Preparing Research Articles by Bruce A. Thyer
Book DescriptionThe art of writing up a completed research project in a format suitable for submission to a social work journal is an ability separate from one's skills as a research methodologist. It is also an ability that, despite its importance, is often overlooked by research courses and senior-level mentors. This straightforward pocket guide to Preparing Research Articles steps into the void as an insider's guide to getting published. Drawing on nearly 20 years of experience editing a social work research journal, Bruce A. Thyer has crafted a candid companion to the journal publishing process, unraveling the mysteries that students - as well as many established researchers - might otherwise stumble over, and as a result their prospectus for future success improve. Thyer's frank advice on selecting an appropriate journal, handling rejections and revisions, understanding confusing concepts like impact factors and electronic publishing, and avoiding common methodological and formatting pitfalls, constitute a gold mine for the fledging researcher-writer.

Science and Pseudoscience in Social Work Practice, Paperback (May 2015)
While many psychosocial interventions used in social work practice have strong research evidence supporting their efficacy, a surprising number do not. In this book, the authors cast a critical eye on the reality of commonly used scientific and pseudoscientific practices in social work today.
Developing Evidence-Based Generalist Practice Skills, Paperback (February 2013)
With contributions from the leading scholars in social work, this edited text provides a solid foundation of generalist practice skills for students and social workers.
Evidence-based Theory for Human Behavior in the Social Environment, Paperback (September 2012)View all books by Bruce A. Thyer
Human Behavior in the Social Environment (HBSE) is a critical course for social work students because it introduces them to the very specific person-in-environment, biopsychosocial perspective that sets social work apart from other helping professions.
