This section covers research methodology and theoretical frameworks. Think of these as different filters on a photo, depending on which one you choose, the photo, or in this case the information you’re gathering, will look slightly different. If pure theory isn’t for you, dissertations are a great way to learn about methodologies and see them in use for your specific topic of interest!
