Donald R. McCreary and Joan C. Chrisler The Development of Gender Studies in Psychology Studies of sex differences are as old as the ?eld of psychology, and they have been conducted in every sub?eld of the discipline. There are probably many reasons for the popularity of these studies, but three reasons seem to be most prominent. First, social psychological studies of person perception show that sex is especially salient in social groups. It is the ?rst thing people notice about others, and it is one of the things we remember best (Fiske, Haslam, & Fiske, 1991; Stangor, Lynch, Duan, & Glass, 1992). For example, people may not remember who uttered a witty remark, but they are likely to remember whether the quip came from a woman or a man. Second, many people hold ?rm beliefs that aspects of physiology suit men and women for particular social roles. Men’s greater upper body strength makes them better candidates for manual labor, and their greater height gives the impression that they would make good leaders (i. e. , people we look up to). Women’s reproductive capacity and the caretaking tasks (e. g. , breastfeeding, baby minding) that accompany it make them seem suitable for other roles that require gentleness and nurturance. Third, the logic that underlies hypothesis testing in the sciences is focused on difference. Researchers design their studies with the hope that they can reject the null hypothesis that experimental groups do not differ.

In The Process of Research in Psychology: Second Edition, an introductory textbook, Dawn M. McBride utilizes numerous examples from published research and the pedagogical approach of spaced repetition to provide a step-by-step explanation of how to design, conduct, and present a research study in psychology. Early chapters introduce important concepts for developing research ideas, subject sampling, ethics, and data collection to help students understand the process of research. Subsequent "Nuts and Bolts" chapters provide more detailed coverage of these topics and examine the various types of research relevant to the field of psychology. This approach creates a logical scaffolding upon which students can build their knowledge and allows for an easy-to-read, concise format that provides students with the appropriate information required to do research in psychology!

This collection of 14 original articles teaches readers how to conduct qualitative research. Instead of characterizing and justifying certain methods, the contributors show by means of actual research studies what assumptions, procedures, and dilemmas they encountered. Fischer's introduction, which emphasizes the practical nature of qualitative research and the closing chapter, which uses a question-and-answer format to investigate, among other subjects, what is scientific about qualitative research, are complemented by a glossary and other features that increase the book's utility and value. * Addresses a range of practical examples from different traditions such as phenomology, grounded theory, ethnography and discourse analysis through actual case studies * Discusses various methodology and combinations of methods like assimilation analysis, dialogal approach, intuitive inquiry, and conceptual encounter * Terms are defined within chapters and/or in a glossary * Helps readers bridge from experimental to qualitative methods * Provides in-depth, philosophically grounded, and compelling research findings * Includes practical introduction about steps in qualitative research
