READING: `Als Indiana Jones econoom zou zijn, zou hij Steven Levitt heten. Freakonomics leest als een detective. Wall Street Journal Wat is gevaarlijker: een pistool of een zwembad? Wat hebben sumoworstelaars en schoolmeesters gemeen? En waarom wonen drugsdealers bij hun moeder? Het zijn vragen die je niet gauw van een econoom zou verwachten. Maar Steven Levitt is geen typische econoom. In Freakonomics onderzoekt hij met co-auteur Stephen Dubner de verborgen kant van de dingen om ons heen. De geheimen van de Klu Klux Klan, bijvoorbeeld. Of de waarheid over vastgoedmakelaars. En, stelt hij, heeft het dalen van de misdaadcijfers in plaats van met een goed draaiende economie niet eigenlijk alles te maken met de legalisering van abortus? Freakonomics is het leukste en verhelderendste boek over economie dat je je kunt voorstellen. Een mix van essentiële feiten en een meeslepende vertelling, die onze blik op de moderne wereld voorgoed verandert en verscherpt. `Een fascinerend en belangrijk boek, leesbaar, compact en barstensvol informatie over de wereld om ons heen. Wie dit boek over de raadsels van het alledaagse leven heeft gelezen moet wel concluderen: economie is belangrijk, interessant en erg leuk. de Volkskrant `Levitt stelt ongewone vragen en geeft provocatieve antwoorden.

Release Date2008
Genre Psychology
Pages 461
ISBN 0136128750
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This successful introduction to behavioral research methods–written by two leaders in the field–provides step-by-step guidance through the processes of planning an empirical study, analyzing and interpreting data, and reporting findings and conclusions. It encourages readers to be analytical and critical, not only in interpreting research findings, but also in investigating what is behind the claims and conclusions in news reports of scientific results. While the primary emphasis is on behavioral and social research, a strong effort is made to connect these disciplines with the empirical reasoning used in other fields in order to underscore the unity of science. The volume examines behavioral research and scientific method, creative ideas and working hypotheses, ethical considerations and guidelines, observation and measurement, design and implementation, describing data and making inferences, and statistical tests. For those interested in an introduction to research methods.

READING: Now in its fourth edition, Behavioral Research and Analysis: An Introduction to Statistics within the Context of Experimental Design presents an overview of statistical methods within the context of experimental design. It covers fundamental topics such as data collection, data analysis, interpretation of results, and communication of findings. New in the Fourth Edition: Extensive improvements based on suggestions from those using this book in the classroom Statistical procedures that have been developed and validated since the previous edition Each chapter in the body now contains relevant key words, chapter summaries, key word definitions, and end of chapter exercises (with answers) Revisions to include recent changes in the APA Style Manual When looking for a book for their own use, the authors found none that were totally suitable. They found books that either reviewed the basics of behavioral research and experimental design but provided only cursory coverage of statistical methods or they provided coverage of statistical methods with very little coverage of the research context within which these methods are used. No single resource provided coverage of methodology, statistics, and communication skills. In a classic example of necessity being the mother of invention, the authors created their own. This text is ideal for a single course that reviews research methods, essential statistics through multi-factor analysis of variance, and thesis (or major project) preparation without discussion of derivation of equations, probability theory, or mathematic proofs. It focuses on essential information for getting a research project completed without prerequisite math or statistics training. It has been revised many times to help students at a variety of academic levels (exceptional high school students, undergraduate honors students, masters students, doctoral students, and post-doctoral fellows) across varied academic disciplines (e.g., human factors and ergonomics, behavioral and social sciences, natural sciences, engineering, exercise and sport sciences, business and management, industrial hygiene and safety science, health and medical sciences, and more). Illustrating how to plan, prepare, conduct, and analyze an experimental or research report, the book emphasizes explaining statistical procedures and interpreting obtained results without discussing the derivation of equations or history of the method. Destined to spend more time on your desk than on the shelf, the book will become the single resource you reach for again and again when conducting scientific research and reporting it to the scientific community.

Release Date2009-08-03
Genre Social Science
Pages 912
ISBN 0199725179
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This new combination volume of three-books-in-one, dealing with the topic of artifacts in behavioral research, was designed as both introduction and reminder. It was designed as an introduction to the topic for graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and younger researchers. It was designed as a reminder to more experienced researchers, in and out of academia, that the problems of artifacts in behavioral research, that they may have learned about as beginning researchers, have not gone away. For example, problems of experimenter effects have not been solved. Experimenters still differ in the ways in which they see, interpret, and manipulate their data. Experimenters still obtain different responses from research participants (human or infrahuman) as a function of experimenters' states and traits of biosocial, psychosocial, and situational origins. Experimenters' expectations still serve too often as self-fulfilling prophecies, a problem that biomedical researchers have acknowledged and guarded against better than have behavioral researchers; e.g., many biomedical studies would be considered of unpublishable quality had their experimenters not been blind to experimental condition. Problems of participant or subject effects have also not been solved. We usually still draw our research samples from a population of volunteers that differ along many dimensions from those not finding their way into our research. Research participants are still often suspicious of experimenters' intent, try to figure out what experimenters are after, and are concerned about what the experimenter thinks of them.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Wanneer je mensen herinnert aan de tien geboden, zijn ze minder snel geneigd te liegen, ook als het atheïsten zijn. Een aspirientje van een duur merk helpt beter tegen hoofdpijn dan een goedkoop eigen merk, zelfs al zijn de pilletjes identiek. Als we érgens op kunnen rekenen, dan is het wel op de irrationaliteit van menselijk gedrag. En dus maakt het niet uit hoeveel voorlichting een overheid geeft over de gevaren van onbeschermde seks: zodra de opwinding toeslaat, wordt het gezonde verstand overboord gekieperd, zoals Ariely met een amusant experiment laat zien. Waarom we altijd tijd te kort komen toont met verrassende voorbeelden en onderzoeken aan hoe slecht we in staat zijn de juiste beslissingen te nemen en hoe we met dat besef ons voordeel kunnen doen. Net als Malcolm Gladwell slaagt Ariely erin om de nieuwste inzichten over menselijk gedrag voor iedereen bruikbaar te maken

Pages 177
ISBN 9781846639609
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research publishes high quality articles encompassing all areas of accounting that incorporate theory from and contribute knowledge and understanding to the fields of applied psychology, sociology, management science, and economics. The series promotes research that investigates behavioral accounting issues. Volume 11 begins with a review article that compares the strengths and weaknesses of using a single type of research method (archival, behavioral, and qualitative) to investigate accounting phenomenon and explains why using multiple methods provides a richer understanding of particular issues. This article should provide beneficial to a wide range of researchers, not just those interested in using behavioral methodologies. The remaining articles are empirical in nature in and examine a variety of current issues. One article examines whether sophisticated financial statement users' decisions are impacted by differential treatments of stock option compensation costs while another article provides a very interesting investigation of whether investors evaluate corporate ethical behavior as a function of their relative stock market performance. Two articles examine different aspects of auditor performance, with one contrasting the performance gains by industry specialist auditors in regulated versus unregulated industries and another contrasting the perspectives of specific auditors and their colleagues on whether they possessed the attributes of an expert. Another article examines the influence of various factors that impact public accountants' exhaustion, and the final article examines whether balance scorecard performance is differentially affected by financial and nonfinancial measures. These articles are both interesting and insightful and should prove useful in facilitating future behavioral research.

Nunnally of Vanderbilt University remarked, 'Overall, there is no better text on statistics in the behavioral sciences available, and I strongly recommend it.' A new feature is the optional availability of a microcomputer software package, MICRO-ANOVA, that will enable researchers to perform all analyses presented in the text on IBM PCs or equivalent computers. The software package is available through UPA.
