"Updated for MLA 7th edition"--cover
Summary The Modern Language Association (MLA) has established a complete handbook for writing research papers. Dubbed by Newsweek magazine as the style bible for most college students, this guidebook is required by many academic institutions throughout the United States and the world. The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th Edition) is an accepted format used by many academic and nonacademic institutions and publications. However, this highly regarded manual is not specifically geared toward scholarly academic writing...especially term papers. The authors of this book draw information from the manual that is specific to academic writing and expand upon it using document set-up instructions and a sample paper. The end result of this transformational process yields a useful guide that can be used along with the actual manual for successful academic writing. This book clarifies many detailed specifications of MLA style. Frequently used aspects of MLA style, citation, and referencing are addressed in a simple format that allows researchers to focus on content instead of mechanics and style. Quite simply, MLA: The Easy Way! presents the basics of MLA style in a clear, concise, accurate, and easy-to-navigate package. Try it, and immediately relieve some of the stress of writing a research paper
