Dr. Gail Ferreira offers an array of digital methods to expand the results of mixed methods studies.
Dr. Rachel Gonzales explores team effectiveness through a quantitative correlational method.
Dr. Steven P. Woods demonstrates how refractive “out-of-the-box” thinking found new independent variables that were hiding in plain sight.
Dr. Cheryl A. Lentz concludes with the future of innovative thought and the benefits of research and refractive thinking.

Dr. Cheryl Lentz, managing editor of The Lentz Leadership Institute, explains the unique benefits of the document for readers. “It celebrates the diffusion of innovative refractive thinking through the writings of these doctoral scholars as they dare to think differently in search of new applications and understandings of research methodology,” she says. “Unlike most academic books that merely define research, The Refractive Thinker® offers unique applications of research methodologies from the perspective of multiple authors—each offering a chapter based on their specific expertise.”

The Refractive Thinker® series meets the publishing needs of doctoral scholars while collaboratively sharing the expense and promotion.  The goal is to help scholars with the lack of affordable publishing avenues to meet university peer reviewed standards while supporting the great need for dynamic dialogue and innovation.
