Overview

This classic introductory text is renowned for its solid guidance in the writing, documenting, and formatting of research papers, reports, theses, and dissertations. Form and Style's comprehensive coverage of the research process ranges from choosing a topic and preparing a draft to documenting sources and creating a bibliography. The text provides models and explanations of four documentation styles: Chicago Manual of Style (CMS), Modern Language Association (MLA), American Psychological Association (APA), and Columbia Guide to Online Style (CGOS).
