Writing Research Papers Across the Curriculum
Designed as a "self-contained guide," this clear and efficient handbook takes students through the steps and strategies of writing research papers in many disciplines. It introduces two documentation styles for the humanities and two for the social and natural sciences, giving instructors tremendous flexibility in adapting the guide to discipline-specific assignments. Set apart by its appreciation of the experiences of real people undertaking research, this substantially revised fourth edition also focuses on the critical thinking processes essential to research and writing. The new edition is written in a personal, sensible first-person voice that speaks directly to students.
