Writing, Reading, and Research thoroughly covers analytical reading, paraphrasing, summarizing, and synthesizing —skills essential for developing a research paper. Each stage of the process is illustrated with examples of student and professional writing. Unlike comparable books, Writing, Reading, and Research leads off with two sample student papers in the early chapters, giving students a clear idea of the final goal as they progress through each step of the research and writing process. Includes everything one needs to know in the areas of library and internet research, using both primary and secondary sources, MLA and APA styles of documentation, evaluating sources and integrating them appropriately in a paper. For anyone needing a reference geared to writing researched papers or composing documents that are derived from sources that need to be cited and documented.
This undergraduate text views the three activities of the title as closely and symbiotically linked in a process that is central to a college education. New to this edition is a thorough introduction to computer-related resources, including ways to find sources electronically and to access sources that are themselves electronic.

From the Publisher
"This text covers the full process of doing research and writing a research paper, including documentation. It is thorough and comprehensive."
"The authors have done a wonderful job of organizing the text to accomplish its purposes. After an introductory chapter that covers the book's three themes: reading, writing, and research, the authors wisely focus several chapters on reading. Students need this instruction, yet, too often, they can feel patronized by instructors' attempts to train them. Veit and Gould do not fall into this trap. Rather, they clearly explain the need to read well, a process to do so, and strategies for improving analytic reading, something all students will profit from."

Her most recent publication prior to this edition of the textbook was an article in Teaching English in the Two-Year College, in fall 2008.
