Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses, Research from the Inside Out is an insider's guide to conducting empirically-based research. Showcasing eight research projects resulting in academic and professional papers, this practical supplementary text is an indispensable resource for those intending to further their academic studies in communication or other related social science disciplines. In the text, Thomas Hugh Feeley guides students as he "looks under the hood" of the entire research process, including the writing skills needed to present research accurately and convincingly for different audiences. Feeley provides real conversations with communication researchers, often quoting directly from interviews he conducted with them. Showing students and future researchers in communication what they learned during each of the eight exemplary studies, the researchers candidly reveal the pitfalls, discoveries, and synchronicities that can happen when conducting research.

Organizations, Communication, and Health focuses on theories and constructs of organizational communication and their relationship to health. The goal of the volume is to offer a current picture of organizational and organizing processes and practices related to health. Research in the area of health communication has expanded in recent years, and this research has advanced understandings of campaigns, patient/provider interactions, and social support. However, a gap in the area of health, organizations, and organizing processes emerged, a niche this volume fills. It does so by having chapters identify an organizational theory or organizing process and how aspects of that theory relate to health. Chapters discuss how to marry theory to practice and the other factors (e.g., organizational structure, role, occupation, industry, or environment) that need to be considered in the process of utilizing the theory in organizations. This volume, aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying health communication, as well as health professionals, provides useful theory and practice related the organizations and health, and issues a call for further theorizing on the practice of health communication in organizations.
