Much more than a style guide that teaches students the correct way to set up a footnote, Where Credit is Due provides complete nuts-and-bolts information for all aspects of researching, writing, laying out, and presenting a research or term paper.
The book begins by providing an idea list for information resources, both print and nonprint. It then provides clear guidelines for including the information within the paper and attributing it correctly, whether the original source is a book, a short story, a letter, or a poster; a filmstrip, computer software, a radio broadcast, or a telephone call. Once the report is researched and drafted, Where Credit is Due offers checklists for content, grammar, format, and proofreading, as well as complete guidelines for correctly formatting everything from the title page to the index. Sample pages and a glossary of terms are also included.
An essential reference text for high school and college students enrolled in any course where a research/term paper is required.
