Research Scheme Table

From SWaRM

You can use this table to plan the research scheme for your research methodology. The text in italics is where you would insert your choices for your particular study. This table can be used when you plan your own research methodology, or when you are extracting information from a journal article or conference paper to add to the wiki.

Note the following.

  • The bottom part of the table is divided into two vertical parts, allowing you to plan for two research designs. If you are using only one research design, you can ignore the right-hand side.
  • For each research design, place has been left for two specific research design properties. Research designs each have some extra properties, and if the one you are using has only one property, you can ignore the second one; if it has more than two extra properties, you can just add more rows to the table.
  • For each research design, the table makes place for two research methods to be used for that particular research design, and two specific research method properties. You may be using only one research method, in which case you can just ignore the part of the table that handles the second research method. If you are using more than two research methods, you can add extras rows as necessary.
