Evaluating Sources to Answer a Research Question

You will want your research paper to be respected and credible.
Therefore, after you identify sources relevant to your research,
you need to determine whether they can help answer your research question.
There are four questions to ask when evaluating sources:
  1. How well does the source answer the research question?
  2. Is the information provided by an expert?
  3. Is the source valid?
  4. Is there a variety of sources?

Elements of a Research Proposal and Report

2005 © David S. Walonick, Ph.D.


The Research Proposal and Report

http://www.statpac.org/research-library/research-proposal.htm
.
.
The methods section of a research paper provides
the information by which a study's validity is judged.
Therefore, it requires a clear and precise description
of how an experiment was done, and the rationale for
why specific experimental procedures were chosen.
The methods section should describe what was done
to answer the research question, describe how it was
done, justify the experimental design, and explain how
the results were analyzed. Scientific writing is direct
and orderly. Therefore, the methods section structure
should: describe the materials used in the study, explain
how the materials were prepared for the study, describe
the research protocol, explain how measurements were
made and what calculations were performed, and state
which statistical tests were done to analyze the data.
Once all elements of the methods section are written,
subsequent drafts should focus on how to present those
elements as clearly and logically as possibly.
The description of preparations, measurements, and the
protocol should be organized chronologically. For clarity,
when a large amount of detail must be presented, information
should be presented in sub-sections according to topic.
Material in each section should be organized by topic from
most to least important.

EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICE
Amber Huett and David MacMillan
June 2011
UNA Center for Writing Excellence
 
Evidence Based Practice in nursing focuses on the idea that medical practices ought to be developed and adapted based on an ongoing cycle of evidence, theory, and research. As changes in practice prompt further research, the theories developed from that research serve as evidence to
produce more changes in practice. The implementation of Evidence Based Practice in nursing, also called Systematic Review, requires the review of such research with the intention of targeting and improving inadequate practice.
 
The systematic review of outside research attempts to make sense of the large body of information available in order to implement change effectively. The available research may be qualitative, quantitative, or evidence based. How can this research be applied on an individual basis to improve patient care?
 
Evidence Based Practice involves the following six steps:
 
Assess the need for change
 
Locate the best evidence
 
Synthesize evidence
 
Design the change
 
Implement and evaluate
 
Integrate and maintain changes

Abstract Transparency in research methods and results is now widely seen as an imperative if the healthcare and research enterprise is to be truly successful. A patient-centred focus in the conduct of clinical care includes its safety, effectiveness, efficiency, equity, and timeliness. Innovative ways are being developed to understand, disseminate, and rapidly apply the best evidence to care delivery. In this article, we demonstrate the use of simple and appropriate statistics in research reports that should help healthcare providers apply knowledge to practice by making it easier for them to understand clinical medicine.

Abstract The quality of a research paper depends primarily on the quality of the research study it reports. However, there is also much that authors can do to maximise the clarity and usefulness of their papers. Journals' instructions for authors often focus on the format, style, and length of articles but do not always emphasise the need to clearly explain the work's science and ethics: so this review reminds researchers that transparency is important too. The research question should be stated clearly, along with an explanation of where it came from and why it is important. The study methods must be reported fully and, where appropriate, in line with an evidence based reporting guideline such as the CONSORT statement for randomised controlled trials. If the study was a trial the paper should state where and when the study was registered and state its registration identifier. Finally, any relevant conflicts of interest should be declared.

The Myth of the Off-Limits Source

Chelsea blog 2by Chelsea Lee
 
 
Proper citation is an important component of any APA Style paper.
However, many readers believe certain sources aren’t allowed in
APA Style, and they write to us looking for a definitive list of what is
off limits. Two of the most common questions are about whether it’s
okay to cite websites and whether sources have to have been
published within a certain time frame to be cited, such as the last
5 or 10 years.

EPC Evidence-Based Reports | Agency for Healthcare Research
 
 
 

Search All EPC Reports

This search provides complete titles of released evidence reports,
comparative effectiveness reviews, technical briefs, Technology
Assessment Program reports, and U.S. Preventive Services Task
Force evidence syntheses.

Overview

Under the Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPC) Program of
the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 5-year contracts
are awarded to institutions in the United States and Canada to
serve as EPCs. The EPCs review all relevant scientific literature on
a wide spectrum of clinical and health services topics to produce
various types of evidence reports. These reports may be used for
informing and developing coverage decisions, quality measures,
educational materials and tools, clinical practice guidelines, and
research agendas. The EPCs also conduct research on methodology
of evidence synthesis.

Participating EPCs

The following list provides contact information and Web sites
where available for the 13 Evidence-based Practice Centers
currently funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and
Quality.

EPC Topic Nomination and Selection

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) serves
as the science partner with private-sector and public organizations
in their efforts to improve the quality, effectiveness, and
appropriateness of health care delivery in the United States, and to
expedite the translation of evidence-based research findings into
improved health care services. In this context, AHRQ awards task
order contracts to its Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPCs) to
undertake scientific analysis and evidence syntheses on topics of
high priority to its stakeholders, which includes public and private
health care payers, providers, and the health care community in
general.

Resources for Researchers

EPCs produce technical reports on systematic review methodological
topics and other types of evidence synthesis-related reports such as

General Principles for References

  • Use the most original source possible.
  • Use the most up-to-date and reliable source available.
  • Your paper is only as good as its weakest source.

The Following ARE Acceptable References

  • Scholarly Periodicals
  • Scholarly Books
  • Reputable Translations of Foreign Works
  • Student Theses
  • Research Forums or Hotlines on the Internet
  • Internet Periodicals by Reputable Organizations
Most of the information in academia does not flow through books! The real information flow is through periodicals. Even here, acceptability varies. Scientific American is acceptable for most college research papers, but not for a graduate thesis.
Scholarly books serve several purposes:
  • They collect related articles on a subject from scattered sources.
  • They contain specially-written articles contributed by various authorities to summarize the state of research on a subject.
  • They summarize the results of research over a long period of time that would be too lengthy to publish as a periodical article. They can also include details that would be too obscure to merit inclusion in a journal article.
