A Transdisciplinary Approach To Searching, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold 2009 University of South Florida

A Transdisciplinary Approach To Searching, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

This video addresses research techniques to follow when a topic crosses traditional borders of disciplines, also known as transdisciplinary research. Transdisciplinary research is a team-based approach greatly increases the chances of the translation of research into practice as knowledge is generated into action. Transdisciplinarity provides an integration of perspectives in the identification, formulation, and resolution of what needs to become a shared problem.

Rethinking Collection Development In Disaster Mental Health: An ‘All Hazards’ Model, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold 2009 University of South Florida

Rethinking Collection Development In Disaster Mental Health: An ‘All Hazards’ Model, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

The connection between weather and mental health is bound up in acute and long-term care and treatment of suddenly vulnerable populations, whether they are in-place survivors, displaced persons, or refugees. The Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute (FMHI) Research Library/ University of South Florida Library System has undertaken a collection focus on disaster mental health. We re-examined the traditional models of collection development and chosen instead to frame our collection development initiative around an ‘all hazards’ model, that allows us to proceed within both a national and international framework. Our model, conceptualized in a matrix of domains and ...

Citation Searching In Web Of Science, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold 2009 University of South Florida

Citation Searching In Web Of Science, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

Let’s say that you have found one article that really addresses your topic. Maybe the author examined a different population than the one you examined and has drawn similar conclusions. Perhaps the author has drawn completely opposite conclusions from yours, using similarly sound data. The logical thing to do is to look at the sources the author used – that is a backward citation, and then to look at those articles that cite the author’s work – that is the forward citation.


Power And Trust In The Virtual Workplace: Team Development As Communities-As-Practice, Ardis Hanson, Eric Engel, Sheila Gobes-Ryan 2009 University of South Florida

Power And Trust In The Virtual Workplace: Team Development As Communities-As-Practice, Ardis Hanson, Eric Engel, Sheila Gobes-Ryan

Ardis Hanson

How we work in an increasingly computer-mediated world requires new ways of understanding the construction of teams, their co-construction of tacit knowledge to make sense of the organization, and their use of emergent technologies. We posit an alternative research perspective –that of the communities-of-practice construct – allows a fuller understanding of the relationships of power and trust in team behaviors and processes. The communities-of-practice model provides an avenue to examine the intricate dance that trust and power perform in virtual environments, with people as the focal point. It is how people interact with each other, with technology, to be or to ...

Understanding Epidemiology Of Disorders, Ardis HansonUniversity of South Florida, Claudia Dold 2009 University of South Florida

Understanding Epidemiology Of Disorders, Ardis Hansonuniversity Of South Florida, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

The underlying premise of epidemiology is that disease does not occur at random, but rather in patterns that reflect the operation of underlying factors. Epidemiologic methods determine the extent of disease in the community, help to examine the natural history and prognosis of disease, assist in identifying associations and potential etiology, that is, causes, of a disease and risk factors for disease, aid in the evaluation of new preventive and therapeutic measures and new modes of health care delivery, and help provide a foundation for developing public health policy and regulatory decisions relating to environmental problems. This video reviews terms ...


Quick Guide To Apa Style 6th Edition, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold 2009 University of South Florida

Quick Guide To Apa Style 6th Edition, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

Citations in academic papers are a critical source of information for researchers. Each type of information, ranging from journal articles to book chapters to websites to legal materials, has specific information that is necessary for the reader of the article to find the author’s supporting documentation, i.e., the item being referenced. If you write research papers, understanding the elements of a particular citation style can make your life much easier. The citation style most commonly used is that of American Psychological Association (APA). In this video, we provide a quick overview of the elements of a citation, focusing ...

Getting Ready To Publish, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

In the world of academia, also known as ‘publish or perish,’ it is incumbent upon you to not only write manuscripts that will be accepted for publication but also to shop around for the RIGHT peer-reviewed journal to submit and, hopefully, publish your article. To do this you need two basic types of information. The first type is what happens in the peer review process. Not only are you, the author, invested in the process, but editors and reviewers will both be commenting and critiquing your manuscript. The second type is determining which journal is right for your manuscript. Impact ...

The Irb As A Dynamic Process, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

The IRB is a dynamic process in that information is shared throughout the IRB to ensure that everyone in the organization is focused on the highest standards for the ethical conduct of research for which you, as PI, are responsible. Not only is the IRB is there to help you, it is a good team to have on your side!


Using Citation Management Software, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold 2009 University of South Florida

Using Citation Management Software, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Ardis Hanson

Citation management software (CMS) is software that allows you to create bibliographic records of the materials you have collected to write a thesis or manuscript. There are several reasons to use a CMS. First, you have a record of the materials you have already read. Second, you have a correct and full citation of the item, which will benefit you when you need to create your references list. Third, since most CMSs are integrated with word processing software, you can automatically produce a reference list in the appropriate citation style as you write your article. This reduces the risk that ...

‘The Better We Are Watched The Better We Behave’. Are Devolved Parliaments Providing A Better Window For Oversight?, Gordon Marnoch 2009 University of Ulster

‘The Better We Are Watched The Better We Behave’. Are Devolved Parliaments Providing A Better Window For Oversight?, Gordon Marnoch

Gordon Marnoch

The paper examines the health policy oversight systems operating in the United Kingdom, Scottish, Northern Ireland and Welsh parliaments/assemblies with specific comparisons drawn between current rules, practices and behaviours evident in parliamentary committees. Focusing on the 2007-8 parliament/assembly sessions, comparative data is presented relating to the attendance by members on committee, the amount of time devoted to health policy oversight, the percentage of committee places held by non-government party members, cross examination of key witnesses and hours spent examining the budget. Institutional obstacles and incentives relevant to effective oversight are compared.
