Unlike other texts that focus on the research paper as a product, From Sources to Purpose emphasises purpose throughout - it is a guide to researched writing. The text presents a logical, building block approach to determining purpose, finding meaning in sources, validating sources, discovering context and connections in sources, drawing inferences, and critiquing sources.
