The text is grounded in "genre theory," with a stress on formal patters and "discipline-based" ways of writing. In this way, it distinguishes itself from other general composition texts. The authors spend some time in their introduction discussing scholarly debates on composition. Initial chapters focus on research, note-taking, summarizing, and drafting a proposal. They then take students through the development of a scholarly paper by examining the crafting of an introduction, core paragraphs, and conclusion. The book contains annotated passages illustrating aspects of academic style and each chapter ends with articles meant to be used for stylistic analysis."--"@en ;
