The eighth edition of this manual, which incorporates recent changes in bibliographical format made by "The Chicago Manual of Style" and the Modern Language Association of America, provides guidance to writers of research papers and reports in college, graduate school, business, government, and the professions. The review of the fundamental processes of research makes the manual a suitable text in courses of many kinds: basic and advanced writing courses, writing courses in the disciplines, and undergraduate and graduate courses in research and methods. The manual also serves experienced writers with its discussion of procedures for writing various types of theses, its thorough presentation of bibliographical forms and principles of documentation, and its comprehensive treatment of the conventions for presenting the results of research. The manual contains an index which allows the reader to locate particular subjects quickly and easily; a glossary which provides explanations of abbreviations; and appendixes which include Latin abbreviations, the bibliographical format specified by the American Psychological Association, and a glossary.
