Rachel’s Corner: Reviewer’s Guide

Senior Research Methodologist Rachel Lovell finds and reviews new research tools and resources to save you time and frustration. If you have one you love to use that might help others, or if you’re looking for a tool to solve a specific research problem, let us know.

Ever hear of an idea that makes you think, “Man, I wish I’d thought of that”? Well, The Reviewer’s Guide to Quantitative Methods (edited by Gregory R. Hancock, and Ralph O. Mueller) is that idea.  This book is designed for evaluators of quantitative manuscripts and proposals in the social sciences but is also very helpful for authors in preparing high-quality manuscripts.

If you’re wondering what exactly should and shouldn’t be reported and where to include it, this is the book for you. Thirty-one techniques and methods are discussed with each chapter following the same structure. Each chapter is written by an expert in a particular quantitative method. More information on the book, including the Table of Contents, can be found here.
