Publisher Comments:

Critique social research with ease with PRIMER FOR CRITIQUING SOCIAL RESEARCH: A STUDENT GUIDE! In a simple, hands-on manner, this text helps you develop the analytical tools and critical thinking skills you need to successfully critique social research. Critiquing is made easy with a book-specific website which offers frequently asked questions, an evaluation template, and other information about the text and its use.

Book News Annotation:

Rather than a methods text, Holosko (social work, U. of Windsor, Ontario, Canada) offers students of various fields an analytic tool for critiquing both quantitative and qualitative research reports. This supplementary text includes evaluation templates, resources, and suggested further reading on using software in qualitative research. Not indexed. A supporting website is available.
