The Curious Researcher: A Guide to Writing Research Papers
The Curious Researcher 3/e offers a fresh approach to research by reminding readers that curiosity is still the best reason for uncovering information and ideas. 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 book shows that good research and lively writing do not have to be mutually exclusive. Readers are encouraged to not only develop sound research and analytical skills, but to examine ways to bring their writing to life, even though they're writing with "facts." 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. For writers of research papers.
