The Psychology Research Companion: From student project to working life not only gives you the skills and confidence to conduct your psychology research project at university, but is the first book to show how these skills will help you get ahead in your first job in the workplace.

Jessica S. Horst, an American psychologist teaching in the UK, takes you through every step of the research process; from conceiving your research question and choosing a research methodology, to organizing your time and resources effectively. The book includes sections on ethics, data management, working with research participants and report writing, but each chapter is also informed by the wider aim of providing a toolkit for working life. Each chapter is packed with tips and skills that can be taken into the workplace, including working collaboratively and organising your workload, as well as discussing your research project in interview situations and when applying for jobs.

This invaluable guide will appeal to all undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students whose aim is to learn a set of transferable research skills as well as to obtain a good degree result.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Jessica Horst provides an excellent guide, for the undergraduate and postgraduate alike, on how to best extract the skills taught in a psychology research project and transfer these to the work place. Her clear and frank writing style means the book is accessible but not patronizing. A must read for any student of psychology.

Jonathan Silas, University of Roehampton, UK

Research can be unnerving for students but this book provides a step-by-step guide for completing projects from start to finish. The content is geared toward psychology students but can be used by students across the social sciences.

Kelly Campbell, California State University, San Bernardino, US

The book guides students with practical advice for creating a successful experience, from choosing a mentor to time management to specific suggestions for concise and effective writing. A particular strength is the emphasis on transferring the myriad skills acquired in conducting and writing about research to the work place that awaits students beyond graduation . . . I believe it will be of invaluable assistance to students working on their first independent research project.

Beverley Goldfield, Rhode Island College, US
