This book is a great companion for any psychology student; Clearly written, it offers extremely useful information for both qualitative and quantitative psychological research. I cannot think of a better go-to source before engaging in psychological research. -- Tamara Rakic

A much-needed fully comprehensive text that breaks down the stages undertaken when conducting research in psychology. The in-book text provides guidance covering the fundamentals of good research design situated within and aligned to the field of psychology. The expansive out-of-book online support materials make this a must-have textbook for psychology students doing researching.

-- Gary McKenna
I think that the glossary is super helpful for clarifying certain words, and the exercises are a great way to actually help retain any knowledge learnt, the checklist is a bonus as well, just helps double checking that you know you've learnt what you need to. Also, the discussion and essay questions are a great way to practice for an exam on these subjects. Overall that whole part is really, really good, much better than just throwing the information at you and hoping that you remember it just from reading because no one I know learns by just reading. I will definitely get my library at the university to order in a few copies. -- Student at the University of the West of Scotland
Overall, a very complete book for the undergraduate learner and one that will serve as a reference through to postgraduate studies and further pursuits in psychology and social science research. The retention of the previous structure that includes side activities such as goals, checklists, research bites, and exercises, etc is a very welcomed one. I'm glad to see the new edition include more recent and very relevant debates on research and statistics (e.g. big and open data, questionable research practice, default alpha levels, data saturation), especially on conversations to do with effect size (Chapter 6 and Chapter 10), as well as with the inclusion of the R software package in the statistical discussions. Makes me wanna be a student again! -- Assoc. Prof. Dr Alvin Ng Lai Oon

This excellent research method book is a clear and easy to read, I was a fan of the previous edition and it looks like I will continue with this edition. This third version has updated research bites and exercises which I have found useful to direct students to do and have done myself.

-- Suzanne Everett

There are many methods/statistics books on the market, yet Haslam and McGarty set themselves apart by immersing the reader within the practical and applied aspects of research. All too often students feel their methods classes are divorced from real-world research; the Research Bites used throughout the book situate learning within the wider context of psychological science.

-- Garry Norris

This book is an essential resource for anyone interested in psychological research methods. The book is informative and detailed but also readable and easy to follow. The examples and resources that come with the book enable a deeper understanding of this essential topic, a must read.

-- Dr. James Byron Dnaiel

The authors managed to write a textbook that provides an easily accessible introduction into the matter, focuses on the bigger picture, and is one of the few books that are highly suitable for self-study, especially due to the great wealth of worked examples.

-- Ronny Scherer
