From the Back Cover:

Discovering Research Methods in Psychology presents an accessible, student-friendly introduction to the principal research methodology techniques that underpin the field of psychology. By utilizing a narrative approach, the text facilitates a clearer understanding of the complexities of research and the vital role it has played in the development of psychology. The majority of the text consists of clear summaries of carefully-chosen contemporary studies that reflect diversity while introducing the reader to the three main types of research methods used in psychology: observation, experimentation, and survey methods. An additional section featuring a comprehensive glossary of research terms that appear in the narrative provides further clarity. The text's final section then offers expansive coverage of several important issues raised in the narrative such as Ethical Guidelines, Probability, Report Writing, and Referencing.

Discovering Research Methods in Psychology: A Student's Guide offers a refreshingly readable alternative that ensures a thorough grounding in the fundamental methodology that is essential to the study of psychology.
