    Dear members of ISRE,

    We are happy to announce the launch of The Open Handbook of Experience Sampling Methodology, a step-by-step guide to designing, conducting, and analyzing ESM studies!

    Experience sampling methods (ESM) are the gold standard in studying people's thoughts, feelings, and behavior in the context of daily life. In this open handbook, experts from the center for Research on Experience sampling and Ambulatory methods Leuven (REAL) join forces to provide up-to-date and empirically-based advice for designing, conducting, and analyzing data from ESM studies. The book is designed as a step-by-step guide that walks the reader through the different steps of an ESM study: starting from the type of research questions that can be formulated and how this translates into the design of the study; ethical issues; considerations that come into play when actually conducting the study, such as calculating sample size; choice of software; and the importance of briefing/debriefing. This guide also provides a thorough introduction to preprocessing and analyzing the resulting intensive longitudinal data, ending with some future developments in the areas of mobile intervention and passive sensing. As such, this handbook represents an open, complete, and up-to-date introduction to ESM research for novice and expert researchers alike.

    We offer this book for free to download, or it can be purchased at printing costs as a paper back at Amazon.When you purchase the book, please make sure that the Vendor (send and sold by) is Amazon, as third parties are already selling the book for much higher prices (the print version should not cost more than€15-20).
