An Overview of the Techniques in Adopting Appropriate Research Designs when Conducting Research Study

Audu, G. A.


This study looked at methods for choosing relevant research designs for various types of studies. The abundance of problems linked with advancement in science and social sciences led to the development of research designs, and this study is necessary to provide an explanation for all of the problems that result from this development. The need to comprehend the nature and manner of those concerns, as well as potential solutions, prompted a number of larger inquests by scholars to address those nagging issues. The necessity to connect the efforts of scientific and social sciences, as well as the tremendous insight of philosophy in problem resolution, resulted in what is now considered as research design, which allows researchers to employ proper research methods. This paper, therefore, examines some basic considerations for adopting appropriate research design and concludes that appropriate research design depends on the nature of research embarked upon by researchers and other factors such as ethics, time and budget and any method chosen has valid contribution to scientific knowledge.
