“Understanding and Evaluating Research is a great resource with many examples to beginners and seasoned qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods researchers.”
“Sue L. T. McGregor provides what is missing in most textbooks on research methods—deeper explanations. New researchers will find detailed explanations of difficult-to-understand research concepts, and professors will find a wealth of teaching tools that can be tailored for each lesson. Few textbooks on research methods are so comprehensive and practical.”
“This is an exceptional instructional book written for students and experienced researchers. It’s a thorough guide that explains the entire process and provides a complete understanding of research. I highly recommend Understanding and Evaluating Research: A Critical Guide for both inexperienced and experienced researchers!”
“This powerful, well-crafted book provides novice and advanced researchers the tools to fully understand and execute research.”
“This ambitious volume provides depth and explanation to the basics of research methods and goes beyond to demystify many elements of academic writing. The book is accessible to novice researchers across disciplines. It is evident how much care and thought went into developing each chapter of this text to illuminate for novice researchers the guidelines and the quirkiness of academic writing.”
This is a book about evaluating and reporting research in any discipline. There are useful and elaborate details about peer reviewed journals, literature reviews, writing the introduction, discussion and other parts of a research paper. However, the book cannot be used as a textbook for undergraduate or even graduate students. It is useful more as a reference book for researchers writing a paper or critically reviewing a paper. As this book is not targeted specifically at students of Psychology, it cannot be used as a useful textbook.
