Research writing is one of the important activity before a student will graduate in the Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. Thus, there is a need to give the students information on how to write a research proposal. The objectives of this workshops were to provide information to the undergraduate students about the regulations and submission of the research proposal and to teach the students on the format and contents of the research proposal. Citation and referencing are the important aspects of research. The American Psychological Association (APA) referencing style is one of the many ways of citing published work. The students were provided information on how to cite and how to reference a work.
