Overview


The Making Sense series consists of concise, readable guides to research and writing for use by students at all levels of undergraduate study. Designed especially for students in the social sciences, Making Sense in the Social Sciences outlines the general principles of grammar, punctuation, usage, and style, and contains guidelines for (and examples of) three different reference styles: MLA, APA, and SSS. Covering such issues as how to conduct sociological research, how to write reports, and how to document sources, it also offers valuable material on current trends in the field and on research ethics. The fourth edition incorporates new material on evaluating Internet sources and avoiding plagiarism, as well as new and updated examples.
