Written in lively and informal prose, Psychological Research builds on a familiar core of ideas and principles, drawing on a wide range of examples from the diverse branches within the discipline and demonstrating that the standard procedures of research are neither mysterious nor esoteric.In addition to generous coverage of the full range of topics necessary for teaching a successful research methods course, Psychological Research includes a chapter on the ethical considerations of research, an appendix on writing research papers, an optional abbreviated treatment of statistics in relation to research, and an Instructor’s Manual.
