On Studying Information Seeking Methodologically: The Implications of Connecting Metatheory to Method.
Dervin, Brenda
Information Processing & Management, v35 n6 p727-50 1999
Explores the implications of articulating the bridges that are built, usually implicitly, between metatheory and method, and between these and their ultimate interests, the doing of research; the purpose is to articulate the uses of methodology. Suggests that there is lacking a vocabulary for talking about methodology which attends to the philosophic mandate in the term. (AEF)
