High school students, two-year college students, and university students all need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paperaand for decades Kate Turabianas Studentas Guide to Writing College Papers has helped them to develop this critical skill. In the new fourth edition of Turabianas popular guide, the team behind Chicagoas widely respected The Craft of Research has reconceived and renewed this classic for todayas generation. Designed for less advanced writers than Turabianas Manual of Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Seventh Edition, Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams here introduce students to the art of defining a topic, doing high-quality research with limited resources, and writing an engaging and solid college paper. The Studentas Guide is organized into three sections that lead students through the process of developing and revising a paper. Part 1, qWriting Your Paper, q guides students through the research process with discussions of choosing and developing a topic, validating sources, planning arguments, writing drafts, avoiding plagiarism, and presenting evidence in tables and figures. Part 2, qCiting Sources, q begins with a succinct introduction to why citation is important and includes sections on the three major styles students might encounter in their workaChicago, MLA, and APAaall with full coverage of electronic source citation. Part 3, qStyle, q covers all matters of style important to writers of college papers, 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 Studentas Guide to Writing College Papers 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.Classroom tested and filled with relevant examples and tips, this is a reference that students, and their teachers, will turn to again and again.
