Summary For both new academics and those with some experience, writing articles of publishable quality can be particularly challenging. Developing the necessary skill set requires useful information, hard work, and the type of direction infrequently offered in research methods courses, leaving researchers to piece together resources on their own. This book addresses this critical topic in a format that is easy to teach and understand. It is a practical volume that teaches researchers how to identify their audience, clearly state the nature of their work, provide exceptional literature reviews, cite appropriately, and explicate their research.Beginning each chapter with reviewer comments, Writing Education Research is designed to help scholars understand both how to write effective research reports and how to get published. Practice exercises and resource lists in each chapter offer easy-to-access information about the review and publication process. A perfect accompaniment to standard research courses, this practical book demystifies the writing process for anyone looking to publish articles, chapters, or papers in education.
