Research design can be daunting for all types of researchers. At its heart it might be described as a formalized approach toward problem solving, thinking, and acquiring knowledge—the success of which depends upon clearly defined objectives and appropriate choice of statistical tools, tests, and analysis to meet a project's objectives.
Comprising more than 500 entries, the Encyclopedia of Research Design explains how to make decisions about research design, undertake research projects in an ethical manner, interpret and draw valid inferences from data, and evaluate experiment design strategies and results. Two additional features carry this encyclopedia far above other works in the field: bibliographic entries devoted to significant articles in the history of research design and reviews of contemporary tools, such as software and statistical procedures, used to analyze results.
- Covers the spectrum of research design strategies, from material presented in introductory classes to topics necessary in graduate research
- Addresses cross- and multidisciplinary research needs, with many examples drawn from the social and behavioral sciences, neurosciences, and biomedical and life sciences
- Provides summaries of advantages and disadvantages of often-used strategies
- Uses hundreds of sample tables, figures, and equations based on real-life cases

Have you read and reread the “Harry Potter” books? Are you someone who can quote the movies by heart? Do you still ever wonder when you will get your acceptance letter into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?
As a diehard and proud Potterhead, my heart warms every time I hear the main theme music, “Hedwig’s theme.” Like many of you, I have been sorted on Pottermore (House Slytherin) and I have my wand (Willow, 10-inch unicorn hair) and robes. And for me, like for so many of you, the “Harry Potter” series has been life changing.
I always wanted to write a book specific to Harry Potter, my favorite fandom, and one, which undoubtedly has influenced me, the most. I decided that I would like to write a self-help book for you, my fellow Harry Potter fans to help you better manage you anxiety, depression, trauma, insecurity, and other difficulties. I hope that you will join me on an enchanting exploration how “Harry Potter” series can help us heal and find the magic in our own lives.
The proceeds of this book will be donated to mental health charities, such as Crisis Text Line and RAINN, as well as Lumos and the Good Samaritan organization

T'Challa the Black Panther won over audiences with one of the most popular comic book movies of all time. The film's success shines a spotlight on hopes and values across cultures and throughout the world because, in spite of the fantastic details and royal intrigue, the hero's story is deeply human. In Black Panther Psychology: Hidden Kingdoms, Dr. Travis Langley brings together a variety of experts to examine the character both in motion pictures and throughout his rich comic book history. Among the topics they explore:
- Cultural differences
- Balancing individual and collective identity
- Isolationism and its consequences
- Family bonds and intergenerational trauma
- Gender issues, including masculine rivalry and women in combat
- Why this kind of hero is important to us all
What kind of person actively enters dangerous situations and takes extreme risks to help others? Who suffers the worst after great losses and who grows stronger? How might vision interfere with how we comprehend sounds, smells, and other sensory cues? When are we more likely to become heroic and when will we commit unkind acts - in other words, when do we follow the devil on one shoulder or the angel on the other? And how about the hero who tries to balance both?
