Research methods and statistics are central to the development of professional competence and evidence based psychological practice. Furthermore, the ability to interpret and apply research findings contributes to the development of psychological literacy, the primary outcome of an undergraduate education in psychology. Despite this, many psychology students express little interest in, and in some cases an active dislike of, learning research methods and statistics.
The aim of this Research Topic is to bring together current research, innovative evidence-based practice and critical discourse related to engaging psychology students in learning quantitative, qualitative and/or mixed methods research. We welcome manuscripts (original research, reviews, commentaries and perspectives) on teaching research methods and statistics to secondary school, undergraduate and/or postgraduate psychology students.


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
