This textbook helps students and practitioners better understand scientific literature by instilling the essential skills needed to evaluate article findings critically. The Matrix Method is a simple, clean, and easy-to-understand way to find, review, classify and organize the literature in any subject! It is elegance itself. This is an excellent textbook for anyone who needs help organizing the myriad of information that comes with research. I ordered this textbook from ecampus and I'm glad to receive it in time.






Health Sciences Literature Review Made Easy: The Matrix Method: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Health Sciences Literature Review Made Easy helps students and practitioners better understand scientific literature by instilling the essential skills (via the matrix method) needed to critically evaluate article findings. The fundamental principles of searching, organizing, reviewing, and synthesizing are covered at the most basic level. Visual examples and a single case study are woven throughout the text. This easy-to-read and practical reference is an invaluable aid to students, researchers, and practitioners.

The Third Edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect the switch out of "paper" mode and into electronic mode. Clinical practice examples and references to PubMed and PubMed Central have been added throughout along with information on reference management softwares such as endnote and refworks.
