Understanding and applying research methods and statistics in psychology is one of the corner stones of study at undergraduate level. To enable all undergraduate psychology students to carry out their own investigations the textbook covers basic and advanced qualitative and quantitative methods and follows a sequential structure starting from first principles to more advanced techniques.

Accompanied by a companion website, the textbook:

- Grounds all techniques to psychological theory relating each topic under discussion to well established pieces of research

- Can be used by the student at beginning and more advanced undergraduate level - therefore a `one-stop' shop

- Includes a creative and practical selection of heuristic devices that cement knowledge of the techniques and skills covered in the textbook

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This text covers more than most research methods and statistics texts in terms of its breadth ...Not only will students understand a range of methods and analytical techniques, they will understand why and how these have been used in relation to key psychological studies. By putting key studies at the heart of this book it demonstrates the importance of understanding methods and analysis in order to fully appreciate and understand psychology' - Dr Paul Redford, University of West of England

'Understanding Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology provides an excellent introduction for any student new to psychology and psychological research. Each chapter clearly and systematically covers a key area, ranging from research ethics through quantitative methods to complex designs and qualitative analysis. I highly recommend this book to anybody who would like a good understanding of basic research methods and statistics in psychology and related disciplines' - Dr David Popplewell, University of Oxford
