Approaches to Empirical and Theoretical Research Studies is for everyone seeking to sharpen their research skills. From the graduate student learning about research methods and designs, to educators and professional researchers advancing their research skills and adding to the body of knowledge in their fields. Approaches to empirical and theoretical research studies, promises not only a teachable textbook, but a valued reference for all research projects. We have attempted to demystify research methodology and make the process of inquiry easy for everyone to understand. Research methods are a valuable tool in designing research, measurement, data collection and data analysis. Methodology on the other hand, emphasizes the entire research process. It focuses more on the core processes of conducting quality research and learning to make sound judgements about the selected method one has chosen.
The purpose of this book is to help the researcher comprehend research methodology, conduct quality research and develop effective research skills. We aspire to enable the reader to see each approach as a fundamental choice that affects the entire enquiry process. By explaining the complex material in a straightforward style, we have tried to present the information in this book in a way that is understandable to all. This allows the reader to learn the material and to see how it is used in a real-life research context, and offers the researcher the opportunity to envision how s/he may employ the processes in their own study.
