Consuming and Producing Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders is an exciting new textbook designed for undergraduate research methods in communication sciences and disorders (CSD) programs. It is also appropriate for first-year graduate students taking research methods courses in speech-language pathology and audiology. The text guides students in attaining the competencies required to consume, produce, and disseminate research; and students will have the knowledge and skills that are necessary and sufficient to conduct research as is consistent with the duties of an academic professor. The text reviews what obligations an individual, professor or not, has before being permitted to do research. The emphasis is on clinically-oriented professionals who can perform the research associated with professors. Part I on Consuming Research in CSD includes academic-clinical integration of research, as well as information required for consumption of research such as research ethics, the scientific method, types of research, and how to critique a journal article and a diagnostic test. Part II on Producing Research in CSD helps guide the undergraduate student in producing a capstone project or senior thesis and the master’s student in producing a graduate thesis or research project. Part II also addresses mentoring, the Institutional Review Board, and conducting academic and clinical research. Part III addresses Disseminating Research in CSD, from the traditional (presenting and publishing academic and clinical research) to the non-traditional (marketing, social media, and new technologies). Key Features: *Each chapter begins with an Introduction and Learning Objectives to set the scene and prepare the student for what is covered. *Advanced Study Questions end each chapter and allow the student to review their skills. *Boxes throughout the text highlight key points and explore topics in more depth.

The political economy deals with the structure of production and the social relations of people in production. With its focus on structures and practices, the political economy also analyzes the contradictions of capitalism and suggests resistance and intervention strategies using methods from history, economics, sociology, and political science. The dominant commercial media in capitalism operates both as a product of economic and political structure and as an industrial institution with economic and political functions. Current Theories and Practice in the Political Economy of Communications and Media is a collection of innovative research on new approaches in the political economy of communication in the process of globalization. While highlighting topics including consumer behavior, news production, and public relations, this book is ideally designed for newscasters, broadcasters, journalists, marketers, advertisers, production managers, researchers, industry professionals, academics, and students seeking to extend the border of standard political economy of communication studies into relatively undiscovered areas.

Managing Healthy Livestock Production and Consumption is a highly interdisciplinary resource based on scientific and empirical evidence. It is illustrated with best practices of low-input livestock systems from different continents and offers predictive modelling alternatives for a more resilient future. By addressing gaps of knowledge and presenting scientific perspective studies of livestock’s impact on the environment and the global food supply up to 2050, this book is useful for those advocating for sustainable food systems. Existing evidence of the effects of livestock production on food quality and nutrition is reviewed. Livestock production and consumption is a highly diverse topic where current publications only include/focus a single aspect of the issues, for example, greenhouse gas emissions or health impacts, leading to unilateral decisions such as refraining from meat consumption. However, animals are necessary to soil fertility and ecosystems balance and a more realistic resource is necessary for researchers, scientists, and policy makers. This book clarifies perceptions by presenting sound scientific evidence across livestock landscapes for the scientific community to better appreciate the ecological web of life and the social web of community related to livestock production. An edited work written by globally diverse scientists and practitioners, including field workers, technicians, and policy makers, this is a valuable resource for researchers, teachers, and development agents working in the area of sustainable livestock production and consumption of animal source foods. National, international organizations, policy makers, and donors interested in sustainable development of the livestock sector will also find the information here practical and applicable. Describes the public-health impacts of sustainable diets and livestock products Presents the impacts of livestock production on the environment and food supply Explores future scenarios (up to 2050) of low input livestock systems Includes current case studies of low input livestock systems that offer potential for scaling-up and replication for sustainable livestock futures

In public debates, communication campaigns and public policies, it is increasingly common to attribute to consumers and their agency an ability to help solve a broad array of societal problems. This tendency is particularly clear in the field of food consumption, owing to the fact that food is both materially and symbolically central for consumers in everyday life as well as for large scale institutionalized dynamics. In order to shed light on the challenges facing food consumption, this volume takes an innovative theoretical approach, presenting four empirical Danish case studies which are compared with other analyses drawn from the wider international context. Consumption Challenged will appeal not only to sociologists of consumption, risk and the environment, but also to policy makers and researchers in the fields of geography, communication, media, governance and social psychology.

Analysis of discourse production among speakers with acquired communication disorders is an important and necessary clinical procedure. This book provides a comprehensive review and discussion of aphasia and its related disorders, their corresponding clinical discourse symptoms that speech-and-language pathologists should address, and the different methods of discourse elicitation that are clinically and research oriented. This edition has been thoroughly updated throughout to include the latest research, including advances in word retrieval and discourse production, cognitive and multicultural aspects of disordered discourse production, application of technology to understand and evaluate spoken discourse, and evidence-based intervention of discourse impairments. Contemporary issues related to disordered/clinical discourse elicitation are added. Recent advancement in discourse analysis is covered and discussions of various treatment options of discourse symptoms are provided. Finally, the manifestation of discourse symptoms as a function of speakers’ multilingual/multi-cultural status and specific considerations related to clinical assessment and remediation are explored. As the only introductory text to include comprehensive coverage of basic knowledge of neurogenic disordered discourse, it is a must-read for students, clinicians, and researchers in various fields. Readers will also benefit from plenty of examples that provide a connection between the theoretical contents presented in the text and application to real-life contexts of discourse production.

Marketing Performativity: Theories, practices and devices addresses concerns about the theory-practice gap so often discussed by marketing scholars, and indeed reframes this ‘gap’ by asking ‘how is marketing theory performative?’ How does marketing theory shape action? Who uses it in practice and to what effects? The individual contributions in this book look at how marketing theories are used in practice and what this means for our understanding of the practicing–theorising landscape of marketing. The book begins by considering what performativity is and how this concept is used in the marketing literature. It then considers three themes concerning the performativity of marketing that emerge from the contributions, before presenting ten empirical studies that ask how, why, and to what effect marketing theories are used and ‘performed’ in marketing practice. The book also summarises the implications of three themes and sketches research areas for further developing our understanding of the performativity of marketing. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Marketing Management.
