Helping users learn to develop research ideas and see these ideas to completion, this one-of-a-kind book examines cognitive, learning, and social areas within psychology, and has readers actually develop experimental ideas on their own within these areas by paving paths for them to follow within the general framework of idea development. Provides background information on psychological research in general, ethics, where ideas come from, and what is needed to do research. Prints published articles in a particular area of psychology, offers ideas for variations on the research presented, then asks readers to come up with their own research ideas. Presents research by authors to concretely demonstrate how the idea was developed and brought to fruition, and to show readers how easy it is to develop an actual study. For experimental and research psychologists.
