7 Things You Might Not Know About Dissertation Research Methodology


There are various different aspects that you need to be aware of when it comes to writing a dissertation. For example, the methodology section will often be a section that you need to include as part of your work. To give you a better understanding about this aspect of your essay, the following outlines seven things that you might not necessarily know.


  1. What to write about in your methodology section
  2. When writing the methodology section, you should discuss any methods that you used as part of your research. For example, you might wish to include details of any experiments that you did, as well as any interviews, questionnaires or other methods that you used. Likewise, you may wish to provide details of any resources that you used, such as websites or books.


  3. A methodology section is not only required for scientific papers
  4. Whilst most scientific papers will require a methodology section, it is worth being aware that this section is not reserved exclusively for scientific papers. In fact, you may require a methodology section for a wide range of other papers for different non-scientific subjects.


  5. You should describe the methods used
  6. As well as informing the reader of what methods you have used, you should describe more about each of those methods. Essentially, you should imagine that the reader knows nothing about the different methods that you have used, so you should ensure that they have a full understanding of them once they have read what you have written.


  7. It is best to use a wide range of different methods
  8. In order to ensure that you gain as great an insight into the subject that you are discussing as possible, it can be a good idea to use a wide range of different methods. For example, you might gain some useful results with one method, but some other completely different, but equally useful results using a different method.


  9. Not all methods will necessarily be suitable
  10. Whilst it is useful to use a wide variety of methods, you should also be aware that not all methods will necessarily be suitable - so choose carefully.


  11. Your plans might change as you proceed with the work
  12. Whilst you might outline various methods that you wish to use before doing the work, it might turn out that the methods are less suitable than you first thought or, alternatively, you may find other methods that you wish to use as well. So be prepared your plans to change.


  13. You can pay professionals to proofread and edit your methodology section
  14. Finally, to ensure the high quality of the work that you produce, you can have a professional proofread and edit what you have written in your methodology section.
