Sufficiency in the Reporting of Research Results: Some Guidelines. Technical Report 559.
Oliver, Laurel W.; Spokane, Arnold R.
There exists an abundance of research on topics relevant to the decisions organizations must take in allocating and developing their resources. This paper addresses the problem of integrating those research results. Data needed for the meta-analysis approach to research integration are sometimes not available in the published literature. Inadequacies of research reporting encountered by research integrators include: failure to provide needed data, selective reporting of data, and incomplete descriptions of samples or interventions. Attempts to obtain needed information from authors are generally unsuccessful, especially if considerable time has elapsed since the research was conducted. This paper presents some guidelines for the reporting of research results. If authors follow these guidelines, the integration of research results will be facilitated. (Author)
