Toward a General Research Process for Using Dubin's Theory Building Model
Holton, Elwood F.; Lowe, Janis S.
Human Resource Development Review, v6 n3 p297-320 2007
Dubin developed a widely used methodology for theory building, which describes the components of the theory building process. Unfortunately, he does not define a research process for implementing his theory building model. This article proposes a seven-step general research process for implementing Dubin's theory building model. An example of a theory building process is used to explicate a research process that will aid new theorists and reviewers of theory in conceptualizing a rigorous and systematic process to implement Dubin's model. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
