Devlin (psychology, Connecticut College) concentrates on what bogs social science students down the most in their one-semester research projects, namely the practical. In each chapter she shows why conducting research in certain ways works, how to get through the paperwork and other considerations, and how to be more efficient while following all the necessary steps, addressing generating and shaping ideas, conducting research design and making statistical considerations, choosing sources of measures, obtaining subjects, working within ethical considerations and the review process, managing data, writing reports and making presentations.
