Guides readers through the quantitative data analysis process including contextualizing data within a research situation, connecting data to the appropriate statistical tests, and drawing valid conclusions.
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the field, the Encyclopedia is divided not only by chronological and geographic boundaries, but also by related subfields such as agricultural history, demographic history, business history, and the histories of technology, migration, and transportation. The articles, all written and signed by international contributors, include scholars from Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Covering economic history in all areas of the world and segments of economies from prehistoric times to the present,

AR provides scholarly review articles that may serve as starting points for research, or to keep up with research trends in a field. Each article attempts to convey the research output of a discipline or topic, and reports the nature of the research, in terms of its empirical findings, theoretical development, methodology or historical development.
Provides authoritative, foundational, interdisciplinary knowledge across the wide range of behavioral and social sciences fields
Discusses history, current trends and future directions
Topics are cross-referenced with related topics and each article highlights further reading
This longstanding, scholarly publication is the go-to place for background on any topic in economics, because its articles are written by experts who provide for each entry an overview of theory and the current state of research.
The online edition of The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics contains the full text of the 8 volume print edition. In addition, the online Dictionary is a dynamic resource for economists which contains hyperlinked cross-references within articles, features carefully selected and maintained links to related sites, incorporates quarterly additions and updates, and offers search and browse facilities, both full text and advanced.

CRC Press produces reference & regular books in the sciences. This subset points to the online statistics resources in economics, including Introduction to Spatial Econometrics, Linear Model Methodology and Diagnostic Checks in Time Series. Example:
Handbook of Field Experiments, V2 explains how to conduct experimental research, presents a catalog of research to date, and describes which areas remain to be explored. The new volume includes sections on field experiments in education in developing countries, how to design social protection programs, a section on how to combat poverty, and updates on data relating to the impact and determinants of health levels in low-income countries. This ongoing series will be of particular interest to scholars working with experimental methods. Users will find results from politics, education, and more.
This handbook provides a comprehensive resource for instructors and researchers in economics, both new and experienced. Learn more about course content design, pedagogic techniques, and the scholarship of the teaching.
Topics covered are wide-ranging, including:
This tutorial covers using R in the field of panel data econometrics. Illustrated throughout with examples in econometrics, political science, agriculture and epidemiology, it presents classic methodology and applications as well as more advanced topics and recent developments in this field including error component models, spatial panels and dynamic models. The authors have developed the software programming in R and host replicable material on the book's accompanying website.
The modern subject of mathematical finance has undergone considerable development, both in theory and practice, since the seminal work of Black and Scholes appeared a third of a century ago. This book is intended as an introduction to some elements of the theory that will enable students and researchers to go on to read more advanced texts and research papers.

"The Marketing Scales Handbooks are the longest-running series that provide reviews of multi-item measures used in scholarly studies of consumer behavior. This volume picks up where Volume 7 ended and has reviews of 392 new scales that were reported in top marketing journal articles published in 2012 and 2013. Each review has information about a scale's source, its psychometric quality, who has used it, and the questions/statements that compose the measure. The bulk of the scales in Volume 8 have to do with topics typical to the series such as brands, advertising, shopping, emotion, e-commerce, and health. Other topics in this volume were less covered in previous volumes and have to do with environmental issues (recycling and green products), word-of-mouth activity, international commerce issues (fair trade and off-shoring), and game-playing.The book is a valuable resource to researchers in a variety of fields who want reliable measures for use in their studies of consumers or similar types of participants such as viewers, clients, patients, or citizens. Instead of using simplistic measures of dubious quality or, at the other extreme, having to build and refine measures from scratch, researchers can use the book's contents to learn from the experts who have already vetted the quality of the measures. By using better scales, accuracy is increased and should improve the decisions based upon the results."
"Articles for the Online Encyclopedia are written by experts, screened by a group of authorities, and carefully edited. A distinguished Advisory Board recommends entry topics, assists in the selection of authors, and defines the project's scope."
This encyclopedia contains nearly 900 entries about topics related to the social and ethical aspects of business. Entries cover theory (agency theory, stakeholder theory, corporate social responsibility), recent events (Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002), topics (consumers, environment), and people of historical significance to the field (Milton Friedman).
This encyclopedia offers entries for all aspects of organizations: structure, process, practices. Topics relate to pschology, business, sociology, polical science, philosophy and more. Topical treatment includes all aspects of theory and the encyclopedia is international in scope.
