The genius of social psychology as a field has been its ability to investigate the seemingly complicated behaviors that characterize humans as social creatures. The SAGE Handbook of Methods in Social Psychology simplifies this complexity by providing researchers and students with an overview of the rich history of methodological innovation in both basic and applied research within social psychology.

This Handbook is a vital resource for behavioral scientists in the academic and research settings who are interested in learning about modern perspectives on classic and innovative methodological approaches in social psychology. Also recommended for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in social psychology methods courses.

About the Author:

Carol Sansone, Ph.D. (1984, Columbia University) is Professor of Psychology at the University of Utah. Her research examines the process through which people regulate their interest and motivation in day-to-day life, using social and non-social means. She is interested in how this process might differ as a function of person characteristics (such as gender) and across the life span, and in the applications of this work to selection of and persistence in math and science careers and to online learning. She is a Fellow of the Society of Personality and Social Psychology, and has served on the editorial boards of a number of journals in social psychology and personality (e.g., Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology), and as a consultant for several granting agencies. She previously edited a special issue of the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology on "New Directions in Intrinsic Motivation and Creativity" (1999), and a book (with J.M. Harackiewicz as co-editor) published by Academic Press entitled, "Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation: The Search for Optimal Motivation and Performance" (2000). Other recent publications have appeared in the journals Developmental Psychology, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Journal of Personality, Psychological Inquiry, and Sex Roles.

Review:

"I like the premise and the resulting organizing theme. The organizational structure fits the described theme well and promises to provide a valuable resource both for educating researchers and for helping them through the myriad types of research methods that are available today...Achieves a nice balance, running the gamut of issues from the conceptual to the practical to the statistical....This book could easily become a classic."

Author: Donal Carlston

"The book’s emphasis on the conceptual decisions that have to be made in doing research is enticing....I believe that this book has a niche as an advanced undergraduate or graduate-level text. I would certainly consider this book for my advanced undergraduate social psychology research methods class; in fact, I’m desperately in need of such a book."

Author: John Edwards

"The handbook will contribute greatly to the training of graduate students and will also be used as reference by social psychologists working in multiple domains....It could be adopted for most advanced methods courses."

Author: Dolores Albarracin

"All chapters are solid contributions, a few are gems, and every author wrote with an eye to having the work used. This is a handbook to take off the shelf and dog-ear in the classroom, lab, or field. Highly recommended."

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This handbook gives researchers and students an overview of the rich history of methodological innovation in both basic and applied research within social psychology. It is sometimes difficult for researchers, new and seasoned alike, to keep up with innovations that allow a greater diversity in the kinds and levels of research questions that can be addressed. As a result, the nature of the questions asked by many researchers may be unnecessarily constrained. Conversely, a rush to embrace newer approaches can lead to less-than-thorough consideration of fundamental issues that transcend any particular approach. The editors believe that the decision to use a particular methodological approach is optimally made when grounded in careful consideration of the `big picture' of a program of research. Thus, methodological decisions are inextricably tied to what the researcher, ultimately, wants to know. In other words, research questions guide the methods rather than the reverse. Based on this `top-down' perspective, chapters in this volume emphasize the conceptual basis of the methodology, with an explicit focus on the meaning of data when obtained via a particular methodology.
