Research Design and Methods: A Process Approach takes students through the research process, from getting and developing a research idea, to designing and conducting a study, through analyzing and reporting data. Information on the research process is presented in a lively and engaging way, highlighting the numerous decisions that must be made when designing and conducting research and emphasizing the importance of ethical conduct, both in the treatment of research subjects and in the conduct of research and reporting research results.

Designs have underpinned much of the technological and industrial innovation of recent years. They have become increasingly valuable within the portfolio of intellectual property rights. Indeed, given the extent to which economic growth is driven by these advancements and the ever-increasing financial benefits of holding exclusive exploitation rights for the most significant designs, the importance of protecting such designs cannot be understated.International Design Protection is an international compendium of design law in 30 major jurisdictions. It covers the applicability of registered and unregistered design rights and ancillary protection by copyright and trademarks. It also deals with the practicalities of design protections and the enforcement of design rights, including qualification for protection, infringement, design infringement litigation, licensing and exploitation.Written by a team of leading specialists in design law, this updated second edition reflects recent developments across a number of jurisdictions and is an essential practical guide to navigating this complex and fascinating field.
Many books focus on individual differences and how those relate to traffic safety such as accident proneness, gender differences, age, alcohol, and the effects of drugs. Others focus on the safety effects regarding the vehicle such as airbags, anti-lock brakes, navigation systems, intelligent cruise control and other new gadgets coming to the vehicle. Even though these topics are undoubtedly important for traffic safety, this book takes a unique approach as it focuses solely on the road environment. Designing Safe Road Systems provides the background for those who want to know more about the effects of road design on driving behaviour. It uses a systems approach to allow a better understanding of why and in what circumstances drivers may commit errors. This understanding will ultimately lead to road systems that prevent (fatal) errors from occurring. The book contains an overview of the current models and theories about human performance and human behaviour in traffic that are relevant for all those involved in designing safe road systems. The central theme of this book is how design principles can reduce the probability of an error while driving. The authors demonstrate how knowledge of human factors helps a road authority to better understand how road users behave. They argue that in many cases the design of the environment can be further adjusted to human capabilities, and that safety should be considered a system property to be built into the road system.
