"Reviewing the literature is an essential part of every research project. This book takes you step-by-step through the process of approaching your literature review systematically, applying systematic principles to a wide range of literature review types. Through numerous examples, case studies and exercises, the book covers often neglected areas of literature review such as concept analysis, scoping and mapping."--Book jacket
Evidence-based practice for information professionals : a handbook by Andrew Booth( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evidence-based practice is a paradigm that originated within healthcare but is rapidly migrating to other fields. It involves applying the results from rigorous research studies to professional practice in order to improve the quality of services to clients. Familiarity with these methods has caused an increasing number of information professionals to turn a critical eye to their own practice. Is it possible to adapt this model to librarianship and information work? To what extent are its skills and techniques transferable to the various areas of professional practice? Is it desirable for information professionals to integrate research findings into their day-to-day decision-making?These and other related issues are discussed in this book, the first to examine this key topic in depth. It is divided into three parts: The Context for Evidence-based Information Practice; Skills And Resources for Evidence-based Information Practice; and Using the Evidence Base in Practice. This last part explores each of the six domains of evidence-based librarianship identified in research, to demonstrate the application of evidence-based information practice in a practical decision-making context. These chapters with their associated Special Topics present concise summaries of evidence-based information practice within generic areas of work, together with practical examples of the application of evidence-based principles and methods.This book is of wide interest to all new and established information professionals, both those in fields such as healthcare where the evidence-based paradigm is already impacting on their work, and those in other fields encountering it for the first time. It is a core text in departments of library and information work.Contents: Supported by a wealth of case studies drawn from a wide range of sectors, these contributions from leading-edge professionals cover the following key issues: Why evidence-based information practice? A brief history of evidence-based practice How good is the evidence base? Why don't librarians use research? Formulating answerable questions Identifying sources of evidence and searching the LIS literature Appraising the evidence Applying evidence to everyday practice and evaluating your performance Disseminating the lessons of evidence-based practice Examining the evidence base for reference services and enquiry work The contribution of evidence-based practice to educational activities An evidence-based approach to collection management Towards evidence-based management Evidence-based perspectives on information access and retrieval Introducing an evidence-based approach to marketing and promotional activities
Exploiting knowledge in health services( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book builds on the foundations of its predecessor, Managing Knowledge in Health Services (2000), to capture and explore the key developments that have arisen in the fast-moving healthcare sector, providing a snapshot of what health library and information professionals need to know now." "Individual chapters contributed by leading edge practitioners focus on issues of contemporary relevance. Written from a global perspective by a team of experienced health information professionals, it draws extensively on the published knowledge base." "This is a book for all health library and information service providers and students in the field. It is also of value to the increasing number of healthcare professionals, such as research and development co-ordinators and clinical effectiveness/governance facilitators, required to access health information as part of their working roles."--Jacket

Acknowledging a 'dual heritage' for qualitative evidence synthesis : harnessing the qualitative research and systematic review research traditions by Andrew Booth( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qualitative evidence synthesis, an umbrella term that includes all forms of secondary qualitative synthesis and analysis including qualitative systematic review, has emerged from the confluence of conventional systematic review methods with methods for primary qualitative research. With such a 'mixed heritage', and the juxtaposition of quite different epistemological positions, it is inevitable that the resultant tensions have generated considerable creative energy and significant methodological frictions. These tensions have created an environment within which I have sought to make a contribution. Working with colleagues within the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR), University of Sheffield, and collaborators at other institutions, including fellow co-convenors of the Cochrane Collaboration Qualitative Methods Group, I have examined the state of qualitative synthesis methods (Paper M1). I have traced and examined the respective contributions of the two components of the mixed heritage through five methodological papers that examine the stages of the systematic review process; searching (Paper M2), quality assessment (Paper M3), framework and thematic synthesis (Paper M4) and exploring heterogeneity (Paper M5) through to consideration of reporting standards (Papers M1-M3). This Thesis explores these issues through five case studies (Case Studies 1-5) to which I have contributed as lead methodologist. While, initially at least, the legacy of conventional systematic review methods could be seen to enjoy dominance, an emerging imperative to review systematically different types of evidence to explore different review questions, coupled with reduced time and resource envelopes within which to address time-critical questions from policy and practice, has opened up a more versatile and pragmatic toolkit. The Thesis concludes by identifying key methodological issues that require further investigation. I contend that many outstanding methodological challenges may derive their most productive insights from a more detailed consideration of corresponding solutions from primary qualitative research. The five papers in this body of work, therefore, make an original contribution to knowledge by establishing and demonstrating methodological principles by which flexible and context sensitive application of the versatile 'systematic review model' can be used to meet the pragmatic demands of health services research and technology assessment
