From the Foreword: "This volume has the potential to spark a lifelong love affair with the psychology research process. Of special value are a dozen chapters on topics typically missing from other texts, including cross-cultural research, dealing with journal editors and reviewers, conducting meta-analyses, and using archival data sets. In my opinion, this is the book of choice for introducing the psychology research process to students and research assistants. . . . Although this volume was developed for students, experienced researchers would find this volume to be a useful refresher course, capable of re-igniting their own initial delight with the inquiry process." -- Anthony J. Marsella, Atlanta, Georgia The book that established itself as a standard text and reference work for students seeking to master research methods and procedures in psychology has been updated and revised in this new edition! The Second Edition of The Psychology Research Handbook: A Guide for Graduate Students and Research Assistants once again offers a comprehensive guide for understanding and conquering the entire research process. Editors Frederick T. L. Leong and James T. Austin have assembled a distinguished group of expert researchers who share skill sets accumulated as a result of years of practical exposure to the design, development, implementation, and documentation of research in psychology. The chapters in this volume follow the sequential flow of the research process -- from research planning and design to data collection and analysis to results writing. New to the Second Edition: Provides six new chapters that cover researchscripts, statistical power, multilevel analysis, computational modeling, program evaluation, and scale and test development Addresses the effects of technology in each chapter to integrate the importance of the Internet and related technology in that particular domain Includes Student Exercises to supplement the Recommended Readings and Reference lists at the end of each chapter The Psychology Research Handbook is the ideal textbook for graduate students studying advanced research methods in courses such as Research Methods in Psychology, Advanced Methods, Experimental Methods, Research Design and Methodology, Research Practicum, and Quantitative Research Design and Analysis in Psychology. It is also the perfect resource for research professionals as well as for individual research assistants in the midst of research projects.
