Introduction: Environmental psychology is an empirical science; the foundation of this science is based on research in which hypotheses are tested through empirical observations. Research studies on environmental psychology are modeled on a variety of research questions. Literature review indicates that the need for comprehensive research in the field of introduction and analysis of the leading research plans and methods is felt.
Methodology: In the present study, the "research method" used is applied in terms of purpose and descriptive-analytical in nature. Data collection based on analytical-explanatory methodology examines, analyzes, and explains specialized texts of environmental psychology in research methods in the context of library studies.
Results: The results of the analysis of specialized texts, the three main types of research projects in the field of environmental psychology are described as "experimental (laboratory), semi-experimental (quasi-laboratory) studies, correlation" and comprehensive research methods in environmental psychology, including "questionnaire" research. "Laboratory experiments", "simulated studies", "field studies", and "case studies".
Conclusion: Since the 1960s, several names have been proposed for the field, including "Environment and Behavior," "Psychology of Nature," and "Psychology of Environmental Protection." The term "architectural psychology" was used in the first conferences on the subject in the mid-1960s. However, those concerned quickly realized that the discipline included questions and answers beyond and into the building. The purpose of various research in environmental psychology is to understand "environmental behaviors" and change them. To do this, the main criteria for measuring these behaviors should be considered according to the developed criteria in measuring environmental behaviors so that practical, methodological, and theoretical applications can be achieved about them. Research findings related to research methods in environmental psychology will play an increasing role in guiding researchers, designers, and managers of natural and artificial environments. Research and Research Criteria Due to the emphasis on knowledge of environmental psychology, it provides the most appropriate ground for reducing the instability of research because it has compensated for the lack of specialized strategies, methods, and measures.
