Research Method and Robustness

During my research I had to review and assess many types of research methods, designs and analysis. The choices that were made aligned to the type of research questions under investigation. A key component was the consideration to provide robust research. The areas I reviewed are below.

My research followed a mixed method approach with a sequential explanatory design. The quantitative research using a survey as the data collection method and qualitative research using Focus Groups. As part of the qualitative analysis I used Thematic Analysis. I found using both methods complementary. To read more about my method see my thesis A Study into Best Practices and Procedures used in the Management of Database Systems.
