was the founder of the Faculty Development Center at Randolph, serving as Faculty Development Coordinator from 2000 to 2007 on her campus, providing faculty with programming focused on refining teaching to become most effective in the classroom. She is co-author of An EasyGuide to APA Style (2015, with Eric Landrum and Regan Gurung), Optimizing Teaching and Learning: Catalyzing Pedagogical Research (2009, with Regan Gurung), co-editor of Evidenced-Based Teaching in Higher Education (2012, with Regan Gurung), and co-editor of Child Abuse: A Global View (2001, with Michelle McCauley and Michele Epstein). She is a member of the American Psychological Association, a Fellow of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (Division 2 of APA), and a member of the Association for Psychological Science. In addition, she served Division 2 of the American Psychological Association, as the first Associate Director for Programming of Regional Conferences, and most recently as the Vice President of Recognitions and Awards. At Randolph College, she taught Introduction to Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Research Methods, Forensic Psychology, and Sensation and Perception, and a Senior Research Capstone Course. Dr. Schwartz is an award-winning teacher, earning the 2001 Randolph College Gillie A. Larew Award for Outstanding Teaching as well as the 2006 Outstanding Teaching and Mentoring Award (from AP-LS), and most recently receiving the 2013 Randolph College Katherine Graves Davidson Award for Excellence in Scholarship.
R. Eric Landrum is a professor of psychology at Boise State University, receiving his PhD in cognitive psychology from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale.

He has worked with more than 300 undergraduate research assistants and taught more than 14,000 students in 23 years at Boise State.

During the October 2014 Educational Leadership Conference in Washington, DC, Eric was presented with a Presidential Citation from then APA President Nadine Kaslow for his outstanding contributions to the teaching of psychology.

He is a member of the American Psychological Association, a fellow in APA’s Division Two (Society for the Teaching of Psychology or STP), served as STP secretary (2009–2011), and served as the 2014 STP president. He will serve as the 2015–2016 president of the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association.
Throughout the book the authors have made good use of tables and other visual stimuli (where appropriate) to make it easier to understand what the APA format should look like. The text is on the whole clearly written and easy to read. The book is never going to provide the depth required for a postgraduate or professional writer but it should be a great resource for undergraduate students. This is one of the best 'summaries' of APA style that I have seen. It will indeed be a book that I will recommend to my own undergraduate students. --Cathrine V. Jansson-Boyd, Department of Psychology, Anglia Ruskin University, United Kingdom
This book is written in a conversational style which provides a nice relief from consulting the rather dry text of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association . The aim of the book is essentially to simplify or demystify some of the complexities of writing using APA style and format. It does this particularly well by providing precise examples of common mistakes and how these can be avoided. I particularly like the fact that, as well as describing correct APA style and format, the book also contains screenshots of sample papers, which provide quick visual guides on correct formatting, referencing and writing style. --Tom Merrill
