Social Science Research Design and Statistics

Social Science Research Design and Statistics, the first digital textbook released from Watertree Press, topped Amazon’s Hot New Releases in Computer Software eBook category this week. Simultaneously, the paperback edition reached number two in Amazon’s Hot New Releases in Social Sciences Research.

Social Science Research Design and Statistics: A Practitioner's Guide to Research Methods and SPSS Analysis by Alfred P. Rovai, Jason D. Baker, and Michael K. Ponton is a new college-level research and statistics handbook offered a fraction of the cost of a used textbook. The digital textbook versions for Kindle and Nook retail at $9.99 while corresponding print edition is priced at only $29.95, a fraction of the cost of most statistics textbooks and cheaper than many used textbook rentals. With both the eBook and print versions reaching the top five in their respective hot new releases categories simultaneously, this new publication is meeting the need for academic quality at consumer prices.

Social Science Research Design and Statistics integrates social science research methods and the descriptions of 46 univariate, bivariate, and multivariate tests to include a description of the purpose, assumptions, example research question and hypothesis, SPSS procedure, and interpretation of SPSS output for each test. Included throughout the book are various sidebars highlighting key points, images and SPSS screenshots to assist understanding the material presented, self-test reviews at the end of each chapter, a decision tree to facilitate identification of the proper statistical test, examples of SPSS output with accompanying analysis and interpretations, links to relevant web sites, and a comprehensive glossary. Underpinning all these features is a concise, easy to understand explanation of the material.

The handy guide to social science research and statistics has been praised for its clarity and accessibility. According to Franco Gandolfi, Dean of the School of Business at California Baptist University, “Social Science Research Design and Statistics is a well sequenced, well organized introduction to the world of social science research design and statistics. It is a unique gift to students, teachers, researchers, and consultants.” Reviewers on have described the book as “a valuable research and statistics handbook” and “a real world professional's handbook.”
