Book Honoring Retired Professor Available This Month
Cultivating Q Methodology: Essays Honoring Steven R. Brown is now available. Q methodology is a conceptual framework and set of procedures to systematically and scientifically study the subjective.

- Chapters honoring Brown's legacy
- Chapters devoted to methodological aspects of Q; and
- Applications of Q methodology to various topics.
Professor Steven Brown has directly impacted the work of each of the contributors of this volume, and hundreds more who have sought to use Q methodology to study topics spanning the human sciences.
