Classic Social Psychology Articles
From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
There are many articles that can be considered classics in social psychology. This is evidenced by many readers over the years that include classic articles as well as the readers themselves becoming classic. Below is a subset of many articles that could be considered classics. At this time, they are admittedly, subjectively selected to be included. Future elaborations may included more objective determinants of what should be included in the list.
The summaries are not intended to be abstracts of the article. Rather they are intended to briefly convey the essence of the article (e.g., in 10 words or less)and a brief statement about why the article is a classic. Following this could be a short paragraph (about 3 to 5 sentences) that describes the article, focusing on the aspects of the article that make it a classic, not for instance, detailed description of independent and dependent variables and a listing of all the studies that were done.
