Synopsis:

Aids students in understanding and interpreting quantitative research articles

Designed for anyone who needs to learn to read and understand empirical reports in the social and behavioral sciences, this multidisciplinary book provides individuals with the knowledge necessary to understand research without overwhelming them with information about how to conduct research. His enthusiasm for methods present on every page, author Francis C. Dane wants readers to have the skills to evaluate research and critically use empirical results. Readers will gain a greater appreciation for the ways in which consuming research can add to their understanding of the way the world works and how they can enhance their efforts to improve it.

Key Features

  • Every facet of evaluating research is covered―from key terms and concepts to communicating the final results
  • The author pairs statistical concepts and procedures with appropriate research methods
  • Strong pedagogy such as chapter overviews, summaries, key terms, and application exercises allows readers to check their understanding of the material

This book can be used in both upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level courses in public policy, public health, education, sociology, psychology, social work and nursing.

About the Author:

Francis C. (Frank) Dane received a B.S. in psychology from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and a Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Kansas. His advisor was Larry Wrightsman, and he has certainly followed in Dr. Wrightsman’s footsteps in terms of staying active in publishing and doing research. He started as Assistant Professor of Psychology at State University of New yYork in Oswego, New York from 1979 to 1983. He moved to Clemson University in South Carolina from 1983 to 1988, where he was promoted to Associate Professor of Psychology, and then moved to Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where he was Associate Professor and Department Chair of Psychology. He stayed at Mercer as the William Heard Kilpatrick Professor of Psychology in the College of Liberal Arts and as Professor of Internal Medicine at Mercer University School of Medicine until 2002. He then became the inaugural James V. Finkbeiner Endowed Chair of Ethics and Public Policy in the College of Arts and Behavioral Sciences at Saginaw Valley State University in University Center, Michigan, until 2010, after which he accepted his current position, Chair of Arts & Sciences at Jefferson College of Health Sciences in Roanoke, Virginia. He can be reached via email at fcdane@jchs.edu and followed on Twitter as @FrankDaneDoc.
