Research Writing Simplified isolates the skills related to research and moves students through a series of learning activities that provide practice and reinforcement. At only 80 pages, this is the most concise book of its type, and the most effective.

Research Writing Simplified goes beyond explanations and examples to offer focused, sequenced practice in the skills and conventions of research writing. Such practice includes exercises on summarizing, paraphrasing, correctly introducing and formatting direct quotations, the various options for in-text documentation, and correct format of works cited/reference pages. These practice exercises can be the basis of in-class instruction, or they can be assigned as homework. Because answers for exercises are provided, students can also use the text as a self-teaching guide. This text also offers practical advice and general guidance on how to write papers requiring research.

The fifth edition has been updated to reflect the electronic revolution taking place in research, including information on Internet searches, electronic database searches, and documentation conventions for all forms of electronic sources. A new section on usage and basic sentence grammar makes the text even more versatile, and updated APA and MLA sections provide the latest information on both guidelines. Its concise format and low cost make this an appealing resource for both students and instructors working on research papers.
