What is a Methodology?

Methodology is the systematic, theoretical analysis of the methods applied to a field of study associated with a branch of knowledge. That process is used in Research for the purpose of making decisions.

Usually those involved in this process must encounter the following---

  • Body of practices, procedures, and rules used by those who work in a discipline or engage in an inquiry
  • Set of working methods
  • Study of theoretical analysis of such working methods
