    Selecting the right methodology for your dissertation can be a challenging task. With so many research styles available, it can be a meticulous task to pick on the methodology that will support your research question and help you find answers to your research problem.
    Writing the chapter of research methodology takes a lot of time and energy on the student’s part. Many students are also seen over stressed about selecting their methodology and writing the correct reasoning for it.

    Ideally, your methodology section must be 20% of the length of your dissertation. You need to answer the major W & H questions like why you selected a particular method, what you did and how you managed to conclude your findings based on the selected methodology. Also, you must write the other methodologies that you did not use, and why they were not suitable for your dissertation. Your methodology can be either quantitative or qualitative, depending on the nature of your subject. The quantitative research will have more analytical data based on close ended questions and statistics while the qualitative counterpart will include interviews, polls, more open ended data which will be difficult to express in numbers.

    Before you submit your final methodology, create a rough outline and share it with your advisor. Based on his feedback and inputs, you can complete the methodology and submit it without any hassles.
