By simplifying the complex citation process, this detailed guide enables writers to confidently investigate a topic and accurately quote the resulting research in a variety of documents without having to consult four separate style tomes. From gathering credible sources and developing strong topics to writing thesis statements and ensuing revisions, each step of the research paper writing process is discussed, with particular emphasis placed on supporting academic integrity and eliminating plagiarism. A straightforward compilation of the four major writing-style manuals—American Psychological Association (APA), Chicago Manual of Style (CMS), Council of Science Editors (CSE), and the Modern Language Association (MLA)—this fully revised handbook distills the major concepts into easily understandable terms and provides complete citation examples for each source type.
