Research methodology is a term that basically means the science of how research is done scientifically.  It is a way to systematically and logically solve a problem, help us understand the process not just the product of research, and analyzes methods in addition to the information obtained by them.

Quantitative Research Methods (typically tests a hypothesis):

  • surveys
  • experiments
  • statistical analysis
  • analysis of previous research

Qualitative Research Methods (typically generates a hypothesis based on data collection):

  • case studies
  • questionnaires
  • personal accounts
  • unstructured interviews
  • participant observations
