While philosophers ponder life’s big questions and poets play with words to convey their ideas, psychologists carry out scientific research. They have many options: observe people, ask people questions or set up conditions to see how people react. In broad terms, psychologists generate answers to research questions through either quantitative or qualitative methods or by combining both methods. Reading their research studies is an excellent way to learn more about psychology.
This site, Research Digest, aims to showcase psychological science while taking a critical approach to the methods used. The studies they write about are all from peer-reviewed journals. You are encouraged to browse their posts.
