Semantico, a leading provider of services and technology for online publishing, has added a fourth research project to the Modern Language Association of America’s essential style guide, the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers.
A supplement to the print edition, the online research project narratives outline the steps successful students take in researching and writing papers. Each narrative in the online Handbook includes a sample paper. In addition to the research narratives, sample papers, and the full text of the print version of the MLA Handbook, the online edition offers two hundred extra examples to illustrate the text. Users can search across the full text and the additional content to find the information they need easily and quickly.
Rosemary G. Feal, Executive Director of the Modern Language Association, said, ‘The research project narratives are an excellent resource for teachers and students. We’re excited to offer users more information about the writing process in such an accessible and engaging format.’
Richard Padley, Managing Director, Semantico, said, ‘The MLA Handbook online contains thoughtful additional material that complements the book. This is a great example of online and print publication working together to achieve an enhanced user experience, and I’m delighted that this update has been completed successfully.’ The new research paper adds value by providing further detailed information to students, including how to use foreign words and English translations in a research paper and examples of the citation of sound recordings and lyrics.
