A Manual for Writers, has been fully updated to address the growing role of digital sources on academic research, while retaining its familiar three-part structure:
- A thorough introduction to the steps in the research and writing process, including formulating questions, reading critically, building arguments, and revising drafts
- Complete coverage of citation practices, with detailed information on two main scholarly citation styles (notes-bibliography and author-date), an array of source types with contemporary examples, and detailed guidance on citing online and digital resources
- Comprehensive guidance on all matters of editorial style, with recommendations on punctuation, capitalization, spelling, abbreviations, table formatting, and the use of quotations
With an appendix on paper format and submission that has been vetted by dissertation officials from across the country and a bibliography with the most up-to-date listing of critical resources available, A Manual for Writers remains the essential resource for students and their teachers.
