Appropriate for students enrolled in research methods or statistics courses in any of the social sciences or social service disciplines such as: criminology, health sciences, management, nursing, psychology, public administration, social work, sociology, or women’s studies.
The 16 articles in this reader are professional studies that span a range of disciplines and diverse qualitative and quantitative methods. Issues raised are directly relevant to all social research. The editors made their selections to provide easy access to more detailed and concrete examples than those typically found in Methods texts.
The purposes of this reader are as follows:
- To offer a cross-section of original social science articles, from which the students can learn the nuances of what they are reading and studying in any text.
- To present articles in a single reader, rather than require students or instructors to provide a list of recommended readings, which is a daunting task to construct.
- To illustrate the diversity of research being conducted throughout Canada by including Canadian-authored articles.
