Settings and Research Methods

  • Christine Grimm


The choices we make in the course of designing our research influence its outcome. For instance, if we investigate the phenomenon in question via questionnaires we receive a different type of data than if we approach a topic with ethnographic methods. Not only is the data we collect different but also the way in which we approach and analyse what we find. Therefore, to comprehend and evaluate the conclusions of research projects, it is necessary to understand the research design behind them.
