Research Methodology

The literature review and methodology seem to be milestones within the journey of PhD research without any clear reason why they’re there.  I say this of course with my old hat of industry and business on my head.  I have since learned (and am still learning) the what, how and where these fit in; and more importantly why they need to be there.  I am adjusting my literature review to reflect my main research question, and will need to work on writing a clear methodology that sets out the plan on how I intend to answer it.

In my quest to learn what my literature review and methodology should look like, I came across many articles, helpful pages on different university websites, and of course some books, videos and online classes.  Personally I found the style of Amgad Badewi to be perfectly pitched.  It’s simple enough for a non-academic to understand and follow; and is in depth enough to make it worth the time invested to watch. This LINK is a playlist of eight videos which take you from zero knowledge to basic knowledge, in 2.5 hours.

Thank you, Amgad, and best of luck with your research.
