Essentials of Research Methods in Criminal Justice and Criminology, 2/e

Frank E. Hagan

ISBN: 0205507557

 

Adapted from Frank Hagan's best-selling Research Methods in Criminal Justice and Criminology, this new text offers a complete introduction to qualitative and quantitative research for criminal justice in a manageable and reader-friendly format. The text emphasizes sources and resources of classic and contemporary research in the field. Also, the text uses criminological and criminal justice studies to illustrate research, methods, so readers can become familiar with examples of research in the field and learn fundamental research skills.

 

Readers of this text will learn about:

- How to do research  both qualitative and quantitative. Readers will read and learn from classic and contemporary research examples in criminal justice and criminology.

- The importance of ethics in research.

- The importance of research. Readers will become familiar with various designs.

 

 

New to this edition:

        A new chapter, Chapter 11, “Policy Analysis and Evaluation Research” has been added. This is a great chapter for readers to see the latest thinking by NIJ and federal agencies in determining which programs work, which do not, and which are promising. 

        Discussion of the Campbell Collaboration has been added. The Campbell Collaboration is an international effort to examine existing program evaluations in order to determine “what works” in crime prevention.  For example: Project Dare and Boot Camps do not work; Drug Courts seem to have been met with success.

        Chapter 11 has added discussion of the Blueprints of Successful Program Implementation, a program that determines “what works” in delinquency prevention. 

        The issue of plagiarism is explored in more depth in Chapter 2 in a new figure that specifies in greater detail types of conduct that constitute plagiarism.

        Greater discussion is offered on Internet research:

        Ethical aspects of Internet research (Chapter 5, Figure 5.11)

        Competitive intelligence as a research skill (Chapter 8)

        Spotting bogus research (Figure 9.1)

        New hybrid techniques for doing Internet research by combining it with traditional methods (Chapter 5)
