This undergraduate text is unique in its presentation of the context in which modern research methods originated and evolved. The development of modern research methods and ethical principles is explained using the examples and logic of the scientists and psychologists who originated them. Organized into three sections, the text first deals with the basics of research methods (control, measurement, correlation, experimental design, and ethics) before moving on to advanced topics and finally practical concerns. Every chapter is filled with research examples to illustrate ideas and methods concretely and vividly. The last three chapters of the text are designed to help students prepare research studies and reports in the APA style.
