The Second Edition of Paul G. Nestor and Russell K. Schutt’s successful and unique Research Methods in Psychology: Investigating Human Behavior draws from substantive research stories to illustrate how research is presented while systematically unifying the entire research process within a conceptual framework. This accessible text examines engaging research studies and examples, considering research ethics throughout.

 

"This is a great text that emphasizes the important concepts within research methods. The resources are excellent; they incorporate up-to-date research and technology and introduce the student to empirical articles, and the information is presented in a way that challenges the student to apply the material."

―Maria Pacella, Kent State University

 

"The text is comprehensive. It covers a wide variety of information without being overwhelming. This is a very good textbook for an introductory course in research methods. I like that its focus is on psychological research specifically."

―Angela M. Heads, Prairie View A&M University

Review:

"This is a great text that emphasizes the important concepts within research methods. The resources are excellent; they incorporate up-to-date research and technology and introduce the student to empirical articles, and the information is presented in a way that challenges the student to apply the material." Author: Maria Pacella, Kent State University

"The greatest strength is the wide breadth of topics in RM discussed. Most Psyc RM books focus heavily on experimental design, giving only cursory attention to quasi- and non-experimental designs, as well as qualitative (and small N samples) procedures." Author: Kenneth S. Shultz, California State University, San Bernardino

"Overall the Nestor/Schutt text content is well discussed and uses relevant and reasonably current published research to review and discuss the concepts. The use of landmark cases and supplement web 2.0 elements for visualization and further study are extremely beneficial to students. The activities and review questions clearly help students review the chapter content and self-test their mastery. The student study-site resource is user-friendly and includes resources that my students have stated helped them master and review the text content. I have used the text now for three course offerings and find that my students perform quite well and attain the desired objectives. Many students comment the skills they have acquired and polished during the learning journey with the activities and reading have given them more confidence with respect to reading, evaluating and using research." Author: Jan Lucas, North Carolina State University

"The text is comprehensive. It covers a wide variety of information without being overwhelming. This is a very good textbook for an introductory course in research methods. I like that its focus is on psychological research specifically." Author: Angela M. Heads, Prairie View A&M University
