Reviewer’s Guide to Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences - (Hardcover)
About this item
The Reviewer’s Guide to Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences provides evaluators of research manuscripts and proposals in the social and behavioral sciences with the resources they need to read, understand, and assess quantitative work. Thirty-five uniquely structured chapters cover both traditional and emerging methods of quantitative data analysis, which neither junior nor veteran reviewers can be expected to know in detail. The second edition of this valuable resource updates readers on each technique’s key principles, appropriate usage, underlying assumptions and limitations, providing reviewers with the information they need to offer constructive commentary on works they evaluate. Written by methodological and applied scholars, this volume is also an indispensable author’s reference for preparing sound research manuscripts and proposals.
