The choice of used methods can only be based on the goal of finding the truth. When judging other publications or presentations, a scientific researcher must only be guided by scientific arguments. When giving education, it must be avoided that only your own study books are used. Every scientific researcher must inform the university about his sideline activities and this information must be accessible on the universities website. - not partial: treating all equal - a scientific researcher must not let personal interest, preference, affection or prejudice affect his judgment and decisions.
But, a little more detail about the participants’ backgrounds would have added on as a reliable factor. Despite that, they specify why there may be a difference and how it would have been difficult for them to access such information without the use of email; conforming to specification of task. On the whole, the article managed to explain the purpose of the study and showed the results that were achieved and clarified. The topic of study is one that is relatable to people of all ages and keeps the reader engaged. The data is very well presented and clear to
The first epistemological concern is relating between the researcher and participants within the research and about the effect on connection between values and facts. The phenomena and topic of women’s self esteem and body image being researched is positioned as objective observation. Researcher is viewed as objective, research and investigation should not be affected by interpretation and behaviour of researcher. Recognise that researcher can make their own assumptions and biases, but without affecting and interpreting participants, rather in a possible non judgemental and neutral approach. The second set of epistemological issue of these relates to the fact that knowledge is best acquired, a inductive process through observing patterns and collect evidence and knowledge in the real society, in order to built up theories and make a conclusion.
The main purpose of this chapter is to provide an outline of the research methods that will be used and to explain the procedures that will be employed to collect the data in the intended study. Since the scope of the study has been determined, and its aim and objectives have also been identified, it is very important to outline the methodology that will be adopted to pursue the issues relating to the research questions. This involves indicating the particular research philosophy and strategic approach that will be assumed by the researcher. Research is a systematic investigation to increase the sum of knowledge (Fellows and Liu, 2003). Marshal and Rossman (2006) define research as a systematic inquiry to provide a better understanding of
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this assignment is to develop learner’s ability to analyse the different research approaches when conducting a research study. The requirement will be focusing an analysis on qualitative research approaches used when conducting a research study mainly in business. A research is a way of gathering information and acquiring knowledge. There are two types of gaining sources of knowledge, the traditional sources and scientific method. However, knowledge gained from traditional sources such as common sense and personal experience are not scientific because potential error may exist.
Research also requires expertise. • Research involve the quest for answers to unsolved problems • Research should be carefully recorded and reported and that research sometimes requires courage this could be due to opposition of political and religious authorities. 1.1 PERSONAL CONTEXT Basavanthappa (2007) opined that research helps to portray accurately the characteristics of a particular individual, situations or a group. Personally, research at every stage is a painstaking exercise. As a researcher there is the need to be open minded and be positive to all possibilities.
It gives the researcher a better understanding of what is happening in the culture and It lends credence to one of the explanations for observation. Note also participate It enables a researcher to collect quantitative and qualitative data through surveys And interviews. 5. Sometimes it is the only way to collect the right data to study
The same conditions should be in place for continuing involvement, where participants should be aware that they are free to withdraw from the study at any given time. When the action researcher is also the teacher, student participants may be reluctant and uncomfortable with the fact that the researcher is also the teacher who grades them. Students may feel forced to participate because they feel if they were to refuse, it would affect their grade. Conflict of interest is therefore
Also, he needs to study in a good environment to be psychologically comfortable because when the student feels free and happy, he can do his best to get good grades. Figure 2: Problems unsolved by having good study skills. Conclusion In conclusion, study skills are a very good key for students to learn good competences of studying to be more successful and more confident to achieve success in all their studies. However, they cannot teach students how to be motivated or give them solutions to some life
The section details the research methodology used to achieve the aim and objectives of the research on stress management at workplaces. Research methodology can be best described as the sum of the research approach, methods and procedures used by the researcher to execute the research study (Anderson, 2009). It comprises of collection of data, evaluation and scrutiny and deriving conclusions to attain the research objectives in the best possible way. A methodological approach ensures that the research takes a non-biased structure and is conclusive in nature. It also covers different aspects of the research, comprising of philosophy, approach, quantitative and qualitative handling of the data collected thereby and the corresponding research
