The second edition of Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders: Methods for Systematic Inquiry has been updated with new references and resources throughout. The chapter on research ethics was expanded to include broader coverage of responsible conduct of research and the impact of HIPAA. Additional information, reflecting current practices in evidence based practice, has been added to the chapters on research questions, research design, statistics, and reporting research. Two cases studies, designed to promote discussion, are included in the chapters on research ethics and quantitative research design. Tables illustrating example studies from communication sciences and disorders journals have been added to the chapters on nonexperimental and experimental design, and the coverage of qualitative research designs has been expanded. Chapter 10 now includes a section on preparing a review of literature.
