answer to writing an outstanding
dissertation is to be meticulous, whilst being concise, and to include
all of the most important sections, including the methodology. The
methodology is the section of the dissertation in which you describe,
as the author, the objectives of the research and the methods by which
you hope to achieve those objectives. Make sure you include everything
that belongs in this section while omitting everything that does not.
Write a brief introduction to the methodology section as a whole. The
introduction should stipulate the objectives of the research and
suggest any potential challenges and limitations that may stand in the
way of achieving these objectives.
Write a summary of your research methodology. Again, this section
should be relatively brief, but it can be longer than the introduction.
The summary should cover all of the main components of the methods
you've used to conduct your research, omitting all of the minor
details. As you write, keep in mind that the purpose of this summary is
to inform and engage the readers who do not read the extended version
of the methodology, which you will write next.
The first part of the extended methodology should address your data
collection methods. This section should be comprehensive, although not
heavily worded, and it should describe in precise terms all of the
methods you used to achieve your research goals through data
collection. Be sure to include the methods of analysis such as
materials employed, methods of data collection, participants, sample
size, research duration and step-by-step procedures. Methods of
scientific research are subdivided into general and special. General
methods encompass three large groups as singled out by the functional
criterion. Each group is further subdivided into separate methods:
(observation, measurement, comparison, experiment),
• Methods of both empirical and theoretical research levels
(abstraction, analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction, analogy,
• Theoretical research methods (abstract-specific descent,
Among special methods of scientific research there are prediction,
disperse analysis, correlation and regression, factor analysis, cluster
analysis, etc. The most precise and correct results in any research are
attained due to the aggregate application of both general and special
methods. Continue the extended methodology by writing the data analysis
section, these paragraphs should cover every detail of the instruments
you use to draw meaningful conclusions from the data you've collected.
