The Many Faces of Psychological Research in the 21st Century

This free psychology textbook includes 13 chapters written by 17 different leading scholars and educators and was edited by Jane Halonen and Steve Davis. It provides a “broad overview of what research agenda and approaches this new century calls for across many of psychology’s subdisciplines.”

I am not entirely sure if this work will help students directly but it does seem like this would be a great start for someone needing a topic for a psychological research paper.
