Writing for Emerging Sociologists is a writing guide designed to provide useful advice and instruction to sociology undergraduate and graduate students. While focused on the variety of writing projects that sociologists undertake, this book covers writing topics for all students and professionals, including: Selecting a research topic and active reading; library database keyword searches; grant writing; book reviews; encyclopedia entries; the IRB process; editing and revising; policy briefs; and even the Graduate Record Exam. Additionally, this title offers more sociology specific instruction on topics such as citation styles, writing for surveys, interviews and focus groups; and writing a research paper and literature review.
Not all writing in Writing for Emerging Sociologists falls within the realm of the strictly academic as much of the writing students do regularly is based on the use of technology and media in today's world. This book addresses the writing in constructing emails and letters; and writing for newspapers, magazines and blogs. It also discusses how technology is used in information-gathering and analysis.
