"The key idea behind qualitative research is to learn about the problem or issue from participants and engage in the best practices to obtain that information" (Creswell, 2007). The study will use different qualitative data collection techniques and interpret the results by using interpretivism philosophy. In the interpretivism philosophy the research will conduct by reducing bias and therefore enabling the advent of thoughts, viewpoints, and sentiments (Henning 2004). According to (Saunders et al, 2012) there are two widely used research approaches The first research approach is deductive approach and its ground is considering general premises and reached to specific c... ... middle of paper ... ...ying mainly semi-structured in-depth interview with relevant stakeholders. During the interview, notes will be taken and informants will also be tape-recorded when permissions obtained and immediately transcribed using the informants’ own words.
CHAPTER THREE RESEARCH METHODOLOGY 3.1. Introduction This chapter will explain chronological way to do the full research by using different research methodologies. The purpose of study will be explained by the appropriate philosophy in a right approach and the pattern of the reach will be discussed by the researcher thoroughly in this chapter. This approach will be a combination of data collection procedures using both primary and secondary sources, sampling methods, strategy of the research. Every research has some limitations and this chapter will also discuss the limitation of the study by detecting it and comparing with different approaching methods which can be used.
Processes of research by Jonathan Guy In this essay I will outline the primary methods of conducting research, their advantages and disadvantages and will outline where they are best utilised. In addition to this, I will select certain methods of research that I believe will be applicable to my own dissertation and state why I will use those particular methods to conduct my own research. The first question we should ask is what is research? John C. Merriam considers research as “a reaching out to bring together, organise and interpret what ever may be added to our store of knowledge…most truly exemplified when it involves the wider relationship of specific facts to the whole structure of knowledge”. (C. Merriam, 1941, pg890) In other words, something should be considered research when it adds to what we already know, especially if it does so through adding facts to out structure of knowledge.
The main aim of using a mixed method is to improve the reliability and validity of the research outcomes. For this research study, a mixed research approach was adopted to achieve the study’s aim and objectives and to maximise the benefit of both methods. From a qualitative stand point the research conducted semi-structured interviews and from a quantitative aspect a closed questionnaire was prepared. Both of these methods require data collection involving primary and secondary data collection methods. Primary sources include survey method by way of interviews based on questionnaires, event observation and Secondary sources include government publication, books, world statistics, survey, journals, and so on (Chisnall, 1997; Saunders et al., 2003).
University must first understand all the benefits of online tutor database. Also, the report details challenges the University must consider before accepting the proposal. The report will also have a set of recommended actions that must be taken in order for School of Management to make full usage and maintain an online tutor database. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time and co-operation. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to call me at (613) 262-2469 Online Tutor For University of Ottawaâ€™s School of Management June 14th, 2005 U Ottawa Online Tutor EXECUTIVE SUMMARY It is recommended that University of Ottawaâ€™s School of Management begin to advertise through the Schoolâ€™s various communication channels.
More specifically, epistemology also contains three philosophical positions: positivism, realism and interpretivism (Saunders, Lewis and Thornhill, 2009). Positivism stance usually supports investigating or studying an observable social reality and the final production could be “law-like generalisations similar to those produced by the physical and natural scientists” (Remenyi et al. cited in Saunders, Lewis and Thornhill, 2009, p113). It is effective to generate a research strategy to collect the creditable data which comes from observable reality therefore contributing to developing hypotheses (Saunders, Lewis and Thornhill, 2009). In this study, we aim at exploring the creditable and measurable results from individuals in order to understand the influence of surprise on viral marketing via social media in perspectives of message characteristics.
Third is the consensus for arrival at judgments concerning the data 's meaning that sets aside the researchers ' biases (Hill, 2012). Fourthly, it requires at least one auditor for checking the judges primary team 's work and minimization of the effects of group thinking in the primary team. The methods of the data collection in consensual qualitative research are naturalistic and highly interactive, and include interviews and sampling (Given, 2008). However, the researchers may also compare the qualitative findings with quantitative findings for triangulation of the results. While the data analysis involves three main steps that include domains, used for segmentation of the

It is also a systematic inquiry to define, analyse, forecast and manage the observed phenomenon. Research contains inductive and reasonable methods Babbie (1998). Inductive methods analyze the observed phenomenon and identify the overall principles, format, or processes underlying the phenomenon observed; deductive methods verify the hypothesized principles through observations. The purposes are different: one is to expand explanations, and the other is to experiment the validity of the explanations. Marketing research can be in terms of primary and secondary research .So, primary research is also known as fields research that is it is the collection of new fresh information and data and it can be carried out through the help of questionnaires, interviews, surveys with individuals or groups of people.
