Principles of Scientific Literature Evaluation (01 Edition)by Frank J. Ascione
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Employs a structured, question-based approach to evaluating clinical drug trials. The book includes eight sharply focused chapters, organized by the typical sections of a published article, and provides a basic overview of how to critique papers describing drug studies. Three chapters cover special topics in scientific literature evaluation. The book's well-established and effective instructional method refines and expands upon the scientific literature evaluation section of Ascione, Manifold and Parenti's textbook, Principles of Drug Information and Scientific Literature Evaluation (1994).
Book News Annotation:
Ascione (social and administrative pharmacy, U. of Michigan-Ann Arbor) presents a structured, question-based approach to evaluating clinical drug trials, the major type of scientific study that practicing pharmacists review. The textbook for pharmacy students is expanded and revised from his contribution to the 1994 reference Principles of Drug Information and Scientific Literature Evaluation.
