 Beyond Significance Testing: Statistics Reform in the Behavioral Sciences, Second Edition 2013  By Rex B. Kline, PhD

“This accessibly written book reviews the controversy about significance testing, which has now crossed various disciplines as diverse as psychology, ecology, commerce, education, and biology, among others. It also introduces readers to alternative methods, especially effect size estimation (at both the group and case levels) and interval estimation (confidence intervals) in comparative studies. Basics of bootstrapping and Bayesian estimation are also considered. Research examples from substance abuse, education, learning, and other areas illustrate how to apply these methods.”

Human Information Processing: Vision, Memory, and Attention 2013  Edited by Charles Chubb, PhD; Barbara A. Dosher, PhD; Zhong-Lin Lu, PhD; and Richard M. Shiffrin, PhD

“This book focuses on three topics within the field of cognitive psychology that directly influence human information processing: vision, memory, and attention.  Inspired by the work of George Sperling, a renowned expert in cognitive science and an early pioneer in the study of human information processing, the contributors to this book examine new computational models and methodologies. They study concepts such as the effects of human eye movements on our interpretation of visual stimuli to demonstrate how vision, memory, and attention are interlinked, and how they influence how we learn. The contributors also describe real-world applications for research, including technological innovations that can augment our senses and help us derive more information from our environment.”

Reform of Eyewitness Identification Procedures 2013  Edited by Brian L. Cutler, PhD

In this book the author “narrows his focus to the most important single factor underlying many innocent convictions: mistaken eyewitness identifications.”
