Developmental Research Methods, now in its Fourth Edition, successfully presents an overview of methods to prepare students to carry out, report on, and evaluate research on human development, with a focus on the whole lifespan. Updated and expanded coverage of the traditional topics blends seamlessly with new topics such as cross-cultural research, animal research, causal modeling, autobiographical memory, and peer relations to provide students with a wealth of current information. Author Scott A. Miller explores every step in the research process, from the initial concept to the final written result, covering conceptual issues of experimental design as well as the procedural skills necessary to translate design into research.
