"RESEARCH METHODS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES," FIRST EDITION opens with tips a morend strategies for generating research ideas, moves to selecting measures and participants, and then offers an examination of research strategy and design. This step-by-step approach guides students through the research process, emphasizing the decisions researchers must make at each stage of the process. The authors' avoid a 'cookbook' presentation of facts by linking terminology with applied concepts; their "lecture in a book" approach makes the text accessible to students by emphasizing discussion and explanation of topics.
