* "Writing Research Papers", Chapter 11, now provides up-to-date coverage of electronic research tools, including guidelines for finding and evaluating Internet material and documenting electronic sources.

* New sample paper, shown at different stages of the writing process and also includes updated examples by professional, academic; student writers that show how writers shape their prose for different audiences.

* Increased coverage of biased language, expands on earlier discussions of sexist language.

* Quick reference boxes and lists, consolidate information throughout for easy reference and review.
