'The 4th edition of this extensive text is an outstanding resource prepared by nurses (and a librarian) for nurses. In a structured and helpful style it presents thousands of items from the literature - published papers, reports, books and electronic resources - as a clear, accessible, and most of all useful collection. The efforts to signpost and lead the reader to the sought-for information are effective and well-conceived, and the "How to use this book" section is remarkably simple...the book should be found in every nursing and health library, every research institute and centre, and close to many career researchers' desks' - RCN Research

"The Fourth Edition of this reputable work continues the thoroughness and scholarly rigor of previous editions. Clamp, Land, and Gough cover all aspects of nursing research under 25 separate and defined areas, including topics such as libraries and literature searching, the design of nursing research, experimental and nonexperimental designs, sources for instruments, data analysis, communicating nursing research, and research funding priorities. . . . Highly recommended."
