Writing for the social sciences

Research output: Book/ReportTextbook/Reference bookpeer-review


Communication is a large part of everyday life. Most of the time we take for granted the skills we use when talking on the telephone, writing e-mail messages, having a conversation with family or friends or even conducting high-level workplace discussions. Our verbal and written skills not only develop over time, but also tend to change depending upon the messages we wish to convey and the audiences with whom we are communicating. As a social scientist, you will be required to develop highly effective communication skills. This book has been designed to assist your development of writing skills associated with attaining a university degree, conducting social research and communicating effectively as a member of your community. To help you become a more effective communicator, discipline-specific examples will be used to help you expand and apply the knowledge you gain so you may further your professional practice ' as an anthropologist, historian, psychologist, social worker, sociologist or other member of the social science community.
