9781557984555: Critical Thinking About Research: Psychology and Related Fields

Picture yourself sitting down to read the latest issue of your favourite journal. Are you prepared? Do you know what to look for? Will you identify crucial defects in methodology, or will they slip by you? Having the background and training to critique research intelligently is imperative to appraise the value of the articles. This volume provides methods for reviewing research from any area in the social sciences. Part I is a presentation of those research principles that must be known to evaluate research. Chapter topics include research questions and hypotheses, population samples, controls and experimental design, data analysis, conclusions and ethics. Part II provides a series of brief and realistic, but fictional, journal articles that have flaws ranging from nearly blatant to extremely subtle. Each article is accompanied by commentary.

Product Description:

Could the research you read be fundamentally flawed? Could crucial effects in methodology slip by you undetected? To become an informed, interactive consumer of research, you may need an attitude adjustment: from acceptance to inquiry, from reverence to skepticism. Critical Thinking About Research: Psychology and Related Fields equips you with those tools needed to identify errors in others' research and to reduce the m to a minimum in your own work.
