1.4 Research project specification
Research methodology is designed to provide a brief outline on what methods or procedures will be used by researcher. It helps in conducting research in smooth way. Also, by this researcher is able to conduct research in systematic way (Smith, 2015) For present research methodology used is described below :-
Research philosophy- It is a technique that allows researcher to conduct research in appropriate manner. There are two research philosophies that is positivism and interpretivism. For present study positivism approach is used. It will allow researcher to focus on aims and objectives that has been determined.
Research approach- It contains theories and hypotheses that is used while conducting research. Inductive and deductive research approaches are there. For present study researcher will use inductive approach (Bell, 2014) It is because entire research is based on questions that will help in collecting specific data and information. Through this researcher will be able to achieve aims and objectives.
Research technique- Generally, there are two types of research techniques used in research that are quantitative and qualitative. In context to above research, qualitative technique will be used by researcher. By this it will be easy to evaluate data and getting specific results. Moreover, in the end it will help in getting valid conclusion of research.
Data collection - Data collection technique plays a crucial role in research. It is because the entire outcomes are based on data collection (Lutz, 2016) There are two ways of collecting data that is primary and secondary. In primary data is for first time from sources like surveys, questionnaire, etc. while in secondary research data is collected by from previous research such as books, journals, newspapers, etc. In context to present research questionnaire method is used by researcher to collect data. Questionnaire will contain only open ended questions. With this help effective and proper data will be collected.
Sampling- It also plays vital role in getting results. It refers to selecting audience from which data questionnaire will be filled.
