The Modern Language Association, the authority on research and writing, takes a fresh look at documenting sources in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. Shorter and redesigned for easy use, the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook guides writers through the principles behind evaluating sources for their research. It then shows them how to cite sources in their writing and create useful entries for the works-cited list.
A Guide to Writing Research Papers emphasizes that curiosity is the best reason for investigating ideas and information. A unique chronological organization sets up achievable writing goals while it provides week-by-week guidance through the research process. The text also includes up-to-date coverage of MLA and APA styles.
