News & Notes


The American Educational Research
Association has published new Standards for
Reporting on Empirical Social Science
Research.

These standards offer a thoughtful overview
of important elements of research reporting
that you may find useful when drafting
manuscripts or conference proposals.

The standards aim to promote 'empirical
research reporting that is warranted and
transparent,' Warranted and transparent
reporting provides adequate evidence
justifying research results and conclusions,
and an account of the logic behind the
research focus and all related activities, from
conceptualization, to data collection and
analysis, to conclusions.

Here are a few pointers to consider:

Problem Formulation: This section should
provide a clear statement of purpose and
scope of the research; describe the research
question addressed and the importance of the
line of inquiry. Here, authors should explain
why this is an important issue and how the
study will contribute to extant knowledge in
this area. A thorough review of relevant
literature directly related to the topic is
essential. Authors should also describe how
this particular study contributes to gaps in
theory, practice, methods, or other aspects of
this line of inquiry. Finally, make sure you
provide a strong rationale for the conceptual,
methodological, and theoretical orientation of
the study that is informed by current
scholarship.


Design and Logic: The logic behind the
study's design should come from the problem
formulation which, in turn, informs the
research questions, data collection methods,
analysis, interpretation, and reporting of
results. The logic behind the line of inquiry
must be transparent, and the description of
the research design specific and clear-cut.
These may seem elementary, but often are not
as clearly articulated as they should be!

Sources of Evidence: The units of study and
the means of their selection should be
carefully described and a clear rationale
provided. When conducting outcome studies,
the details of the intervention should be
outlined so that the reader can identify key
elements and use these to account for the
results. Data collection should be described
clearly and explicitly since this information
allows other researchers to replicate the study
as conducted originally.

Measurement and Classification: The
phenomena of focus are captured through the
measurement and classification process;
development of these must be described
clearly. The report indicates that classification
schemes are particularly important in the data
analysis of qualitative studies. Rationale for
the relevance of the measurement or
classification as capturing significant traits of
the group being studied should also be
provided.

Analysis and Interpretation: A transparent
and precise description of the analysis
procedures should be provided throughout.
Specific analytic techniques should be
described in detail so readers understand how








data were analyzed and the specific processes
involved. Presentation of results should
clearly support conclusions made by
researchers. The standards also address
specific issues pertaining to analysis and
interpretation using quantitative and qualitative
research methodologies.

Generalization issues such as intended scope
and contextual considerations also are
discussed.

Ethics in Reporting is a particularly useful
section of the standards. AERA has a separate
report addressing ethics in research reporting
which may be found at:
http: //www/aera/net/aboutaera /?id222

Finally, the standards offer recommendations
about developing appropriate Title, Abstract,
and Headings for your research report or
proposal.

The entire document may be found at:

We encourage you to review the document
and share it with your doctoral students!

OER Happenings

Please mark your calendars for the following
OER-sponsored events:

Faculty Professional Development Series~
Topic: Conducting Randomized Clinical
Trials in Natural Settings: Panel
Presentation

Panel members Ann Daunic, Holly Lane,

Regina Bussing, Department of Psychiatry,
College of Medicine faculty will present an
overview of their experiences conducting
randomized clinical trials in applied settings.
This session will provide faculty and doctoral
students with an opportunity to learn about
and discuss the benefits and challenges of


carrying out research studies using this
methodology.

Location: 158 Norman
Date & Time: Wednesday, November 15
from 12:00noon-1:00pm

Bring your lunch. Refreshments & Cookies
will be provided.
Please RSVP to Ana by Wednesday,

December Brown Bag ~
Topic: Transition Center Overview and
Research Collaboration Opportunities
Hosted by Jeanne Repetto, Special Education
Associate Professor and The Transition Center's
Director.

Research conducted through The Transition
Center is currently taking place in high
schools and middle schools in districts across
Florida. Please join us for a brown bag to
explore ways that your research agenda can be
facilitated through collaboration with The
Transition Center. During the brown bag we
will provide a brief overview of The
Transition Center, our research agenda and
available support. Time will then be spent
exploring participants' research interests and
potential collaboration opportunities.

Location: 158 Norman
