Organization’s summary – The American Sociological Association and the Society for Personality and Social Psychology


This week’s main forum includes 4 steps:

1) Research two of the organizations below: one MUST be the ASA.
No specific author or webmaster is listed for the ASA site, so an example full reference citation is:

Name of Association/or whomever owns the copyright. (year of publication/copyright). Name of specific page viewed on site/or site name if the entire site was used. Retrieved on [insert date] from: [insert full url].


American Sociological Association. (2009). American Sociological Association Website. Retrieved on December 23, 2009 from

2) For the two organizations, write a summary of its purpose/function/mission and benefits and resources it offers to members and the general public (if public resources are available).

3) NOTE:  Use direct quotes from the websites sparingly, and use proper APA in-text citations and full references for ALL paraphrased and directly quoted material. (not citing your sources constitutes plagiarism and will void the assignment points and result in a course grade of “F” if more than one instance is detected).
