This chapter aims to tell student researcher a little about how research is published and to guide them through reading one particular article. It provides some general rules for reading journal articles. Journal articles are written in quite technical language. The intended readership is other researchers, rather than undergraduate students. The abstract, which is restricted in length gives a succinct summary of the entire article. At the very end of the article, it is usual to state the dates on which the original manuscript was submitted and the paper accepted for publication. The article was published in Memory & Cognition in 1984. It is reproduced in full, by kind permission of the owners of the copyright, the original publishers, the Psychonomic Society. According to that hypothesis, the generation effect is due to enhanced activation of the semantic features of a word’s representation in the subjective lexicon.
