9788132110156: Methodological Thinking

Methodological Thinking: Basic Principles of Social Research Design focuses on the underlying logic of social research and encourages students to understand research methods as a way of thinking. The book provides an overview of the basic principles of social research, including the foundations of research (data, concepts, theory), the characteristics of research questions, the importance of literature reviews, measurement (conceptualization and operationalization), data generation techniques (experiments, surveys, interviews, observation, document analysis), and sampling. The text is organized to help students become good consumers and producers of research by developing skills to design small-scale research projects and evaluate research done by others. The author highlights the relationships among various components of research; she also explains that it is not possible to argue that one form of research is better than any other and that good researchers understand the differences among and appreciate the capabilities of different tools. Key Features Takes an interdisciplinary approach, with examples in criminology/criminal justice, sociology, political science/international relations, and social work Offers a balanced account of theoretical perspectives, providing students with an unbiased presentation Minimizes technical details of social research design to emphasize logic and general principles Explore the open-access Student Study Site, which features the full versions of the journal articles that are referenced throughout the book.

Review :

Methodological Thinking is a highly accessible, practical guide to the often-intimidating process of designing a research project. An excellent starting point for an undergraduate course in social research fundamentals, full of useful examples and uncomplicated explanations of the starting stages of the research process.--Adam Driscoll

This concise, approachable book with clear examples from published articles is a useful supplement to long, detailed, technical methodology texts that students sometimes find overwhelming and inaccessible.--Tracy L. Johns

The second edition of Methodological Thinking has only improved upon the first edition, by focusing more attention on critical issues related to sampling and ethics, along with a broader examination of the epistemology underlying social science research. This book is useful as a "go-to" reference on designing social science research and is excellent as a primary text at all levels of college.--Todd L. Matthews

Methodological Thinking helps students move past their preconceptions of research to critically engage in research design while enhancing skills that will help them evaluate information in their daily lives.--Joseph V. Ross
