  • New, practical advice about writing in online environments including learning in online courses and the need for critical thinking when communicating via IMing, text messaging, and blogging (Chapter 14)
  • Expanded coverage of writing across the curriculum, with a new chapter on writing in the social and natural sciences (Chapter 18), an updated and expanded chapter on writing in literature and other humanities (Chapter 17), and new student samples that provide models of writing different kinds of assignments in various disciplines
  • Even more help in conducting online research, including expanded coverage of using databases (Chapter 23)
  • New “source samples” in both MLA and APA styles give you screenshots of actual sources and show you how to cite them
  • 15 new “Community” boxes summarize graphically how conventions differ in academia, the public arenas, and the workplace, so you can write more effectively for each audience

The handbook “offers an approach (to critical thinking and writing) that fits with all of our courses, no matter what the discipline [ . . . . ] The Longman Handbook is one that we hope students will retain on their bookshelves long after they are done with school.”
