About this product
- DescriptionCollaborative writing has attracted much attention in the last 25 years, though it eludes clear definition. In its simplest sense, it is writing done by more than one person. But in a broader sense, even a work by one author involves collaboration. The author typically builds on the work of others and revises the writing in response to feedback. This feedback can come from a student's peers or teacher in a classroom setting, it can come from experts and editors who assess a scholar's writing, or it can come from colleagues and clients in the world of business. This bibliography is a guide to research on collaborative writing published from the early 1970s to 1997. Included are nearly 1000 antated entries for books, articles, reports, bibliographies, and other materials. These entries are clustered in two broad parts, each of which contains numerous topical sections. The first part of the book is devoted to collaborative writing in academic settings and covers such topics as classroom issues, peer review and tutoring, the role of computers and techlogy, particular types of classes, and ethical and gender concerns. The second looks at collaborative writing in nacademic settings. Included are works on corporate acculturation, group dynamics, policies and procedures, industry-university collaboration, and technical reports. Entries are arranged alphabetically in each section, and detailed author and subject indexes provide easy access to the material.
