Article, summary and suggested heading
I found this recently published article on behavioural automaticity: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/08870446.2018.1436176?journalCode=gpsh20. The objective of the study was to test whether self-control might facilitate the formation of adaptive habits (behavioural automaticity) and therefore enhance health behaviour through an indirect effect. Participants completed questionnaires assessing trait self-control and behavioural automaticity as predictors (1st session) and actual physical activity behaviour (after one week) as the dependant variable (2nd session). The results demonstrated that the predictive power of self-control was stronger for participants with high behavioural automaticity compared with participants with no behavioural automaticity. Moreover, automaticity mediated the relationship between self-control and behaviour.
I hope this helps as a start for your book chapter! Since the book chapter has a notion of improving wellbeing - you might want to consider a heading such as 'Positive Aspects of Behavioural Automaticity' and include the above article within that.
Recent DOI's APA style
Based on http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2017/03/doi-display-guidelines-update-march-2017.html, it is better to change the way of referencing the DOI's references.
- The volume should be erased and the number of volumes should be in italic.
- Instead of doi:, http://doi.org/ should be used.
- The name of the pubisher also should be in italic.
From reading this article it is clear that you have done a lot of research and have a lot of information on this topic. However, some of your paragraphs are a bit long. This makes it slightly hard to read and take in information. This is a website that gives suggestions on paragraph lengths: https://www.dailywritingtips.com/how-long-should-a-paragraph-be/. Although, this isn't an academic piece of work it may give you some ideas. If you are struggling to identify where you should end a paragraph and start a new one. The university has an essay writing guide that gives more detail on the structure of a paragraph. http://www.canberra.edu.au/library/attachments/pdf/Writing-an-essay.pdf I also think that having a few more images and interactive features would make the page more interesting. Overall, you have done so well. I look forward to reading this finished product. TaylorMal (discuss • contribs) 23:41, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Just letting you know I did some minor edits on your page including un-capitalising the headings and sub-headings (you only need the first letter of the first word to be capitalised for wikiversity), I got rid of the http:// links and added the link into the explanation of what is is.
So for example you had:
I made it like this (below), with the link just in the words, so if you go in and see you can just click on those words and it will take you to the page.
Behavioural automaticity (Book chapter 2018)
I did the same thing with the external links that you have.
Also, as others have suggested you need to make sure your referencing follows APA 6th edition guidelines: https://canberra.libguides.com/referencing/apa
I hope you like the changes I have made!
Hi, I have there is no referencing for your image. referencing should be: Figure 1. _____
Hi, I suggest you should use some subheading in your chapter as it will make a flow to the chapter and create ease for the reader. Best of luck --(UTC)--Reet josan (discuss • contribs) 03:30, 21 October 2018 (UTC)'Reet josan
