Data Analysis: Research Methods Literature

Books and Articles about Research Methods

The MSU Libraries have many books and articles about research methodologies in our collections that can help to inform your data analysis choices. Search for books in the library catalog and articles in our databases.

Sage Research Methods is a database dedicated to the research methods literature and is a wonderful resource. However, keep in mind that it is not comprehensive, as it only represents a single (albeit proliferate) publisher of research methods texts.
