Introduction to Nutrition and Health Research
Eunsook T. Koh and Willis L. Owen
Kluwer Academic Publishers
Introduction to Nutrition and Health Research aims to fill a critical gap in dietetics,
nutrition and health education literature by providing a comprehensive guide to conducting
research and understanding the research of others. Using actual articles, this book teaches
how researchers identified problems; how they framed those problems; and how they
reported, interpreted and implemented their findings. Step by step, the chapters cover an
overview of the process, statistical and measurement concepts, types of research (including
experimental, quasi-experimental, descriptive, and qualitative research), how to present
results and computer techniques for data analysis. While this book is primarily aimed at
masters and doctoral level students and beginning researchers, it will also have strong
appeal for teachers, technicians and counselors.
