The volumes in the Making Sense series-covering courses in the humanities, social sciences, life sciences, engineering, psychology, religious studies, and education-are intended for students in any undergraduate course with a research and writing component, but are especially appropriate for those at the first-year level. Revisions to the sixth edition of Making Sense in the Social Sciences include new chapter summaries, coverage of new developments in technology-based research and writing, new sections on systematic literature reviews and on the nature of knowledge, and up-to-date coverage of MLA, APA, and SSS documentation styles.
