Research Methodology in the Social, Behavioural and Life Sciences
Designs, Models and Methods

Edited by:


September 1999 | 416 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This is an ideal text for advanced courses in research methods and experimental design. It argues that the methodology of quantitative research is a unified discipline with basic notions, procedures and ways of reasoning which can be applied across the social, behavioural and life sciences. Key designs, models and methods in research are covered by leading contributors in their field who seek to explain the fundamentals of the research process to enable the student to understand the broader implications and unifying themes.
