Summary

This handy reference text provides undergraduate students with a practical introduction to research methodology. Doing Economics makes students aware of what experienced researchers know implicitly: research is fundamentally a process of constructing persuasive arguments supported by theory and empirical evidence. As a result, students learn how to implement critical-reading, writing, and online research skills to produce valid and reliable research. Numerous examples (including scholarly writing and student samples) help to highlight what does and does not work in research. Boxes feature tips and guidelines for novice researchers on a variety of topics, including how to read research critically. End-of-chapter exercises provide unique activities and opportunities for students to apply what they have learned. A textbook web site serves as both a clearinghouse and reference center for writing and research in economics.
