We will discuss some basic assumptions that underlie research into screen violence, strengths and weaknesses of various types of empirical studies, and the role of theory in designing and understanding screen violence studies. Specific examples of key short-term experimental, cross-sectional, and longitudinal studies will be discussed. Common methodological, statistical, conceptual, and interpretational mistakes in media violence studies, and how to avoid them, will be presented.
