"If a student researcher had only one handbook on their bookshelf, Miller and Salkind’s Handbook would certainly have to be it. With the updated material, the addition of the section on ethical issues (which is so well done that I’m recommending it to the departmental representative to the university IRB), and a new Part 4 on "Qualitative Methods", the new Handbook is an indispensable resource for researchers."

Dan Cover, Department of Sociology, Furman University

The book considered a "necessity" by many social science researchers and their students has been revised and updated while retaining the features that made it so useful. The emphasis in this new edition is on the tools with which graduate students and more advanced researchers need to become familiar as well as be able to use in order to conduct high quality research.

About the Author:

1913-1998: Professor emeritus of sociology and business administration at Indiana University

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD from the University of Maryland in Human Development, and after teaching for 35 years at the University of Kansas, he remains as a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology and Research in Education, where he continues to collaborate with colleagues and work with students. His early interests were in the area of children’s cognitive development, and after research in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina’s Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed direction and the focus was on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He has delivered more than 150 professional papers and presentations; written more than 100 trade and textbooks; and is the author of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics (Sage), Theories of Human Development (Sage), and Exploring Research (Prentice Hall). He has edited several encyclopedias, including the Encyclopedia of Human Development, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and the recently published Encyclopedia of Research Design. He was editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years and lives in Lawrence, Kansas, where he likes to letterpress print (see https://sites.google.com/site/bigboypressofks/ for more), read, swim with the Lawrence River City Sharks, bake brownies (see the recipe at http://www.statisticsforpeople.com/The_Brown.html), and poke around old Volvos and old houses

Review:

"This book is constantly evolving and for the better! The section on scales and indices and how to find them is one of the best features of this book. The Miller-Salkind book is a treasure in this regard. The section on research grant proposals is the best I have seen in any textbook. In short, this book does a great deal to introduce the student to the practice of the profession of social science."--Michael L. Vasu

"A unique and excellent reference tool for all social science researchers, and a good textbook for graduate students and senior year undergraduate classes."--Jianhong Liu
