schema:reviewBody""Social Sciences Research: Research, Writing, and Presentation Strategies for Students is a comprehensive resource to help students perform library research in the social sciences, develop writing strategies for formal papers, and orally present and defend their work. Drawing on their backgrounds in teaching library research and scholarly writing methods, the authors elaborate on how to recognize a scholarly from a popular source, develop research questions, conduct computer-assisted literature searches, and write papers in an acceptable format (APA)." "Complementing the manual are four appendixes consisting of a list of possible research questions, an example paper, a complete set of worksheets, and blank citation forms to be used to record references, which provide further practice for students. In this second edition, the authors have included more instruction on searches using electronic sources, such as the Internet, as well as new formatting guidelines that have been promulgated in the past five years. The ideal resource for college students, this manual addresses the finer points of research and writing that are not given enough instruction in the classroom."--Jacket."
