"The book's strengths are clear: it summarizes the writing process that coincides with the typical process that I teach students to conduct empirically-oriented research in political science. The author captures the typical undergraduate political science major audience well, and is accessible to students who do not intend to pursue political science as a profession, but who I think will benefit from a greater understanding about the process that political scientists follow to identify a puzzle or problem, survey the literature, develop a thesis, and design and carry out a logical process to address the problem.” (Timothy LaPira Review 2010-10-05)
“The book is very accessible in terms of writing, complete with great examples. I like that it walks students through the process of finding a topic, formulating the research question and writing the literature review so thoroughly.” (Kimberly Cowell-Meyer Review program 2010-10-05)
"Most of my students did well once they identified a tractable research question. This is where Baglione’s text shines. A poorly-thought out project is not likely to end well, even if the author is otherwise smart and industrious. Designing research projects, starting with the development of a good question, is probably the single most important skill that I can teach beginning college students. It’s a wonderful reference. I’ve enjoyed using it, and I can imagine using it again in the future." (Christopher Marcoux Review 2010-10-05)
"The strengths are the checklists, the clear guidance from A to Z on how to think through the process; the calendar is helpful to students. The incorporation of political theory and the different students with different interests is excellent. Finally, it’s short and thus not overwhelming. It’s a simple guide and that’s very useful." (Rachel Cobb Review 2010-10-05)
"The strengths of the book are numerous: the use of actual student writing, the emphasis on multiple draft writing (I particularly appreciate this), the length of the text, the emphasis on finding and then evaluating sources and plagiarism, and I really appreciate the skills-based approachm particularly when it is deliberately done and demonstrates how these skills are portable." (Michelle Deardorff Review 2010-10-05)
"As a supplemental text, it contains an appropriate mix of writing skills and methodology. The emphasis is first and foremost on writing skills, but the book introduces enough methodology to help undergraduate students design rigorous research papers. I also like that the book provides clear advice for both qualitative and quantitative analysis (and combinations thereof)." (Kirsten Taylor Review 2010-10-05)
Even students capable of writing excellent essays still find their first major political science research paper an intimidating experience. Crafting the right research question, finding good sources, properly summarizing them, operationalizing concepts and designing good tests for their hypotheses, presenting and analyzing quantitative as well as qualitative data are all tough-going without a great deal of guidance and encouragement. This writing guide breaks down the research paper into its constituent parts and shows students what they need to do at each stage to successfully complete components until the paper is finished. Even writing an introduction, coming up with effective headings and titles, presenting a conclusion, and the important steps of editing and revising are covered with class-tested advice and know-how.
In addition to using updated examples of student topics that pull from both American government and international relations, Baglione also includes examples of actual student writing to show readers how someone "just like them" accomplished tasks while writing their papers. Practical summaries, calendars, exercises, and a series of handy checklists make this a must-have supplement for any writing-intensive political science course.
