This is a collection of short essays by students at Brigham Young University (Provo, Utah) who push the boundaries of traditional literary study to explore the benefits of digital tools in academic writing. It is intended for all those who value literary studies and who sense the coming change in how books are read, discussed, and written about in the digital age. It is a collaborative project, produced by students of an advanced writing course at Brigham Young University taught by Gideon Burton in May and June of 2011.<br /><br />The chapters deal with how electronic text formats and blogging can be effectively used to explore literary works, develop one's thinking publicly, and research socially. Students used literary works to read the emerging digital environment while simultaneously using new media to connect with audiences beyond the classroom.<br /><br />Professor Burton wrote the introduction and 3 students edited the book. The professor and the students in the class each wrote one of the 17 chapters, dealing with contemporary issues for authors, such as Authorial Online Presence, Online Identity, Information Entitlement, Social Technology, Changing the Learning Process, and more.

<strong>Classic Grounded Theory: Applications With Qualitative and Quantitative Data</strong> provides practical “how to” guidance for doing grounded theory (GT) using the classic approach articulated by Barney Glaser. Authors Judith A. Holton and Isabelle Walsh emphasize the philosophical flexibility of classic GT as a “full package” approach that can be applied to any study and any type of data where the goal is to discover and generate a conceptually integrated theory. Drawing on the experiences of novice researchers who have participated in GT troubleshooting seminars, the book provides step-by-step guidance on undertaking a research study that stays true to the classic GT practice paradigm.

<div><b>Named by Amazon as one of the "Best Nonfiction Books of the Month"</b></div><div><b><br /></b></div><div><b>An award-winning science journalist pulls the alarm on the dysfunction plaguing scientific research--with lethal consequences for us all</b></div><div><br />American taxpayers spend $30 billion annually funding biomedical research. By some estimates, half of the results from these studies can't be replicated elsewhere-the science is simply wrong. Often, research institutes and academia emphasize publishing results over getting the right answers, incentivizing poor experimental design, improper methods, and sloppy statistics. Bad science doesn't just hold back medical progress, it can sign the equivalent of a death sentence. How are those with breast cancer helped when the cell on which 900 papers are based turns out not to be a breast cancer cell at all? How effective could a new treatment for ALS be when it failed to cure even the mice it was initially tested on? In <em>Rigor Mortis</em>, award-winning science journalist Richard F. Harris reveals these urgent issues with vivid anecdotes, personal stories, and interviews with the nation's top biomedical researchers. We need to fix our dysfunctional biomedical system-now.</div>
