About this book

Introduction

Introducing Psychological Research provides readable and full summaries of over sixty major research studies in psychology. These illustrate the major themes of the subject and the major methodologies that psychologists use. The summaries provide enough detail for readers to make their own evaluation of the quality of the research and the conclusions that can be drawn from it. They are the next best thing to reading the original papers, often written in very dense academic style, and provide a readable and accessible account of some famous psychological studies - warts and all! Each study is preceded by a brief background that puts the study in an appropriate context and the summary of the study includes methodological details and major findings. At the end of each summary there are some questions (and answers!) to help the reader evaluate and draw out the key issues from each study.
