As the bestselling nursing research text, Understanding Nursing Research: Building an Evidence-Based Practice, 6th Edition offers unique insights into understanding, appraising, and applying published research to evidence-based practice. It is known for its authoritative content, time-tested systematic approach, and unique research example format newly redesigned for the sixth edition to better demonstrate how the steps of the research process relate to evidence-based nursing.

Research examples provide practice in working with published studies, with many of the examples including Critical Appraisal and Implications for Practice sections. Clear, step-by-step organization introduces the research process and demonstrates how this systematic framework relates to evidence-based practice. Strong emphasis on evidence-based practice helps you develop skills in studying and appraising published research, so you are prepared for your role in working with research evidence. Critical Appraisal Guidelines boxes provide step-by-step guidance in appraising published research studies. Emphasis on critical appraisal versus critique reflects contemporary usage in nursing research and evidence-based practice.

When What We Know about Jewish Education was first published in 1992, Stuart Kelman recognized that knowledge and understanding would greatly enhance the ability of professionals and lay leaders to address the many challenges facing Jewish education. With increased innovation, the entry of new funders, and the connection between Jewish education and the quality of Jewish life, research and evaluation have become, over the last two decades, an integral part of decision making, planning, programming, and funding.

Der Klassiker über den qualitativen Forschungsansatz der "Grounded Theory", geschrieben von den Entwicklern dieser Methode "Obwohl unser Buch sich in erster Linie an Soziologen richtet, glauben wir, dass es jedem nutzen kann, der daran interessiert ist, soziale Phänomene zu untersuchen politischer, pädagogischer, wirtschaftlicher, industrieller oder welcher Art auch immer." In der Tat ist "Grounded Theory" quer durch die wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zum Standardbegriff der qualitativen Sozialforschung ge - worden. Die inzwischen zum Klassiker avancierte Arbeit von Glaser und Strauss eröffnet eine lehrbare und auch lernbare Forschungsstrategie. Das Konzept bietet eine Antwort auf das Problem, die oft schmerzlich empfundene Lücke zwischen empirischer Forschung und Theorie zu schliessen.

Das gedruckte Buch galt lange Zeit unangefochten als das wichtigste Organ geisteswissenschaftlicher Forschung. Doch in den letzten Jahren ist ein ganzes Gefüge von Medien, Werten und Praktiken in Bewegung geraten. Mit den Möglichkeiten digitaler Forschung und Kommunikation sowie Forderungen nach einer Standardisierung von Publikationen wirkt das Schreiben und Drucken von Büchern bisweilen fast wie ein Anachronismus mit begrenzter Lebensdauer. Die Kritik am gedruckten Buch offenbart ein Stück Kulturkritik, die ihr Unbehagen an der Gegenwart mit einer übertriebenen Erwartung an die technischen Möglichkeiten des Digitalen verbindet. Anstatt die unterschiedlichen Stärken von Papier und Digitalisat hervorzuheben und zu fragen, wo mögliche Synergien liegen könnten, wird ein rivalisierender Gegensatz zwischen beiden postuliert, der eine Entscheidung verlangt. In seinem neuen Buch verbindet Michael Hagner seine Analyse der digitalen Kulturkritik am Buch mit einer gründlichen Betrachtung von Open Access. Dabei durchleuchtet er auch jenes Phänomen, das für die gegenwärtige Krise des Buches mit verantwortlich ist: das unübersehbare Angebot an wissenschaftlicher Literatur.
