Research Methods in Psychology – A Handbook by Wendy A. Schweigent
This versatile handbook is ideal for any research-oriented psychology course. Each chapter independently covers a commonly used research method, giving instructors the flexibility to tailor the book to meet the needs of their courses. Chapter outlines, concept questions and exercises (along with a selected set of answers), lists of important terms and concepts, and clearly written explanations of basic statistical techniques are among the book s many notable features. Basic guidelines of how to write, format, and publish research results emphasize a hands-on approach to conducting psychological research. This third edition includes a new full chapter on literature searches and more information on the Internet s role in various facets of research.
