Mind mapping research methods

Mind mapping research methods The mind maps represent the authors’ concept of research methods at this time. The major aspects, rather than a complete picture, of research methods are illustrated in seven distinct areas: research problem, research design, sampling techniques, ethical matters, data collection, data analysis, and report findings. Brief descriptions explain the mind maps and why items were placed in certain areas where as traditionally they may have been placed else where. The mind maps show that although decisions made in one area of research methods may affect decisions made in another, there is no pre-determined connection between each area and the research design chosen. The mind maps can be used to as a guide to teach, supervise, and chart a way though the concepts of research methods and may help to produce more robust research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality & Quantity Springer Journals

Abstract

The mind maps represent the authors’ concept of research methods at this time. The major aspects, rather than a complete picture, of research methods are illustrated in seven distinct areas: research problem, research design, sampling techniques, ethical matters, data collection, data analysis, and report findings. Brief descriptions explain the mind maps and why items were placed in certain areas where as traditionally they may have been placed else where. The mind maps show that although decisions made in one area of research methods may affect decisions made in another, there is no pre-determined connection between each area and the research design chosen. The mind maps can be used to as a guide to teach, supervise, and chart a way though the concepts of research methods and may help to produce more robust research.
