"During and since the Great War, interest in research in this country has spread, rapidly, beyond the walls of a few scattered academic chambers and the occasional government bureaus and business enterprises which were first to see the necessity of discovering new light concerning the problems that arose in connection with their immediate affairs. But this growth in research pursuits has not greatly stimulated the production of literature which serves to answer the question of how to do research work. Such literature as exists, or is being written, seldom explains in understandable terms the fundamental tool of research, method, in relation to the actual procedure of discovering and solving research problems. Most treatments are devoted either intensively to statistical methods or to the description of "psychological laws," presumed to furnish the basis of method in doing things. This book has been written, primarily, to provide the research worker with a method of procedure from the beginning to the end of a research undertaking, and, secondly, to offer suggestions concerning the mental processes involved and statistical devices that may be used in handling the data"--Preface.
