How do experimental psychologists think? How do they acquire psychological knowledge? What methods do they use in their efforts to understand behavior? You'll find a clear, lucid source of answers to these questions in C. James Goodwin's "Research in Psychology: Methods and Design, Fifth Edition." In lively prose that conveys the joys and excitement of the science, this book gives you insight into the essential nature of experimental psychology and a solid grounding in its methods and practices. Maintaining the reader-friendly accessibility of the book's popular previous editions, Goodwin shows you how to look at the world like an experimental psychologist, develop research ideas and hypotheses, design studies and carry them out, and analyze results and draw reasoned conclusions from them. Thoroughly updating his text with the important new developments in research methodologies and fascinating examples from recent studies, Goodwin introduces you to: The history of experimental psychology The various methods in the psychologist's toolkit, including non-experimental ones such as correlational research, quasi-experimental designs, applied research, and program evaluation The ethical dimensions of research Using psychology's most important electronic database--PsycINFO Preparing an APA-style research report A step-by-step approach and an array of study aids--including self-tests, review questions, applications exercises, and detailed examples of actual research studies -- help you hone your grasp of the material. Best of all, while the text puts experimental methods first, its modular organization allows for flexible arrangement to suit the reader or instructor.Goodwin, C. James is the author of 'Research in Psychology Methods And Design', published 2007 under ISBN 9780471763833 and ISBN 0471763837.
