Abstract:The informed evaluation of ethnographic reports is essential to the practitioner who is working towards research-based practice. It is also part of the process of developing and refining nursing knowledge. While there are features common to the critical examination of all research, an understanding of ethnographic design and, in particular, of issues of validity and reliability, is a prerequisite for evaluation of ethnographic research reports.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
