Now available together as a set for a discounted price: Writing A Successful Research Paper: A Simple Approach, by Stanley Chodorow, and Writing with Sources, (Second Edition): A Guide for Students, by Gordon Harvey.

Writing A Successful Research Paper is a brief, practical guide that offers a clear and comprehensive strategy for conceptualizing, approaching, and executing the task of writing a research paper in the humanities and social sciences. It provides a critical and process-oriented approach to the tasks of topic selection, formulation of the research question, thesis development, and argumentation. It also offers judiciously selected examples drawn from a broad range of disciplines, concise treatment of the aims, methods, and conventions of scholarly research, including the opportunities and pitfalls of Internet use, a wealth of conceptual and organizational tools, and more.

Developed for Harvard University's Expository Writing Program, Writing with Sources describes the main principles and methods of integrating and citing sources in scholarly work, and provides cogent guidance on avoiding the misuse of sources. The second edition of Writing with Sources is updated throughout, and includes new material on the roles sources play in argument, on assessing the reliability of sources, and on attitudes about writing that can lead to plagiarism.
