Research Methods in Psychology

Psychology research explores the experiences and behaviors of groups and individuals, and uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to do so. Psychology often uses experimental designs to test hypotheses, which will produce data requiring statistical analysis.  Other types of data generated might be phenomenological or discursive narratives describing subjects’ inner lives and experiences of their mental states. For an introduction to doing quantitative psychological research, try The SAGE Handbook of Quantitative Methods in Psychology.
