Health researchers present a primer on conducting research using Ecological Momentary Assessment for real-time data capture research that combines self-reports and other data. After setting out the theory and protocols of the approach, they describe its use in such research as moods and smoking among adolescents, dietary assessment, fibromyalgia syndrome, and social epidemiology. A final section projects future developments. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has designated the topic of real-time data capture as an important and innovative research area. As such, the NCI sponsored a national meeting of distinguished research scientists to discuss the state of the science in this emerging and burgeoning field. This book reflects the findings of the conference and discusses the state of the science of real-time data capture and its application to health and cancer research. It provides a conceptual framework for minute-by-minute data capture- ecological momentary assessments (EMA)- and discusses health-related topics where these assessements have been applied. In addition, future directions in real-time data capture assessment, interventions, methodology, and technology are discussed.

Despite the rapidly growing interest in the methodology of real-time data capture (e.g. journal special issues, widely attended conference presentations, etc.), to date no single book has focused solely on this topic. The volume will serve as an important resource for researchers, students, and government scientists interested in pursuing real-time health research, and will nicely complement our lists in epidemiology, public health, and oncology.
