Qualitative Analysis

Study the behaviour of the participants and observe them to analyse for the research work.

When you perform qualitative research, you mostly study the context of a problem and the involved issues in order to find answers to your research problem. Qualitative research generally uses techniques, such as observation and personal interviews, to answer questions. It requires you to study the behavior of participants for assessing the causes of certain events and actions displayed by them. Qualitative approach varies significantly from quantitative in the sense that it investigates the ‘how and why’ of things.

Why choose a qualitative study?

Through a qualitative study, you can understand an unknown phenomenon and find out its causes. Several causal explanations in ethnographic research are now provided through such qualitative studies. This approach is adopted by a range of studies performed in the field of social sciences, including grounded theory studies. Ranging from content analysis and the study of journals to taking field notes, there are several methods of data collection used by qualitative studies.

Using these methods, you may understand the context of problems and narrate your data. Through our qualitative data analysis services, we assist you in formulating your research objectives and questions. We ensure to consider your study goals before providing suitable solutions. While supporting you with such analysis, we follow both mechanical and interpretative methods.

Statistical Analysis

Analyse your data with the most popular and effective tools to have accurate results and findings.

Statistical data analysis is at the heart of your research, as all your findings are based on the way you analyze your raw data. Thus, it can be costly to make mistakes at this stage of research. If you do not use the right statistical tests, tools and techniques, then it can be disastrous for your entire research. It is important to be accurate while analyzing and interpreting your findings. This is where our team of professional statisticians can support you.

In case of your quantitative study, we utilize software like SPSS, Stata, EViews, SAS and AMOS. We also recommend right statistical tests which suit your quantitative study. On the other hand, we make use of packages like NVivo while analyzing data and thematic content for your qualitative study. We additionally help you in designing the methodology for your research so as to effectively answer all research questions.

Questionnaire Design

Design a standardised questionnaire for you qualitative, quantitative or mixed research to prove the argument.

The key objective of a questionnaire is provide standardised interview across all subjects. This is so that all respondents are asked the questions that are appropiate to them, and so that, when those questions are asked, they are always asked in exactly the same way.

The role of the questionnaire is to elicit the information that is required to enable the researcher to answer the objectives of the survey. To achieve this, the questionnaire should not only collect the data required, but also collect the data in most accurate way possible.

Points to ponder when designing a questionnaire

  • Data Collection Media
  • Types of Question and Data
  • Application of scales in measurent
  • Ethical issues involved
  • Writing and laying the format of Questionnaire

Why design your questionnaire with us?

Questionnaire design is one of the most crucial aspects of your academic research. It is never similar to writing a chapter or conducting analysis. You must have sound knowledge of statistics and should bear in mind the hypothesis to develop questions which can be directly attributed to them.

Choice of scales like Likert five point or seven point scale is also important and should be backed by rationale for using the same.

Our team can assist you in developing questionnaire for research and pilot study. Our experienced team members have already helped numerous doctoral candidates in the same.

Research Methodology

Choose the most suitable research methodology based on the argument of your research.

Research methodology is the basis of your study. You should have an intensive knowledge of all the aspects, while you are writing it. You need to execute your ideas with precision to develop it well. While many research students think about their data collection tools when they start writing about the methodology, it is also important to look at some other aspects according to Saunders.

Saunders gave the concept of a research onion, according to which several stages need to be covered while developing a strategy. One may ask questions related to the chosen philosophy of research, as well as its adopted approach, strategy, etc. When such questions are over, then the question related to data collection methods should surface.

Some important points to be noted in this concept include the following

  • The type of reality you have been investigating triggers some beliefs. The set of such beliefs is termed as the research philosophy. Its assumptions actually justify your methodology.
  • Research philosophy can be categorized in three ways ontology, epistemology and axiology on the basis of your understanding. Each of the thought processes differs in the approach you adopt toward the understanding of your methodology.
  • The philosophy of positivism assumes that the reality is independent of subjects, the philosophy of constructivism assumes that observations are interpreted based on subjects’ response differences.
  • The deductive approach of research is regarding the deduction of hypotheses from theories, making them operational, and testing them. On the other hand, the inductive approach is regarding the building up of theories based on people’s ways of interpreting certain events.

Based on your research topic and its intrinsic qualities, the choice between primary and secondary data or between qualitative and quantitative research is made. When there are specific queries and their contexts, answers are sought through a mixed kind of methodology.

The Research methodology chapter will cover Developing a research design, it is done once the scholar is aware of the research gap, Developing a questionnaire, it’s done when objectives are made, Reliability test or Pilot Study is done by collecting some samples(30-40), Data collection is done on the basis of questionnaire developed, Data analysis is a descriptive and factor analysis or SEM.

Review of Literature

Evaluate the literature of your topic to critique, evaluate, and interpret it for your research work.

 

Steps to follow while developing Literature Review for your thesis/dissertation:

Find a Topic

When you need to review literature for your dissertation or thesis, it is important to find a topic first. This can be done while searching the existing literature. When you know the amount and relevance of your searched literature, you may tweak your topic by modifying or narrowing it down.

Locate and review literature

This helps you in understanding more about the already covered topics, also about those that have the scope of further investigation. You may also go through the linked theories and models that can be the basis of detailed research.

Establish the writing purpose

Identify the aim of writing the literature review. Most of the times, it is about tracing ethical, legal and political issues and other historical developments. You may also need this for judging the effectiveness of treatment or identifying the existing gaps in research.

Evaluate literature

To give due importance to critical and relevant results in your study, it is also essential to interpret and evaluate literature. When you discuss about your study topic, it is important to develop your discussion based on literature that is built on relevant theories.

Do literature synthesis

Based on your study’s design, framework and research model, it is required to synthesize your literature or group it. If there are any noticable cracks,, then those can be used to explore the research gap.

Develop the first draft

When you start writing the initial draft of your literature review, make sure you form meaningful headings and subheadings. Use your preferred or recommended professional citation style in a consistent manner. All relevant theories should also be developed properly.

Peer review the draft

After you prepare the first draft, get it peer-reviewed to remove plagiarism and unnoticed errors. Based on the peer review feedback, make appropriate changes to shape your work well.
