The Making Sense series offers clear, concise guides to research and writing for students at all levels of undergraduate study. The volumes in the Making Sense series-covering courses in 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 second edition of Making Sense in the Life Sciences include coverage of new developments in technology-based research and writing. It provides examples on how to read scientific articles, how to find the papers that students need for their essays, and how to move this information into bibliographies. This edition also provides examples of how to search across various databases to find the important papers in a field, as well as how to burrow deeply into scientific literature.
