Order the Enhanced and Revised KB

The latest revised and expanded version of the KB textbook, Research Methods: The Essential Knowledge Base (2016) is now available for purchase in a variety of formats. I've rewritten the book cover-to-cover with two of my favorite colleagues, Jim Donnelly and Kanika Arora. There are entire sections and chapters that are not included in this free online website and all of the material from this site has been updated and expanded. The new version can be purchased in a complete color paperback edition, as a rental, in electronic form as an eBook, and you can even purchase individual electronic chapters as eChapters! In addition, we have a unique and comprehensive online study guide that you can purchase access to that is an indespensible aid for students enrolled in courses or for the lifelong learner who wants to pursue a comprehensive course in research methods on your own. You can find purchasing info for this new Essential KB at:

  • Research Methods: The Essential Knowledge Base, 2nd Edition. This is an updated, expanded and comprehensive version of this website that is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate courses in social research methods and for professionals who wish to have a refresher or reference guide. You can purchase the KB Essential here in a complete color paperback edition, as a rental, in electronic form as an eBook, and you can even purchase individual electronic chapters as eChapters.
  • Ressearch Methods: The Essential Knowledge Base Online Study Guide. This is a revolutionary online resource that uses the MindTap(R) platform and is fully integrated with the text. It provides the complete text plus a comprehensive system for learning the material that includes a range of study tools (flashcards, quizzes), a note-taking capability, the ability to print sections of the text, and will even read the text out loud!
