Each chapter has been enhanced pedagogically to include more step-by-step procedures, specific, rich yet practical examples from various settings to illustrate the method, parameters to define when the method is most appropriate and when it is not appropriate, and greater use of visual aids (graphs, models, tip boxes) to provide teaching and learning tools.
- twenty core chapters written by research experts that cover major methods and data analysis issues across the social and behavioral sciences, education, and management;

- new chapters on mixed methods, qualitative comparative analysis, concept mapping, and internet data collection;
- a newly developed section that serves as a guide for students who are navigating through the book and attempting to translate the chapters into action;

"Rarely is a text able to succinctly and effectively appeal to a wide variety of practitioners from all areas of social science while maintaining a practical and easily accessible tone. However, this is exactly what I found when I read the second edition of The Sage Handbook of Applied Social Research Methods." -- Jason T. Burkhardt * The Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation *
