8 new "Thinking like a researcher" activities help students engage with their topic and practice good research habits.

Reorganized content groups research resources, documentation models, and sample papers by style for easier access. Streamlined lists of resources by discipline present the sources students are most likely to find at their school library.

A new presentation of the research process emphasizes managing a research project and thinking like a contributor researcher rather than a reporter researcher.

New glossary terms mean students are less likely to get stuck unpacking the meaning of scholarly terms they find in their assignments or as they’re conducting research.
