Consuming and Producing Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders is an exciting new textbook designed for undergraduate research methods in communication sciences and disorders (CSD) programs. It is also appropriate for first-year graduate students taking research methods courses in speech-language pathology and audiology. The text guides students in attaining the competencies required to consume, produce, and disseminate research; and students will have the knowledge and skills that are necessary and sufficient to conduct research as is consistent with the duties of an academic professor. The text reviews what obligations an individual, professor or not, has before being permitted to do research. The emphasis is on clinically-oriented professionals who can perform the research associated with professors.
Part I on Consuming Research in CSD includes academic-clinical integration of research, as well as information required for consumption of research such as research ethics, the scientific method, types of research, and how to critique a journal article and a diagnostic test. Part II on Producing Research in CSD helps guide the undergraduate student in producing a capstone project or senior thesis and the master’s student in producing a graduate thesis or research project. Part II also addresses mentoring, the Institutional Review Board, and conducting academic and clinical research. Part III addresses Disseminating Research in CSD, from the traditional (presenting and publishing academic and clinical research) to the non-traditional (marketing, social media, and new technologies).
- Each chapter begins with an Introduction and Learning Objectives to set the scene and prepare the student for what is covered.
- Advanced Study Questions end each chapter and allow the student to review their skills.
- Boxes throughout the text highlight key points and explore topics in more depth.
- A PluralPlus companion website includes PowerPoint lecture slides, a sample syllabus, and quizzes for instructors and supplementary resources for students.
"The 15 chapters are grouped into three sections on consuming, producing, and disseminating research in communication sciences and disorders. The book includes basic information about research, ethics, and the research process, including aspects of evaluating research articles. It also covers the process aspects of producing research. One unique feature is the discussion of the mentor/mentee relationship. The book describes the practicalities of dissemination, including types of research writing and presentation."
