Advising on research methods
More information: www.jvank.nl/ARMSelected2011 This book results from a research master course Methodological Advice that was given at the University of Amsterdam, fall 2011. The objectives of this course are: (a) to acquire methodological knowledge that is needed for advising researchers in the behavioral and social sciences, and (b) to get experience with methodological consultancy. The students get various assignments, one of which was to write a paper on a topic that may come up during methodological consultancy. Paper topics were selected from a long list of relevant methodological issues. The student who selected the topic was the first author and he or she was assisted by a co-author (one of the other students). The intended audience of the book are fellow research master students who give methodological advice on research in the behavioral and social sciences, such as is done in methodology shops of Dutch psychology departments.
