Methods for Behavioral Research introduces psychology students to research methods. The author's principal goal is to present methods in a way that will lend coherence to the material. He does this by providing a meaningful framework based on Campbell and Stanley's "threats to validity" and by organizing the book around the chronology of the research process, treating it as a sequence of steps: Formulating a hypothesis Specifying the variables Creating a research design Collecting the data Analyzing the data Drawing conclusions and reporting the results In addition, in his approach and via boxed features, the author encourages and models a process of critical thinking for students. The abundant study aids will help students summarize each chapter visually, and provide review questions, and exercises. A dedicated website containing supporting materials is available for professors and students.Paul David Cherulnik is the author of 'Methods for Behavioral Research: A Systematic Approach', published 2001 under ISBN 9780761921998 and ISBN 0761921990.
