Description

Research Methods in Occupational Health Psychology: Measurement, Design, and Data Analysis provides a state-of-the-art review of current issues and best practices in the science of Occupational Health Psychology. Occupational Health Psychology (OHP) is a multidisciplinary and rapidly growing area of research and it is difficult or impossible for researchers to keep up with developments in all of the fields where scholars conduct OHP science. This book will help OHP scholars improve their own research by translating recent innovations in methodology into sets of concrete recommendations that will help scholars improve their own research as well as their training of future researchers.
