Research methods and methodology


How to... guides for researchers

The study of research methods is not only an essential requirement for social scientists, it is also vital for anyone looking to succeed in business and management. Stay informed on the basics, and familiarize yourself with recent developments and trends in research techniques.

How to… use crowdsourcing as a research tool

The term “crowdsourcing” was first used by Jeff Howe in a 2006 Time magazine article, to describe the phenomenon of online content created by amateurs. Why use the crowd rather than experts, and why should people volunteer their time to provide content to a website when it is so much easier just to browse what is there?

How to... use mixed methods research

This article examines what the term means, why it has come into favour, its advantages and disadvantages, and some aspects of the execution of a mixed method design.

How to...  undertake case study research
