Extensive attention to research methods supports students in the early stages of research. The discussion of searching for and evaluating sources–library, Web, and social media–helps students to refine search terms and to distinguish between reliable and unreliable sources. Case studies show the application of critical criteria to sample articles, Web documents, and a blog. NEW! A streamlined discussion of gathering information from sources stresses keeping accurate records of source material and marking borrowed words. Meticulous attention to research writing across the disciplines emphasizes managing information, using the library as a research gateway, evaluating and synthesizing sources, avoiding plagiarism, and documenting sources accurately. Students learn how to document and cite sources ethically in MLA, Chicago, APA, and CSE styles. NEW! A chapter on documenting sources explains key features of source documentation, defines the relationship between in-text citations and a bibliography, and presents pros and cons of bibliography software. NEW! Updated, annotated samples of key source types illustrate MLA and APA documentation, showing students how to find the bibliographical information needed to cite each type and highlighting the similarities and differences between print and database sources. NEW! Reorganized chapters for all four styles group sources by type, thus simplifying the process of finding appropriate models and clarifying differences among print, database, Web, and other sources. NEW! A succinct guide accompanies the index to the models in each style to help students match their sources with appropriate citation formats. NEW! The chapter on CSE documentation reflects the new eighth edition of Scientific Style and Format: The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers. NEW! A complete social-science research report shows APA style in the context of student writing. Two research papers illustrate MLA style and include a paper-in-progress, following a student through the research process and culminating in an annotated essay on green consumerism. The extensive chapter on avoiding plagiarism discusses deliberate and careless plagiarism, shows examples of plagiarized and revised sentences, and gives updated advice about avoiding plagiarism with online sources. Writing As a Process NEW! A reorganized presentation of drafting, revising, and editing distinguishes revising more clearly as a step separate from editing. NEW! An expanded discussion of thesis covers using the thesis statement to preview organization. NEW!
