Summary

The Relationship of Theory and Research fills a major gap in the literature of most disciplines by presenting a detailed discussion of the reciprocal relationship of conceptual models and theories with research models. Emphasis is placed on information needed by both novice and accomplished scholars for the analysis and evaluation of research reports and proposals for new studies.

Key Changes to The 3rd Edition:

  • Revised to reflect the current thinking about the influence of conceptual models and theories on research methods, emphasizing to readers that the conceptual elements of research are an integral aspect of study
  • Includes updated definitions and functions of conceptual models, theories, and research; the most recent thinking about the distinction between abstract conceptual models and more concrete theories; and the contributions of conceptual models and theory to theory-generating and theory-testing research designs
  • A comprehensive format for analysis of the concepts and propositions of conceptual models added to the already present discussion for theories
  • Chapter 3 includes the criteria for evaluation of a conceptual model within the discussion of theoretical and methodological aspects of research as well as a discussion of the reciprocal relationship of the conceptual and theoretical with the methodological aspects of research reports; also includes a discussion of the influence of research findings on the empirical adequacy of theories and the credibility of conceptual models
  • Chapter 5 demonstrates how to use the format for constructing new research proposals based on the contents of chapters 1 through 4 and includes a checklist of main points to be considered
  • Includes new examples from recently published research; all new research reports are in the appendix; each study in the appendix is followed by an analysis of both its conceptual and theoretical elements based on the discussion in chapters 1 through 4
