520    Designed for students of applied linguistics and second 
       language acquisition on research training courses, 
       practising language teachers, and those in training, this 
       combination textbook/workbook is a set or recommended 
       textbook on more than a hundred undergraduate and 
       postgraduate courses worldwide. Now in its second edition,
       it remains the only book to provide specific advice and 
       support to those wishing to learn a methodical approach to
       the critical analysis of a research paper. It seeks to 
       answer a current need in the literature for a set of 
       procedures that can be applied to the independent reading 
       of quantitative research. Innovative features of the 
       workbook include awareness-raising reading tasks and 
       guided exercises to help develop and practise the critical
       skills required to appraise papers independently. Through 
       informed and constructive appraisal of others' work, 
       readers themselves are shown how to become more research 
       literate, to discover new areas for investigation, and to 
       organise and present their own work more effectively for 
       publication and peer evaluation. This revised second 
       edition sees a closer integration of the text-and workbook
       and a number of additions to the text itself, as well as 
       further guided and unguided research appraisal exercises
