Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: Reflecting a trend in books for those beginning their careers in research, this basic book defines terms, gives a thumbnail sketch of all aspects of engaging in clinical research, and covers topics that get a lot of media attention, such as research ethics.
Purpose: The purpose is to guide young clinicians in the U.K. in how to view the evolving issues in clinical research and to emphasize that there are many aspects that new clinicians may not understand, such as funding, study design, ethics, data analysis, etc.
Audience: New clinicians in the U.K. are the intended audience, but the book clearly transcends those boundaries and is appropriate for all embarking on a journey in clinical research.
Features: The definitions of such terms as ethnography, objectivity, and validity are well done. A very practical section on "User Involvement" supports discussion with experienced researchers in a particular field to ensure the research has adequate direction and relevance. There is much on the research proposal, the abstract, the construction of the study, and peer review. The authors discuss the intricacies of publication, multiple submissions, plagiarism, and data integrity. Finally, sections cover the participants, the recruiting team, and others who work on the research.
Assessment: This is a well-written book that rises to the top of the many new research-oriented offerings currently available.
