Book Description :

Is a literature review looming in your future? Are you procrastinating on writing a literature review at this very moment? If so, this is the book for you. Writing often causes trepidation and procrastination for engineering students—issues that compound while writing a literature review, a type of academic writing most engineers are never formally taught. Consider this workbook as a “couch-to-5k” program for engineering writers rather than runners: if you complete the activities in this book from beginning to end, you will have a literature review draft ready for revision and content editing by your research advisor. So, You Have to Write a Literature Review presents a dynamic and practical method in which engineering students—typically late-career undergraduates or graduate students—can learn to write literature reviews, and translate genre-based writing instruction into easy-to-follow, bite-sized activities and content. Written in a refreshingly conversational style while acknowledging that writing is quite difficult, Catherine Berdanier and Joshua Lenart leverage their unique disciplinary backgrounds with decades of experience teaching academic engineering writing in this user-friendly workbook

Book Description :

Designing a research project is possibly the most difficult task a dissertation writer faces. It is fraught with uncertainty: what is the best subject? What is the best method? For every answer found, there are often multiple subsequent questions, so it’s easy to get lost in theoretical debates and buried under a mountain of literature. This book looks at literature review in the process of research design, and how to develop a research practice that will build skills in reading and writing about research literature—skills that remain valuable in both academic and professional careers. Literature review is approached as a process of engaging with the discourse of scholarly communities that will help graduate researchers refine, define, and express their own scholarly vision and voice. This orientation on research as an exploratory practice, rather than merely a series of predetermined steps in a systematic method, allows the researcher to deal with the uncertainties and changes that come with learning new ideas and new perspectives. The focus on the practical elements of research design makes this book an invaluable resource for graduate students writing dissertations. Practicing research allows room for experiment, error, and learning, ultimately helping graduate researchers use the literature effectively to build a solid scholarly foundation for their dissertation research project.

Many students find literature reviews fiendishly difficult to write. That is because the literature review -- a paper summarizing a body of published works on a given topic -- requires the writer to abandon almost everything they've learned about writing and to use a brand new tone and approach. This booklet explains everything the writer needs to generate a successful literature review in step-by-step fashion. By focusing on tone and organization and showing the writer how to use a grid system to develop the paper, this booklet will turn a difficult project into a finished one. Table of Contents - How to Use This Booklet - What Is a Literature Review? - Step One: Understand the Assignment - A Preliminary Word About Tone - Step Two: Organize the Material - Step Three: Create Topic Sentences - Step Four: Complete the Paragraphs - Step Five: The First Paragraph - Step Six: Thesis and Tone - Step Seven: The Last Paragraph - Step Eight: The Final Check Here's what students have said about this method: "The grid made a big job seem really manageable." "Thank you for the guidance. I have made a breakthrough!" "Awesome!"

Book Description :

This book is designed to help you achieve one specific goal. It’s not designed to give you the philosophies of conducting research. It’s not designed to give you a background in a specific academic discipline or a specific topic. It’s not designed to give you theory. It’s designed specifically to instruct you in the practicalities of the writing process used to create strong, thorough, and potentially bulletproof literature reviews. This book is the culmination of years of research experience. It’s also the culmination of several years of teaching writing and critical thinking to doctoral students. Although it began as a tool for doctoral students, it has been expanded to be useful for everyone from senior high school students through doctoral candidates working on developing their first literature review or a larger literature review than they normally develop. It has been created for everyone from academics to new business entrepreneurs with good ideas who are trying to write their first reviews to support the new idea they’re proposing.
