Praise for the Third Edition:

“I have used the older edition with great success. The new one is even better.”
-Kathleen Duncan, University of La Verne

The Third Edition of the bestselling text Research Design by John W. Creswell enables readers to compare three approaches to research-qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods-in a single research methods text. The book presents these three approaches side by side within the context of the process of research from the beginning steps of philosophical assumptions to the writing and presenting of research. Written in a user-friendly manner, Creswell's text does not rely on technical jargon. He cuts to the core of what a reader needs to know to read and design research in part by showcasing ideas in a scaffold approach so that the reader understands ideas from the simple to the complex.

Key updates to the Third Edition

  • Presents the preliminary steps of using philosophical assumptions in the beginning of the book
  • Provides an expanded discussion on ethical issues
  • Emphasizes new Web-based technologies for literature searches
  • Offers updated information about mixed methods research procedures
  • Contains a glossary of terms
  • Highlights “research tips” throughout the chapters incorporating the author’s experiences over the last 35 years

Research Design, Third Edition appeals to students taking research design and research methods classes throughout the social and behavioral sciences-from undergraduates to the most advanced doctoral programs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Invaluable for researchers and PhD students 23. Mai 2009
Von Layla Halabi - Veröffentlicht auf
I initially bought this book when I writing the proposal for my PhD about three years ago and Cresswell's little gem proved invaluable during that time. The book is very well written and unlike other books on the topic, Cresswell is not content with explaining theory and providing examples but goes further to provide excellent templates for the process, writing, structure, and format of every phase of the research process. These 'templates,' coupled with a clear writing style and an excellent, logical structure, elevate the book from 'very useful' to 'invaluable' in my opinion.

For example, in chapter 4: The Introduction, he begins by explaining the purpose of the Introduction and its importance and then provides models for writing introduction in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research. This format is mirrored in almost every chapter including Chapter 2: Review of the literature where he provides an excellent process for maximizing the effectiveness of the initial literature review process. In Chapter 5, he simplifies purpose statements with step-by-step guidelines for the three methodologies while in Chapter 6 he does the same for the research questions and hypotheses.

While Cresswell is an Educational Researcher himself, he does not limit the examples in the book to his field but endeavors to include samples from the social and human sciences including justice, management, psychology, sociology and marketing. These numerous examples throughout every chapter of the book serve to illustrate the templates and guidelines effectively, leaving little doubt in the reader's mind on the 'how' of applying the guidelines.

Overall, this is the best of the pick if you need clear, straightforward guidelines on writing a proposal or planning your research project. If you are considering a Mixed Methods methodolgy, then I would strongly recommend Creswell's other book, written with Vicki Clark, Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book for Beginning Researchers 14. November 2009
Von Jody Maloney - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
My impression of "Research Design" is that Creswell sincerely wanted readers to understand how to conduct thorough research with confidence. While I focused more on the chapters on qualitative and mixed-methods research, the quantitative chapter was equally easy to understand as the more inquiry-based methods. As an education student, I've always feared doing quantitative research, however this book makes it as available and comprehensible as either of the other two methods discussed. However, I would venture to guess that if you were in a highly technical field, this book would not suffice to supply you with the complete methodologies to conduct quantitative research.
The author conveniently structures each chapter with the learner in mind. For each section of the book, Creswell supplies easy to follow steps and checklists for students and researchers to cover most angles of research. At the completion of each chapter (all of which are short and easy to digest), there is a small section on writing practice to provide practical application for the reader who might not have a professor to rely on for further instruction, or for the professor who wants an easy, practical assignment right from the text. I studied this book independently, and while I feel a second read through might be in order, it was absolutely easy to understand and useful in my independent study.
I recommend this book for its straightforward style and practical approach to conducting basic research.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Fraught with Misinformation (from a peer) 2. Dezember 2011
Von Psydea - Veröffentlicht auf
I find myself in the unfortunate position of using this textbook to teach a course in mixed methods research. I have been conducting and teaching research for over 30 years and have never encountered a book so fraught with incorrect information and self serving opinions. This book could not possibly have been thoroughly peer reviewed. Creswell is confusing my students by inventing new terms for old concepts and suggesting that these concepts (not just the terms) originated with him. He is also using existing terminology in his own unique way, further confusing students that are struggling with the language of research. He indicates that causality is demonstrated by qualitative research themes when experienced researchers would be tenuous about discussing possible relationships. His cookbook approach severely limits the range of research opportunities by suggesting that these are the only available valid methods. This book might be a simple read for new researchers, but it actually adds confusion rather than clarity to a difficult field of study.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Back to school 29. Juli 2010
Von Copper92 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was required for a Master's research class. It is detailed, but easy to read, and I read every page! This is one for the bookcase, if you're involved in research report writing, you'll want this around as a reference.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For Dissertation Students 10. Juni 2009
Von Frank C. - Veröffentlicht auf
Excellent book for dissertation students needing additional information with examples to make their paper better. The author makes it very simple for average students to understand the concepts and theories that exist for each required section for a successful dissertation. The author also explains the information for Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed Methods users which I feel is very helpful for a clear understanding in all areas. This book is worth the buy.
