The text provides a total instructional system that lays out clear learning targets and then supports students as they practice and develop expertise in both doing and reading research. The 12th Edition includes a new, separate chapter on ethics, expands its coverage of single-subject research, covers the latest digital strategies and tools for doing research, and introduces students to the open source statistics software R -- Provided by the publisher.
