The Research Paper and the World Wide Web
Synopses & Reviews
Helping today's writers tap into technology, this systematic, non-technical, state-of-the-art guide to writing research papers using the Web demonstrates how to use Web tools to search the Web and libraries on the Internet; provides starting points for finding local and world-wide resources on the Internet; and suggests ways to organize all the information once gathered. Begins with a thorough review of the research process. Provides a strong link between library and Web research and helps readers map out effective searching strategies. Includes current documentation citation styles for all standard sources--print as well as Web--and contains new sections on summarizing, paraphrasing, and quoting sources. Dedicates entire chapters to evaluating sources; using mail, newsgroups, forums, and listservs as research tools; taking notes and organizing information. Presents A Beginner's Guide to the Internet, and offers an online companion website that complements both chapter content and end-of-chapter exercises. For anyone writing research papers who wants to get the most out of available print and online resources.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 173-174) and index.
