Summary

High school students, two-year college students, and university students all need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paperand for decades Kate Turabian'sStudent's Guide to Writing College Papershas helped them to develop this critical skill. In the new fourth edition of Turabian's popular guide, the team behind Chicago's widely respectedThe Craft of Researchhas reconceived and renewed this classic for today's generation. Designed for less advanced writers than Turabian'sManual 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.TheStudent's Guideis organized into three sections that lead students through the process of developing and revising a paper. 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 evidence in tables and figures. Part 2, "Citing Sources," begins with a succinct introduction to why citation is important and includes sections on the three major styles students might encounter in their workChicago, MLA, and APAall with full coverage of electronic source citation. Part 3, "Style," 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 ofStudent's Guide to Writing College Papersis 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.
