Research Writing in the Information Age
Allyn and Bacon, 1999 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 282 pages
Research writing, especially in our electronic age, is one of the most challenging and potentially daunting tasks people undertake. In addition to learning how to work with abundant resources, researchers must negotiate many voices, seek out expertise in many forms and places, and use sophisticated electronic research tools with confidence. Luckily, this book is here to help. Written through the collaboration of a librarian, classroom teacher and a rhetoric scholar, this book guides readers through the research process and the role of cyberspace in a user-friendly way. It treats research as a process beginning with invention and exploration, and integrates current technology, research methods, and evaluation of sources to help readers construct cohesive and responsible research papers. The book covers both APA and MLA styles of documentation, with sample papers in each style, and treats both library and electronic research techniques as integral steps in the process. Also included are observation and interview research, real-life scenarios and ways to help the researcher/writer find his or her own voice. Anyone who needs to conduct research.
