Research Methods: A Process of Inquiry offers you a programmatic approach to psychology research methodologies. This comprehensive research methodology text has been carefully constructed to introduce important topics in a systematic, conceptually relevant way. The authors introduce complex concepts such as validity and statistical inference early in the text, then expand upon them in subsequent chapters. This approach creates a coherent model that makes complex material more accessible.
The 9th Edition has been heavily updated, including coverage of new topics, updated examples and references and more. New Opening Vignettes present classic and recent research that illustrates the key concepts of the chapter.
