The research process starts with asking at least one question about a specific phenomenon of interest, the research question will help a researcher to direct attention, thoughts, efforts, in deciding on the most suitable approach to answer the question and then make sense of the phenomenon of interest (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill, 2009). To ensure that others appreciate the results of the research, a researcher needs to explain the philosophical approach that has been used in answering the research question that in essence helps to validate the research outcome (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill,
A deductive design might test to see if this relationship or link did obtain on more general circumstances” (Gulati, 2009: 42). In other words, when a deductive approach is being followed in the research the author formulates a set of hypotheses that need to be tested. Then, through implementation of relevant methodology the study is going to prove formulated hypotheses right or wrong. Sneider and Larner (2009) inform that in deductive approach reasoning starts with a theory and leads to a new hypothesis, which is going to be confirmed or rejected as a result of the
Several scholars and museum curators have already played with this, although it’s not yet common to apply this type of taxonomy in Islamic art galleries. What also contributes to the introduction of this more chronological chunk taxonomy is the lack of knowledge of museum visitors regarding dynasties and their times. Four approaches are discussed below, two by scholars, and two by museum professionals. Oleg Grabar came up with the idea to divide the timeline in three periods in his 1996 article; the Early Islamic period (700-900), the Medieval period (900-1250), and the period after 1300 when the art stops being universal according to him (Grabar, 1996, p. 101). It’s unclear from the article whether modern and contemporary times are also included or not.
Hereby, the deductive approach is a methodology in the researches that have been built by considering the theory or speculations upon a prior hypothesis and afterward details the examination way in order to deal with it and then test it. The associations made in this methodology are made for the reason of inspecting if the changes that are occurring and the results that are appearing, are well connected with the past data research and its analysis. Other than this, an inductive approach could be used in this research. By using this approach the perceptions are regarded as the beginning stage for the analyst, and the relevant examples are searched for the information. This is done to present the inductive approach as the move from the concept of particularity to generality.
Introduction The quantitative and qualitative approaches should not be understood as in one research is used only quantitative method, but in another one is used only the qualitative method. Both approaches represent certain systems of outlooks, within which ideas of cognitive functions of methods and priorities of its relevance for scientific research are formed. When you decide which model to choose, it is important to have the idea of what the main goal of collecting the information is. On the one hand, the qualitative approach is a research method in which the researcher has an active role in interacting with the participators or object he or she wishes to study. In other words, qualitative research is a method which creates verbal summaries of research without any statistical summary or analysis.
These two events can be considered as problematic. The aim of this paper is to call attention to the meeting between the two waves of institutional critique, that appears to have been acutely reversed in the present “rebound” of institutional critique, that perhaps may have brought emergence to a third
For example- a researcher might begin his or her topic of interest. Then, researcher would curtail that down into more specific hypotheses that can be tested. The hypotheses are then further curtailed down, when observations are collected to test the hypotheses. This ultimately leads the researcher to be able to test the hypotheses with specific data, leading to a confirmation (or not) of the original theory and arriving at a
Qualitative research is the preference instead of quantitative because theories in qualitative research are formulated after data collection, instead of using preconceived concepts and theories to determine what data will be collected. A qualitative research method is an inquiry approach in which a researcher explores a central issue through secondary data. 7.6 SOURCE OF QUALITATIVE DATA: 7.6.1 LITERATURE
This literature review examines the dynamics of the two qualitative methods of research, semiotic analysis and ethnographic method. The interdependence of these two methods of research will be further spoken about in this essay. It shall further talk about how the two methods have an important role in shaping ‘media’ and ‘culture’ and how they contribute to the existing cultural production? Qualitative research is a sub-division of the methods used for conducting research; other being the quantitative type of research. The former type of research mentioned above is the kind of research which helps the researcher gain an in-depth knowledge on the desired subject being analysed.
