This manual offers practical advice on the fundamentals of research to college and university students in all fields of study. The Craft of Research teaches much more than the mechanics of fact gathering: it explains how to approach a research project as an analytical process. The authors chart every stage of research, from finding a topic and generating research questions about it to marshalling evidence, constructing arguments, and writing everything up in a final report that is a model of authority. Their advice is designed for use by both beginners and seasoned practitioners, and for projects from class papers to dissertations.
This book is organized into four parts. Part One is a spirited introduction to the distinctive nature, values, and protocols of research. Part Two demystifies the art of discovering a topic. It outlines a wide range of sources, among them personal interests and passions. Parts Three and Four cover the essentials of argument--how to make a claim and support it--and ways to outline, draft, revise, rewrite, and polish the final report. Part Three is a short course in the logic, structure, uses, and common pitfalls of argumentation. The writing chapters in Part Four show how to present verbal and visual information effectively and how to shape sentences and paragraphs that communicate with power and precision.

Writing a research report does not have to be a difficult task that your students will try to avoid. Once your students learn a systematic approach to writing research papers, they may find they actually enjoy the writing prcess more, and you will dread reading their papers less.

In Getting Started, the student will learn how to brainstorm possible topics for their papers, how to narrow down the possibilities, and how to focus on a manageable topic. In Finding and Organizing Information, students will be introduced to two systems for locating books in the library, plus search engines to find information on the Internet. They will learn how to differentiate between fact and opinion. In Prewriting, students will become familiar with the standard, five-paragraph form for written reports. In Writing, students will learn to expand their outlines into fully developed research reports by writing first drafts, revising, and writing final drafts.
