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 information landscape.
