A middle-range theory is to be developed inductively from research and practice [10] and can be combined with existing theories [11].
In his review, Pellathy asserts that The Roots of Logistics provides the core logic that is critical for the development of middle-range theory.
The concepts within the theory are more concrete, and researchers can find testable hypotheses within a middle-range theory. Often times, middle-range theories are models that can be tested (McEwen & Wills, 2014).
In some grand theories, there are more specific tenets that may be more accurately classified as middle-range theory. For example, for the grand theory of Information Processing, one of the middle-range theory tenets is memory (Santrock, 2004).
Lasiuk and Ferguson (2005), discuss Beck's middle-range theory and how well it can be adapted into practice; however, they do not provide any examples.
A middle-range theory may be developed using either a deductive or an inductive approach [11] and, unlike metatheories or conceptual models, it can be operationalized into a measurable form [12].
The components of CTE structures are a conceptual model (the C component), a middle-range theory that is generated or tested through research or and refined in practice (the T component), and the empirical research or practice methods (the E component).
The middle-range theory of nursing intellectual capital.
Following an overview of the attempts of the qualitative research movement and middle-range theory movement to close this relevance gap, he presents a new philosophical framework that addresses the relation of nursing theory to the evidence, other theories, and nursing practice.
Middle-range theory is a basic structure of ideas, less abstract than grand theory, yet more abstract than empirical generalizations (Smith & Liehr, 2008a, 2008b).
They deploy with ease the latest concepts in comparative politics, such as game theory, constructivism, situationalism, middle-range theory, and place them alongside the rich and long tradition of qualitative research on Southeast Asia.
