We offer a range of scientific services in a variety of disciplines. McKing’s expert staff provide in-depth skills and knowledge in qualitative and quantitative data analyses, ensuring that all scientific services adhere to the strictest standards for integrity and reliability.
McKing employs experienced doctoral-level epidemiologists who can assist with the design and implementation of epidemiologic and health studies, including feasibility or pilot projects. We can assist with all types of studies, from case control and longitudinal to cross-sectional studies, including the collection of biological or environmental samples. We can also identify and work with specialized laboratories for processing, analyzing, and storing samples.
PROGRAM EVALUATION DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION
McKing actively works on a variety of projects in evaluation design, data collection, and analysis for formative research and program evaluation projects. Our services cover the full lifespan of the evaluation—from evaluability and feasibility studies, needs assessments, and logic models to data collection, analysis, final reports, and recommendations.
SYSTEMATIC LITERATURE REVIEWS
Our literature review experts can train data abstractors, prepare and/or edit abstraction forms, develop search terms and inclusion/exclusion criteria, search the literature through databases (e.g., MedLine, PubMed, PsycINFO, EMBASE, and Cochrane), summarize findings, highlight findings in tables or other requested formats, and prepare bibliographies. Literature review staff have backgrounds in epidemiology, public health, medicine, health promotion, community development, social services, health policy, and program evaluation.
McKing will manage the development of scientific manuscripts at any stage—from writing background sections or conducting data analyses to writing results and conclusion sections. Our expert scientific writers and editors can distill and clarify complex information and polish manuscripts to perfection. When disseminating final products, our goal is to provide full disclosure and impartial reporting tailored to the needs of the audience. This ensures that findings are useful and lessons learned are shared. We use single authors or coauthors to provide support in developing peer-reviewed articles, manuscripts, abstracts, and presentations.
