Relationships Between Quantitative Variables.
Instead of testing, measuring, and experimenting, qualitative research aims at understanding the subject of study Mayring His study also identified the identical categories of information seeking behaviour of the research scientists and engineers to those of previous studies of academic researchers. Qualitative research is concerned with critical epistemology which in other words is called an interpretivist-constructivist approach.
He identified eight major characteristics in the patterns; surveying; chaining; monitoring; browsing; distinguishing; filtering; extracting and ending. Saddle River, p Bassey, M.

Reflection on Ontological, Epistemological 200 Methodological Perspectives. Qualitative research methodology often relies on personal contact over some period of time between the researcher and the group being studied.
In his study, he explored the patterns of information seeking by engineers and research scientists at a Norwegian research centre in different phases and types of projects. Click here to sign up.
