Methodology

A methodology is usually a guideline system for solving a problem, with specific components such as phases, tasks, methods, techniques and tools. It can be defined also as follows:

  1. "the analysis of the principles of methods, rules, and postulates employed by a discipline";
  2. "the systematic study of methods that are, can be, or have been applied within a discipline";
  3. "the study or description of methods".

A methodology can be considered to include multiple methods, each as applied to various facets of the whole scope of the methodology. The research can be divided between two parts, they are qualitative research and quantitative research.

Famous quotes containing the word methodology:

    One might get the impression that I recommend a new methodology which replaces induction by counterinduction and uses a multiplicity of theories, metaphysical views, fairy tales, instead of the customary pair theory/observation. This impression would certainly be mistaken. My intention is not to replace one set of general rules by another such set: my intention is rather to convince the reader that all methodologies, even the most obvious ones, have their limits.
    Paul Feyerabend (1924–1994)
