RESEARCH DESIGN EXPLAINED provides students with an appreciation of science's excitement and relevance to psychology, by explaining concepts clearly and using real-life analogies and examples. Authors Mitchell and Jolley help students to develop a true understanding of research design, rather than simply memorizing terms, by focusing on important, fundamental concepts and demonstrating the logic behind research design.
