From the Back Cover:

The text presents a coherent model of the research enterprise

The entire range of research methodologies in psychology are explored and explained in this comprehensive text, using a programmatic approach to introduce concepts and build sequentially. The authors emphasize research concepts rather than cookbook-like strategies, with clearly-written explanations and examples drawn from all areas of psychology. This Canadian edition has new and updated research examples, many of them using important research done in Canada. In addition, to foster student sensitivity to ethical issues in human and animal research, the Canadian Ethical Tri-Council Guidelines are examined in Chapter 2 and most chapters deal with some aspect of research ethics, keeping the issues visible throughout.


The companion website will greatly enhance students’ learning experience
