This basic writing text offers advice to students about the transition from doing research to writing up one's findings. The book emphasizes the diverse types of writing in the social sciences, explaining some of the terminology used in different fields and the procedures of different types of research, such as original research versus library research papers. Lee (Wellesley College) devotes one chapter to the Internet as a research medium, and offers a full chapter on form as well, discussing the basics of citation (from a variety of sources including the Internet).
