Research essentials

Christine English, Theresa Pengelly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A RESEARCHER needs to select a methodology and methods that fit the purpose of the study and will be able to answer the questions it poses. Clarifying viewpoints about epistemology (the philosophical theory of knowledge) and ontology (the nature of reality) is also important because these perspectives can affect the choice of study design. Consideration must also be given to any specific criteria in the research proposal bid criteria.
