Research Methods in Occupational Health Psychology: Measurement, Design, and Data Analysis provides a state-of-the-art review of current issues and best practices in the science of Occupational Health Psychology. Occupational Health Psychology (OHP) is a multidisciplinary and rapidly growing area of research and it is difficult or impossible for researchers to keep up with developments in all of the fields where scholars conduct OHP science. This book will help OHP scholars improve their own research by translating recent innovations in methodology into sets of concrete recommendations that will help scholars improve their own research as well as their training of future researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Attention to methodological rigor continues to be an important key to successful Occupational Health Psychology research funding, publishing and the continued growth of the field. This book on OHP research methodology is both significant and timely. While focusing primarily on the core methodological issues that arise in traditional OHP research, the book provides the reader with an exposure to the benefits of the methodologies utilized in more mainstream occupational health and stress research. This volume is an excellent source of state-of-the-art information ." From the foreword by Joseph J. Hurrell, Editor, Journal of Occupational Health Psychology

"This is a both timely and important book that marks the development of occupational health psychology as a major branch of organizational psychology. Whereas the methods and approaches used in occupational health psychology have often been developed and refined in related disciplines such as sociology, clinical psychology, epidemiology, ergonomics and safety science, to date no single volume presents a virtually complete overview of these methods as applied to occupational health psychology. Moreover, the fact that the chapters of this book were all written by authors with very considerable expertise in applied research in OHP ensures that this book has a strong practical orientation - the methods discussed here have proved to be extremely useful in this discipline. That is, these approaches work - and this volume tells the reader how to take advantage of them. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in doing research in occupational health psychology." - Toon W. Taris, Department of Work and Organizational Psychology, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

"In this book, Sinclair, Wang, and Tetrick bring together an amazing array of well accomplished scholars in the areas of organizational health psychology (OHP), measurement, research design, and statistics. The authors examine measurement issues regarding psychological as well as physiological aspects of OHP. Further, the authors in this volume examine a number of research designs, sampling methods, and statistical techniques that are critical to the advancement of OHP. This volume is a "must read" for anyone doing research in the field of occupational stress, health and well being." - Pamela L. Perrewe, College of Business, The Florida State University

"This book about Research Methods in Occupational Health Psychology includes a set of interesting and important chapters written by experts in our field. The book is timely since we see that OHP is rapidly increasing in popularity. Our field will definitely profit from this book, outlining the basics regarding the design and execution of research regarding important occupational health psychology phenomena." - Arnold B. Bakker, Ph.D., Erasmus University Rotterdam, President of the European Association of Work & Organizational Psychology, The Netherlands

"How great to see this timely book! With the field of occupational health psychology growing in size and complexity, now is the perfect moment to pause and reflect on our methodological approaches. Edited by eminent scholars, this book covers the fundamental topics we would hope to see in a volume such as this, as well as an expanded set of topics from related disciplines. When it comes to research methods it is sometimes hard to see the trees in the forest, but this book admirably provides clear and insighftul recommendations to guide measurement, design, and analytic choices. It will be invaluable to those conducting original research, those who commission research, and those who seek to understand practical implications from research. This book is a perfect blend of rigour and relevance." - Sharon K. Parker, Ph.D., UWA Business School, The University of Western Australia

"This book provides a useful resource on research methods in occupational health psychology (OHP). The book gives a balanced discussion and contemporary perspectives on research methods. One strength of this book is that is does not repeat the overview available in generic research methods textbooks, but rather considers the application to OHP. Overall, the book is a useful reference for those carrying out or reviewing research in areas of OHP." -British Journal of Occupational Therapy
