It also presents the statistical tools and techniques that are used in the data analysis and presentation. The validity and reliability of the research method employed in the study are exhibited. The key concepts and variables used in the thesis and the measures used to operationalize these concepts and variables are discussed in detail. 2.1 Rationale of the Research Method The research is an exploratory research. Both qualitative and quantitative
Kerlinger (1973) said that a research design sets up the framework for ‘adequate’ tests of the relations among variables. Designs tell us, in a sense, what observations to make, how to make them, and how to analyze the quantitative representations of the observations. A design tells us what type of statistical analysis to use. Henry Manheim (1977) is of the opinion that research design not only anticipates and specifics the seemingly countless decisions connected with carrying out data collection, processing and analysis but it presents a logical basis for the decisions. William Zikmund (1988) has defined research design as “a master plan specifying the methods and procedures for collecting and analyzing the needed information.” Further, Miller has defined research design “as the planned sequence of the entire process involved in conducting a research
This chapter presents the methodology employed to collect data and achieve the objective of the study. The major components of the methodology are the profile of the study area, research design, research population, sampling method, research instruments and methods for collection and analysis of data. 3.1 Research design Research can also be classified as exploratory, descriptive or explanatory (Stangor, 2007). A research design constitutes the blueprint for fulfilling research and answering questions. It includes an outline of what the researcher will do from writing research questions and their operational implication to the final data analysis.
2. Planning the Research Design - A research design is planned after the hypothesis is developed. It is a actual framework of research that provides specific details regarding the process to be followed in conducting the research. This design includes where the information will be researched from, in what time limit, sampling process and appropriate measurement techniques. 3.
Research Methodology This chapter will be based on the methodology used for carrying out this study. It will be answering the research questions in section 1. The research design will be presented as well as the research paradigm. The data collection tools will be studied and data analysis will be described. The reliability and validity of this study will also be described.
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
The process of methodology itself will be described in detail every stages. 3.1 Defining the Variables In this study, the variable is liquidity risk and will be measured by cash ratio, financing to deposit ratio, loan to asset ratio, and capital adequacy ratio. 3.2 Research Design The variables in this research and the relationship will be drawn in the schematic diagram as shown below: Based on the figure 3.1 above, the research design consists of three events. First is liquidity risk before spin-off that the researcher observes. Next is the experiment event which is spin-off process.
1.4 Scope of the research: The scope of this study is categorised into ten main areas. The following are the areas that will be covered in this study: 1.4.1 Literature Review: The literature review will focus on the theoretical understanding of the following elements: • Cultural heritage tourism • Cultural heritage
This chapter introduces the topic chosen for the research. It presents the background of study followed by the problem statement. The questions of the study are listed and the scope of the study is also discussed. The chapter ends with the significance of the study. 1.1 Background of Study Human communication takes many forms.
The second type is the research case study. The attention is hereby on developing new theories or exploring and testing existing concepts (Myers, 2009, pp. 70-71). Moreover, the case study methodology is not merely applicable within qualitative research, but can also incorporate quantitative data (Yin, 2011, p.
