HDR Literature Review Plan

Finding research methods

 

A well developed literature review can:

  • Help you gain a deep understanding of different research paradigms and associated methods in your disciplines
  • Support you to make an informed decision on which research methods are most appropriate for your research

There are two types of literature than can help you learn about research methods:

  • Original studies - analyse methods used in existing literature
  • Books and databases on methods

The short module below will guide you through the process of finding research methods.


 

Get started with SAGE Research Methods
