Abstract

In this article, we present our work in extending and testing Imogene King's conceptual framework and theory in Japan, Sweden, and the United States. Comparing and contrasting cultural relevance, methodology, and issues of validity provide examples of international scholarship and knowledge development that result from networking and collaboration.
