Summary
"Using the author's unique reading code sheet, this book teaches students how to approach social and behavioral science journal articles as texts that can be deciphered structurally, mechanically, and grammatically. The strategies included allow readers to systematize the reading, note-taking, and organizing of voluminous amounts of information in an easily identifiable and retrievable format, which will be a huge confidence boost to those who struggle with this first phase in the writing process"--Cover p. 4
