Consuming and Producing Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders is an exciting new textbook designed for undergraduate research methods in communication sciences and disorders (CSD) programs. It is also appropriate for first-year graduate students taking research methods courses in speech-language pathology and audiology. The text guides students in attaining the competencies required to consume, produce, and disseminate research; and students will have the knowledge and skills that are necessary and sufficient to conduct research as is consistent with the duties of an academic professor. The text reviews what obligations an individual, professor or not, has before being permitted to do research. The emphasis is on clinically-oriented professionals who can perform the research associated with professors.

Part I on Consuming Research in CSD includes academic-clinical integration of research, as well as information required for consumption of research such as research ethics, the scientific method, types of research, and how to critique a journal article and a diagnostic test. Part II on Producing Research in CSD helps guide the undergraduate student in producing a capstone project or senior thesis and the master’s student in producing a graduate thesis or research project. Part II also addresses mentoring, the Institutional Review Board, and conducting academic and clinical research. Part III addresses Disseminating Research in CSD, from the traditional (presenting and publishing academic and clinical research) to the non-traditional (marketing, social media, and new technologies).
