"The new edition presents a comprehensive guide to preparing research papers and includes detailed coverage using computers for research and citing electronic publications."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Now a standard for students throughout the U.S., the original style sheet was published in 1951 and the first edition in book form appeared in 1977. This newest edition has been expanded to cover electronic searching methods, using computers to write research papers, and citing electronic publications. An excellent section on library use clearly explains paper and online catalogs. While there is no comparison of different word-processing programs, computers are touted as making the research writer's job much easier by combining steps and allowing movement between outlines and drafts. The new section on citing electronic formats is done well and with common sense; more than once, the reader is told that if complete information cannot be found, cite what is available. This new edition of a standard style handbook should be in every library.-Lisa J. Cochenet-Cihlar, Winfield P.L., Ill.
Library Journal
Gibaldi has been affiliated with the Modern Language Association's (MLA) Book Publishing and Research Program since 1976 and has been involved with every edition of the MLA Handbook. This classic tool for humanities scholars is a collaborative effort by MLA staff members and scholars, especially the Committee on Computers and Emerging Technologies in Teaching and Research. Core guidelines for formal research and writing are retained from earlier editions, but new rules have been developed for citing electronic material. Some sections have been expanded, and new summaries provide quick reference for key ideas, from selecting a topic to writing drafts. At the request of MLA members, an entire chapter addresses fundamental issues of academic honesty for a generation that has come of age amid Napster lawsuits and professional journalistic scandals. Plagiarism is defined in detail, along with examples of instances when source documentation is not needed and examples of copyright infringement. There is a new section on full-text databases and a revised section on evaluation of Internet resources for quality information. The "Citing Electronic Publications" section is more user-friendly and is now enhanced with annotated illustrations. Needed updates will be online at www.mla.org, but there is a growing demand for the entire content of this handbook to be available online as an electronic book. Essential for every high school and post-secondary library.-Betty J. Glass, Univ. of Nevada, Reno Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Definitely worth the cash!

    This book is definitely worth it. A must have for any student serious about making the grade in college or high school. All of the information is available online somewhere or another, but the great layout of the book makes finding the info you need easier than looking for it online. Owning your own copy will pay off in time saved with the first paper you write.

    Awesome Book

    I had to write a research paper at the last minute, and this book helped me reach my deadline. Everything is extremely easy to find and it contains everything you could possibly need to know. It rocks!!

    Comprehensive coverage!

    This is one of the books I would recommend everyone who has to write many research papers but don't know where to start. The explanations in terms of citing work references (including from electronic and Internet sources) and mechanics are great! Samples are provided to make things easier. One of the improvement that I'm expecting from the next edition of this book is to talk more about research paper layout using the full capability of computer word processor. But overall, this is such an excellent reference book to have.

    Excellent, esp. for first time research paper writers!

    Being in High School, you can imagine I write a lot of research papers. I was kind of skeptical about buying this book when my teacher reccommended it, but now that I have it I'm so glad! I used to get horrible mechanics grades on my papers, and this book has a whole section devoted to mechanics. It also helps you avoid plagerism and many other helpful guides that will help you ace your research paper!
