Ideal for research methods courses covering multiple methodologies, this book is the only text that uses a research-as-argument approach to help students become not only more effective researchers but also more insightful consumers of research. The authors treat communication research comprehensively, discussing a broad range of traditional and contemporary methods and considering ethics in designing, conducting, and reporting research. This is the only book on the market that expertlybalances the interpretive, critical, and discovery paradigms. No other research methods book on the market better reflects actual research practice and provides methodological chocies based not on ideological constraints but rather on the nature of the research question.

This text covers basic research issues and both quantitative and qualitative approaches to communication research. The guiding principle of the text is that methodological choices arise from one’s research questions and hypotheses; thus, the text focuses first on the research process, and then discusses the methodological tools for understanding and conducting basic communication research projects. In the second edition, every chapter includes examples based on research from 2002 and thereafter, and revisions improve the balance of quantitative and qualitative research perspectives as well as of data collection and analytical procedures.
