Q: How valuable is it to know the appropriate quantitative research design to be used before crafting your research paper?
Hello Ren – Welcome to the forum!
Here’s why it’s vital to know the research design and methodology that you will need to use before beginning to compose the research paper. The research design will depend on the subject of your research as well as the type of testing that you intend to perform. The sample and population properties will also influence the selection of the research design. The choice of research design will be examined closely by peer reviewers and your fellow researchers to verify whether it was suitable for the study. You will need to explain your reasons for choosing the research design. Therefore, it is advisable to select an appropriate research design that can be justified using strong arguments.
