This section will
include the research questions that will drive your study. You should have 8-10
methods section of a research paper provides the information by which a study’s
validity is judged. The method section answers two main questions: 1) How was
the data collected or generated? 2) How was it analyzed? The writing should be
direct and precise and written in the past tense. You must explain how you
obtained and analyzed your results for the following reasons:
need to know how the data was obtained because the method you choose affects the results and, by
extension, how you likely interpreted those results.
is crucial for any branch of scholarship because an unreliable method
produces unreliable results and it misappropriates interpretations of findings.
most cases, there are a variety of different methods you can choose to
investigate a research problem. Your methodology section of your paper
should make clear the reasons why you chose a particular method or procedure.
reader wants to know that the data was collected or generated in a way that is
consistent with accepted practice in the field of study. For example, if you are using a questionnaire,
readers need to know that it offered your respondents a reasonable range of
answers to choose from.
research method must be appropriate to the objectives of the study. For example, be sure you have a
large enough sample size to be able to generalize and make recommendations
based upon the findings.
methodology should discuss the problems that were anticipated and the steps you
took to prevent them from occurring. For any problems that did arise, you must describe the ways
in which their impact was minimized or why these problems do not affect the
findings in any way that impacts your interpretation of the data.
in social science research, it is useful for other researchers to adapt or
replicate your methodology. Therefore, it is important to always provide
sufficient information to allow others to use or replicate the study. This
information is particularly important when a new method had been developed or
an innovative use of an existing method has been utilized.
