Research: The Student's Guide to Writing Research Papers

Unlike comparable books, Research introduces two sample student research papers in the second chapter, giving students a clear idea of their final goal as they progress through each step of the research and writing process. While covering all the basic research conventions, the book places a unique emphasis on the actual purpose behind the conventions, helping students develop research skills useful across the curriculum. This book is equally effective as a classroom text and as a reference tool for student researchers.
