The curious researcher: a guide to writing research papers
The Curious Researcher offers a fresh approach to research by reminding students that curiosity is still the best reason for uncovering information and ideas.
Perfect for instructors eager for an alternative to the traditional text, this author provides ample proof that the research process, like the writing process, can be full of rewarding discoveries.
Using a variety of examples from both professional writers and students, this text shows that good research and lively writing do not have to be mutually exclusive. Students are encouraged to not only develop sound research and analytical skills, but to examine ways to bring their writing to life, even though they are writing with "facts."
This text is designed to battle procrastination as well. It helps students work week-by-week through the five weeks typically allotted to the research assignment, featuring exercises and assignments that will help students write their papers.
Though The Curious Researcher stands apart from similar texts because of its motivational qualities, it also features full explanations of the technical aspects of the research paper. MLA citation conventions are given extensive treatment, and APA standards are also explained in the Appendix.
