Summary: High school, two-year college, and university students all need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paper - and for decades, Kate L. Turabian's "Student's Guide to Writing College Papers" has helped them develop this critical skill. Now the team behind Chicago's respected The Craft of Research has renewed this classic for today's generation. Designed for less-advanced writers than Turabian's "Manual for Writers", this book intr ...show moreoduces students to the art of defining a topic, doing high-quality research, and writing an engaging college paper. Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams have organized the Student's Guide in three sections. Part 1, 'Writing Your Paper', guides students through the research process with discussions of choosing and developing a topic, validating sources, planning arguments, writing drafts, avoiding plagiarism, and presenting numerical evidence. Part 2, 'Citing Sources', explains why citation is important and includes sections on the three major styles - Chicago, MLA, and APA - all with full coverage of electronic source citation. Part 3, 'Style', covers all matters of style, from punctuation to spelling to presenting titles, names, and numbers. With the authority and clarity long associated with the name Turabian, the fourth edition of "Student's Guide" is both a solid introduction to the research process and a convenient handbook to the best practices of writing college papers. Classroom-tested and filled with relevant examples and tips, this is a reference that students, and their teachers, will turn to again and again. It offers: complete coverage of Chicago, MLA, and APA citation styles, including electronic sources; helpful tip boxes and examples throughout; and, guidelines for the presentation of quantitative data. ...show less
