"The Bedford Researcher is, hands-down, the best and most comprehensive resource for my composition students. It offers a unique and useful approach to writing and research that informs and supports students throughout their academic experience." 
—Andrea Bewick, Napa Valley College

"More than just a handbook, The Bedford Researcher teaches students to dig deep into a topic or issue, develop a strong argumentative position, and use researched-supported logic to write a persuasive essay."
—Ruthe Thompson, Southwest Minnesota State University

"I've described it as a life saver before. Because it takes the student through the process step-by-step, it's a built-in scaffold." 
—Elizabeth Kent, Auburn University at Montgomery

“Clear, practical, well-organized, and useful for anyone from a first-year student to an advanced researcher. I've even used some of Palmquists's activities in my own research.”  
—James Crane, The College of St. Scholastica
