Research Methodologies and the Doctoral Process.
Creswell, John W.; Miller, Gary A.
New Directions for Higher Education, n99 p33-46 Fall 1997
Doctoral students often select one of four common research methodologies that are popular in the social sciences and education today: positivist; interpretive; ideological; and pragmatic. But choice of methodology also influences the student's choice of course work, membership of dissertation committee, and the form and structure of the dissertation proposal and dissertation itself.
