From the Publisher:

Focusing on general writing issues as well as special challenges of writing about music, this useful, practical text provides clear, step-by-step explanations of the process of writing a paper based on a musical topic. In addition to coverage of research, organization, drafting and editing, it also includes a thorough section on basic writing skills. The Second Edition has been both expanded and updated to reflect the latest research, resources, references and sylistic conventions.

From the Back Cover:

This guidebook provides practical and specific assistance to undergraduate students about writing research papers and other types of projects in the field of music. It also offers practical help in writing effective prose on any topic and ways to improve one's writing style.

The Third Edition has been extensively revised and rewritten. The organization of the material has been changed in order to present issues in a more logical order. There are expanded sections on new approaches to musicological research, electronic resources for research, and how to use word processing programs to draft and edit a paper. The section on format issues has been revised and expanded to make the detailed information it offers clearer and more useful. Finally, a new sample student paper has been included in the Appendix, along with discussion questions designed to help students analyze the paper, read more critically, and understand better the process of researching a topic, designing a paper, and arguing a thesis persuasively.
