Research Methods in Applied Behavior Analysis, 3rd Edition is a practical and accessible text that provides the beginning researcher with a clear description of how behavior analysts conduct applied research and submit it for publication. In a sequence of ten logical steps, this text covers the elements of single-case research design and the practices involved in organizing, implementing, and evaluating research studies. This revision covers important new topics for consideration when designing a study including ecological validity, procedural fidelity, and the consecutive controlled case series design which includes replications of single-cases, and the statistical analysis of accumulated studies. Included also are chapter summaries, specific tips for master’s and doctoral researchers as well as recommended procedures for BCBA consultants.

“Research Methods in Applied Behavior Analysis, 3rd edition, provides a step-by-step guide to the frequent and complex decisions involved in behavioral research. Bailey and Burch infuse their many years of research mentorship into this text, which is as relevant to the novice researcher as it is to the doctoral student honing their skills toward independent research. Uniquely, this text offers tips on navigating the organizational systems (clinical, educational, etc.) that serve as the backbone of behavioral research. Wisdom, logic, and good science fill the pages of this helpful guide.” Tara Fahmie, PhD, Associate professor, University of Nebraska Medical Center, USA “The 3rd edition of Research Methods in Applied Behavior Analysis is a goldmine of tactics and strategies for graduate students and behavior analysts in the roles of consultant and supervisor. Bailey and Burch present a 10-step sequence that sets the course for developing, implementing, and evaluating a successful research project. Other chapters outline steps towards selecting research design, overcoming procedural barriers, and publishing findings. A model of clarity and practical advice, the book is a one-of-a-kind resource to learn fundamental behavior analysis research skills.” James K. Luiselli, EdD, Director of Clinical Development and Research, Melmark New England, Andover, MA, USA
