Research Methods in Practice offers a combination of academic weight, coupled clarity and an easy to follow style that will allow students and practitioners to take their research skills to a level otherwise considered unrealistic.  If students are looking to purchase one text that will provide sound coverage of research methods coupled with examples that provide clarity of application this is it.

The text is very well organized.  Often reading research methods texts can lead to more confusion than the student originally had.  This text, by contrast is presented in a clear, logical, tool box approach. 

(Matthew Cooper)

Remler and Van Ryzin have filled a void that has too long complicated the job of teaching statistical methods and research design to graduate students of applied social science and public policy.


I believe this is the best text available for teaching students the fundamentals of research design and statistics, and introducing them to the difficulties inherent in evaluation research and causal inference.

(Dave E. Marcotte)

What do you get when you cross writings from an electrical engineering-health economist (Dahlia Remler) with a psychologist-geographer (Gregg Van Ryzin)? An eclectic array of fundamental ideas on research portrayed and measured across multidisciplinary domains, i.e., Research Methods in Practice. Just about every topic you might consider for developing theory and building research questions, to formulating knowledge and identifying relevant methods is discussed. Accordingly, experimental approaches, data analyses, and research methods are exposed to the reader in a clear, concise fashion.  


Research Methods in Practice is the go-to book for that quick start in learning how to do research.

(Gary Langford)

The strengths of this text include the many contemporary references to current events, the language and graphics. The strength is also the simplicity (which is effective) of research, that we do it daily and that it should not be seen as a laborious task (although it may be), but rather as a necessary part of whatever we plan to do in life as scholars, researchers, civil servants, doctors, lawyers, social workers, etc. The ease of applicability of research and the research process as a deliberate, strategic, systematic way to gather credible and useable data/information is one of the most effective aspects of the textbook. (Khadijah O. Miller)

This is a well-organized book that deals with a good number of issues. It develops the discussion into an appropriate depth for the students on undergraduate and post graduate programmes without confusion.


[This book] gives the student the opportunity to see things in a different way from the standard texts.

(Sue Lillyman)

Reseña del editor:

The textbook emphasizes the critical interpretation and practical application of research findings, and covers many cutting-edge issues and methods including:

  • a more in-depth, contemporary focus on causation the logic and use of control variables with non-experimental data
  • the use of visual path diagrams to better understand both causation and the use of control variables
  • a fuller, more innovative treatment of quasi and natural experiments
  • a focus on data collection for performance measurement
  • a discussion of cutting-edge issues in sampling and survey research
  • an integrated treatment of qualitative methods that appears throughout the book and emphasizes the integration of qualitative with quantitative methods.
