Multivariate Applications Series

Series Editor: Lisa L. Harlow

This series of books was developed to encourage the use of rigorous methodology in the study of meaningful scientific issues and to describe the applications in easy-to understand language.

Sponsored by the Society of Multivariate Experimental Psychology (http://www.smep.org/ ), it welcomes methodological applications from a variety of disciplines, such as psychology, public health, sociology, education, and business.

Authored or edited volumes should feature one of several approaches:

  1. the application of a variety of multivariate methods to a single, major area of research;
  2. a methodological procedure or framework that could be applied to a variety of research areas; or
  3. a variety of perspectives on a controversial topic of interest to applied researchers.

Interested persons should e-mail: Lisa L. Harlow - LHarlow@uri.edu .
