Cengage Learning’s Questia.com offers research paper writing tools

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

A new suite of writing tools from Questia supports students in organizing and writing research papers. From Cengage Learning’s Questia.com, the new Questia Writing Center features support tools such as a topic and source generator, a thesis statement builder and an outline creator and project organizer, among others.

The Questia Writing Center is available to help students at all writing skill levels, providing guidance through a step-by-step process. This approach is particularly helpful for those who may not have the time to connect with their professor or teaching assistant for feedback while more experienced writers can use the Writing Center to improve efficiency in their process of writing research papers.

"Writing research papers can be a daunting task, beginning with the first step—finding a topic. The Questia Writing Center offers students an easy way to uncover one of more than 6,700 librarian researched topics with the high-quality, scholarly research to support them," said Gary Jeppsen, Director of Product and User Experience at Cengage Learning. "Designed to address the varying needs of college students, both experienced and non-experienced writers can benefit from the flexibility of the Writing Center tools using what they need—from start-to-finish or just selected guidance to help with difficult areas."
