Book Review: Research Methods in Human-Computer Interaction

 

This book highlights the importance of using quantitative and qualitative research methods together to address research questions more effectively. It provides the audience with guidance in the selection of appropriate methods for issues related to HCI. Even though provided examples are particularly associated with the HCI, scholars in other disciplines are likely to be familiar with those examples as well. The book is devoted to a particular field of study; however, it resembles a social science research reference in many ways. Thus, it may serve both novice and expert researchers in related fields. In brief, the source is quite easy to read and useful for the application of research methods in HCI. Actual implication samples and practical hints are particularly useful in transforming our theoretical background into practical solutions in the field.
