Evaluating, Doing and Writing Research in Psychology

Evaluating, Doing and Writing Research in Psychology is a thoroughly revised and expanded co-edition of the highly regarded Reasoning and Argument in Psychology, originally published by UNSW Press, Australia. It represents a comprehensive textbook for all undergraduates in psychology who need to undertake empirical research, taking them step-by-step through the process. In particular, it offers a range of study skills enabling the student to understand the complex processes involved with psychological research, not really covered in other texts. Coverage includes: a guide to evaluating statements, arguments and a range of different psychological explanations; chapters on the interpretation and evaluation of data and evidence, understanding weaknesses in psychological argument, and measurement and numerical reasoning; and chapters on doing a literature review, writing up essays and projects, and reporting observational studies.
