Overview

This classic text is well known 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 preparing a bibliography. The text provides models and explanations for four document styles: Chicago Manual of Style (CMS), Modern Language Association (MLA), American Psychological Association (APA), and Columbia Guide to Online Style (CGOS). Widely used in departments other than English (notably Education), Form and Style is suitable for freshman composition and introductory courses as well as for advanced composition and graduate-level courses.

The Twelfth Edition features the latest information on documentation styles, using computers and the Internet, and online sources and the research process. In addition, a thorough revision of Chapter 5, Tables, Figures, and Computer Materials, incorporates theoretical discussion of the criteria for using illustrations.
