Overview

The Routledge Handbook of Research Methods in Applied Linguistics provides a critical survey of the methodological concepts, designs, instruments and types of analysis that are used within the broad field of applied linguistics. With more than 40 chapters written by leading and emerging scholars, this book problematizes and theorizes applied linguistics research, incorporating numerous multifaceted methodological considerations and pointing to the future of good practice in research. Topics covered include: key concepts and constructs in research methodology, such as sampling strategies and mixed methods research; research designs such as experimental research, case study research, and action research; data collection methods, from questionnaires and interviews to think-aloud protocols and data elicitation tasks; data analysis methods, such as use of R, inferential statistical analysis, and qualitative content analysis; current considerations in applied linguistics research, such as a need for transparency and greater incorporation of multilingualism in research; and recent innovations in research methods related to multimodality, eye-tracking, and advances in quantitative methods. The Routledge Handbook of Research Methods in Applied Linguistics is key reading for both experienced and novice researchers in Applied Linguistics as well as anyone undertaking study in this area.

Reviews

This book will rapidly become a go-to text for research methods in applied linguistics. Its topics cover the full range of issues researchers are likely to face, and the discussions are written by leading authorities in the field. A wonderful up-to-date resource. Tim McNamara, The University of Melbourne, Australia An exceedingly timely volume of vast and enduring relevance, Rose and McKinley have produced a text of great value and importance to the field. The book-in both its sum and its parts-manages to balance breadth and depth of coverage while remaining an indispensably accessible resource for advancing the methodological knowledge of novices as well as experienced scholars. Luke Plonsky, Northern Arizona University, USA
