Summary: WRITING A RESEARCH PAPER IN POLITICAL SCIENCE teaches research methods and research paper writing skills to undergraduates. This concise text discusses both the parts of a research paper and what students should seek to accomplish in them. In addition, the text explains details such as how to choose and use headings and titles, examines different types of sources, stresses that each part of a paper requires different types of information, and considers different ways
of evaluating data. Topics include how to develop a research question, write a literature review, design a study, analyze information, write introductory and concluding sections, and edit and revise a paper. Thus, this book is more than a typical research methods text: it trains students in writing, methodological, and research skills.
