THE RESEARCH WRITER helps students transition from writing the research paper to doing research writing, from reporting information to working with ideas. The subtitle--Curiosity, Discovery, Dialogue--signals this shift: this handbook promotes research as a curiosity-driven activity that leads to discoveries that are then shared through various types of dialogue. With this practical and reader-friendly handbook, students will learn the research and writing skills needed for any research project and will be able to apply and transfer these skills to their own disciplines. Students can use THE RESEARCH WRITER to become more intelligent, ethically aware researchers, able not just to avoid plagiarism but to write with credibility while navigating the twenty-first century digital landscape.

The Modern Language Association (MLA) has established a complete handbook for writing research papers. Dubbed by Newsweek magazine as the style bible for most college students, this guidebook is required by many academic institutions throughout the United States and the world. The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th Edition) is an accepted format used by many academic and nonacademic institutions and publications. However, this highly regarded manual is not specifically geared toward scholarly academic writing...especially term papers. The authors of this book draw information from the manual that is specific to academic writing and expand upon it using document set-up instructions and a sample paper. The end result of this transformational process yields a useful guide that can be used along with the actual manual for successful academic writing. This book clarifies many detailed specifications of MLA style. Frequently used aspects of MLA style, citation, and referencing are addressed in a simple format that allows researchers to focus on content instead of mechanics and style. Quite simply, MLA: The Easy Way! presents the basics of MLA style in a clear, concise, accurate, and easy-to-navigate package. Try it, and immediately relieve some of the stress of writing a research paper.

Research shows that five strategies correlate with the successful completion of a dissertation: Establishing a consistent writing routine Working with a support group Consulting your advisor Understanding your committee’s expectations Setting a realistic and timely schedule Building on these insights, this book is for anyone who needs help in preparing for, organizing, planning, scheduling, and writing the longest sustained writing project they have encountered, particularly if he or she is not receiving sufficient guidance about the process, but also for anyone looking to boost his or her writing productivity. The author uncovers much tacit knowledge, provides advice on working with dissertation advisors and committee members, presents proven techniques for the prewriting and writing stages of the dissertation, sets out a system for keeping on schedule, and advocates enlisting peer support. As Peg Boyle Single states, “my goal is quite simple and straightforward: for you to experience greater efficiency and enjoyment while writing. If you experience anxiety, blocking, impatience, perfectionism or procrastination when you write, then this system is for you. I want you to be able to complete your writing so that you can move on with the rest of your life.” Few scholars, let alone graduate students, have been taught habits of writing fluency and productivity. The writing skills imparted by this book will not only help the reader through the dissertation writing process, but will serve her or him in whatever career she or he embarks on, given the paramount importance of written communication, especially in the academy. This book presents a system of straightforward and proven techniques that are used by productive writers, and applies them to the dissertation process. In particular, it promotes the concept of writing networks – whether writing partners or groups – to ensure that writing does not become an isolated and tortured process, while not hiding the need for persistence and sustained effort. This book is intended for graduate students and their advisers in the social sciences, the humanities, and professional fields. It can further serve as a textbook for either informal writing groups led by students or for formal writing seminars offered by departments or graduate colleges. The techniques described will help new faculty advice their students more effectively and even achieve greater fluency in their own writing.
