Overview of research methods and methodologies

Welcome to your Research Methods Subject Guide. This guide has been put together specifically for Postgraduate students, particularly those conducting research for the first time.

Research methods provide the tools through which information is gathered and analysed. A research methododology is generally either qualitative or quantitative; or a mixture of both: mixed methods.

This guide provides a starting point for understanding and chosing a methodology for your research project. Please use the "Ask a Librarian" service on the right of the screen if you'd like any further assistance.
