Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Methodological orientations of articles appearing in allied health's top journals: Who publishes what and where
by Alderman, Pamela Lea McCloud, Ed.D., Marshall University, 2012, 113; 3505573
Abstract (Summary)

This study examined articles published in the major peer-reviewed journals, either hard copy, web, or both formats, in five allied health professions from January 2006 to December 2010. Research journals used in this study include: Journal of Dental Hygiene, Journal of the American Dietetic Association, Journal of Nursing Scholarship, Physical Therapy Journal of the American Physical Therapy Association, and Radiologic Technology. These journals were chosen after reviewing the professional organizations' of each discipline, as well as the professional honor societies, and the recommendations by the discipline-specific national accreditation agencies found on the organizations' websites. All research articles published in these journals, 1469, were reviewed to determine the type and frequency of research published in each allied health discipline. These factors were evaluated against the gender and academic rank of the lead author. A descriptive, non-experimental research design was used in this study. Chi-square tests were used for frequency analyses.
