Synopsis: The perennial best-seller just got better From its presentation of cutting-edge research to its special emphasis on experimentation, Research Methods in Psychology, Sixth Edition provides complete coverage of core topics in experimental psychology, including experimentation, small-n experimentation, observation, measurement, and correlational research. The book begins with the basics of scientific investigation, including the philosophy of science, and continues to build on this strong foundation throughout the text. Your students will find numerous real-world examples that help them understand how the methods discussed are commonly used. "Suggested Resources" at the end of each chapter include addresses for helpful sites on the World Wide Web, electronic databases, and relevant articles. In addition, comprehensive coverage of computer usage throughout the book illustrates the importance of computers and their use at every stage of the process from generation, collection, and quantitative analysis to gathering research information. An author team and organization that sets the book apart Elmes, Kantowitz, and Roediger--all involved with leading research journals--are well versed in current directions and provide excellent examples for teaching. Organized by content/research area, the book begins with the basics of scientific investigation, including the philosophy of science. The authors build on this strong foundation throughout the text. Part II discusses techniques of scientific psychology; Part III covers advanced topics in experimentation; and Part IV examines the important issues involved in finishing psychological research.
