This book covers all essential aspects of writing scientific research articles, presenting eighteen carefully selected titles that offer essential, “must-know” content on how to write high-quality articles. The book also addresses other, rarely discussed areas of scientific writing including dealing with rejected manuscripts, the reviewer’s perspective as to what they expect in a scientific article, plagiarism, copyright issues, and ethical standards in publishing scientific papers. Simplicity is the book’s hallmark, and it aims to provide an accessible, comprehensive and essential resource for those seeking guidance on how to publish their research work. The importance of publishing research work cannot be overemphasized. However, a major limitation in publishing work in a scientific journal is the lack of information on or experience with scientific writing and publishing. Young faculty and trainees who are starting their research career are in need of a comprehensive guide that provides all essential components of scientific writing and aids them in getting their research work published.

Researchers measure the effectiveness of new interventions using randomized controlled trials (RCTs). They are increasingly using qualitative research with these RCTs to explain the results of RCTs or facilitate the viability and efficiency of RCTs. A Practical Guide to Using Qualitative Research with Randomized Controlled Trials is a how-to book about the use of qualitative research with RCTs. Divided into three parts, this book covers the process of using qualitative research with RCTs from start to finish. Section one outlines overarching issues such as the many contributions qualitative research can make to generating evidence of effectiveness, section two provides practical guidance from writing a proposal through to publishing qualitative research undertaken with RCTs, and the final section guides the reader on how to engage with relevant stakeholders. Each chapter focuses on the key steps of undertaking qualitative research in RCTs, giving examples of how to write a proposal, select research questions, integrate qualitative and quantitative components, and much more. A Practical Guide to Using Qualitative Research with Randomized Controlled Trials is ideal for researchers who are leading, undertaking, or planning to use qualitative research with RCTs. With its detailed explanations and inspiring examples, this book is also useful for postgraduate students wishing to conduct qualitative research in the context of an RCT.

This book contains the refereed proceedings of the First Scandinavian Conference on Information Systems (SCIS), held in Rebild, Denmark, in August 2010. The conference was held in conjunction with the traditional IRIS seminar for information systems research in Scandinavia, and its objective was to extend and formalize part of the seminar to a full conference by presenting high-quality research with a particular view on the Scandinavian research community. At the same time, SCIS aims to continue with the Scandinavian information systems research tradition, which has for several decades placed emphasis on the relevance of practical results for users, industry and society at large. The 10 papers accepted for SCIS were presented in one single track and cover topics like requirements engineering, organizational integration, IT governance, adaption of standard software, and outsourcing. Each submitted paper was reviewed by three program committee members from Scandinavia, USA, and Australia; and this thorough selection process resulted in an acceptance rate of 25%.
