Category: business. It is illustrated with numerous practical examples drawn from multiple social science disciplines and research settings. The authors offer clear guidance for defining constructs, thinking through relationships and processes that link constructs, and deriving new theoretical models or building on existing ones based on those relationships. Step by step, they show readers how to use causal analysis, mathematical modeling, simulations, and grounded and emergent approaches to theory construction. A chapter on writing about theories contains invaluable advice on crafting effective papers and grant applications.
Part 1. Basic Concepts The effective, easy-to-understand and straightforward style of writing is noticeable since from the first pages of the book. The authors put each topic in a superior context and start from a general point, from where newcomers are guided to the scientific way of 'thinking in theories'. The introduction of a theory as an approach to support the understanding of the world is an important foundation that is made extremely intuitive by the authors. The readers can acquire knowledge about basic terminologies and their distinctions, which are made explicit by comprehensive discussions about concepts, constructs and variables, as well as theories, models and hypotheses. The authors state: "The world that we experience is multifaceted, dynamic, unique, and mostly hidden from direct view.

This accessible, hands-on text has now been revised and updated, with expanded coverage of topics including how theory may emerge from exploratory data analysis. The book prepares graduate students, new researchers, and even seasoned investigators to develop their own theories and build on existing ones. Concrete strategies are provided to help readers generate ideas, define constructs, and think through relationships and processes that link constructs. Compelling examples from multiple disciplines illustrate the use of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods orientations to theory construction. The text also offers practical advice for writing effectively about theories in papers and grant applications. Readers learn by doing via application and concept exercises, demonstration boxes, and practical guidelines.
