“Introduction to Research Methods is an excellent resource for students and instructors alike. With readable text in an approachable tone, it effectively covers the breadth of topics related to research methods. Its lucidity is stellar.”
“Introduction to Research Methods: A Hands-on Approach is highly relevant to the work my undergraduate students do and is delivered at a level they can follow. It does a great job of presenting complex information in an easy-to-understand format. At the graduate level, I could see this text serving as a primary read but then supplementing with more complex articles/chapters. Accessibility of the content is a core strength of this text. It makes in-depth content easy to follow for the novice researcher, while at the same time is engaging enough to not be bland for those with research experience. Overall, this text reads as a road map for how to conduct ethical research and provides the necessary step-by-step instructions on how to be successful during the research process.”
