Summary

Complete coverage of the research writing process combined with the practical ease of use of a handbook. Handy reference features ensure that students can find information quickly and work competently through each stage of their projects. Marginal cross-references integrate the book with the wealth of resources available on its unparalleled companion Web site.

A step-by-step approach to research writing in the digital age. The Bedford Researcher integrates electronic information sources and tools into every part of the process while giving special attention to the challenges electronic research methods pose to students.

A conversational, student friendly tone coupled with a focus on student writing. A new section on Getting Started with Confidence gives students an early overview of the entire research process and how to approach it. A focus on real student writing allows students to follow the processes of their peers and reflect on their own methods. "My Research Project" activities allow students to apply what they learn to their own projects.

A cross-curricular companion. For research writing help in the composition course and beyond, The Bedford Researcher includes abundant examples and models that span the disciplines. The text offers guidelines for writing papers in MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE style.
