Social Research Methods
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.
