Evidence-based practice is the new "in" phrase. As a result of conducting multiple evidence-based reviews, several methodological issues were identified that are not usually addressed in the literature. These issues fall into two categories: criteria employed in evaluating the research, and quality of the published articles. In terms of the criteria used to evaluate the evidence on which practice is based, the quality of the research design is always addressed as a criterion; however, the quality of the data resulting from the study is seldom considered as a criterion. Power of the analysis is another criterion not usually included when evaluating research results. One problem noted in the published articles is that few authors comment on threats to internal and external validity as they relate to the study. Another problem was multiple dependent variables for a single research question; the issue is, how many of these dependent variables must be significant to declare significant differences for the research question. Interestingly, the best indicator as to the quality of the study's write-up is the type of journal in which the article is published (Research vs. Professional). Strategies for resolving these issues are offered.
