Social Research Methods

Storyboard Text

  • Well, why don't you tell me about how you would like to conduct your social research and I can tell you which approach will fit best.
  • Hi Professor, I am struggling on which approach to use for my social research project.
  • I thought I would study objects or processes in the natural world by examining their cause and effect. 
  • What are the ontological assumptions of your research?
  • My source of knowledge will be empiricism, and I will seek validation through the replication of my results statistically.
  • Hmm, ok. What about your epistemological assumptions?
  • I plan to conduct my research objectively, while employing quantitative measuring methods.
  • Lastly, what are your methodological assertions?
  • So.. which research approach do you think my ontological, epistemological, and methodological assumptions fit with best?
  • Well it sounds to me like you have described a positivistic social research methods approach.
