Getting started with replication-based dissertations. Replication-based dissertations Most quantitative dissertations, whether carried out by academics or undergraduate, master's or doctoral level students, will involve one of three types of replication, which we refer to as duplication, generalisation or extension.

Getting started with replication-based dissertations

In most cases, replication is associated with duplication. In other words, you take a piece of published research and repeat it, typically in an identical way to see if the results that you obtain are the same as the original authors. In some cases, you don't even redo the previous study, but simply request the original data that was collected, and reanalyse it to check that the original authors were accurate in their analysis techniques. However, duplication is a very narrow view of replication, and is partly what has led some journal editors to shy away from accepting replication studies into their journals.

These are philosophical presuppositions of the method and are not derived from the method.

COMPASSS (COMPArative Methods for Systematic cross-caSe analySis) is a worldwide network bringing together scholars and practitioners who share a common interest in theoretical, methodological and practical advancements in a systematic comparative case approach to research which stresses the use of a configurational logic, the existence of multiple causality and the importance of a careful construction of research populations. It was launched in 2003, and its management was re-organized in 2008 and 2012 to better accommodate the growing needs in the field. Its main goal is to further develop systematic comparative case analysis as a genuine and established research strategy to study many different and diverse phenomena.

Qualitative research relies primarily on the collection of qualitative data (i.e., nonnumeric data such as words and pictures). I suggest that, to put things in perspective, you start by reviewing the table showing the common differences between qualitative, quantitative, and mixed research.

Lessons Learned: Preparing a qualitative dissertation. Designing: Foundations of Qualitative Research. Designing & Proposing Qualitative Research We start our sections on conducting qualitative research with designing and proposing. These intertwined processes serve as spaces for you as a researcher, along with your colleagues and committees, to plan thoughtfully while considering the major challenges and issues that come along with conducting qualitative research.

Some amount of designing must take place before any data is collected – at the very least a researcher should know where they are researching and some general areas of interest. They should have some background in general theories that guide their research and some of the current research in their field, if any exists. And most research must be passed by an Institutional Review Board before any data is collected. Research Questions offers tips and resources for honing your topic of inquiry. Research Proposals discusses how to write a research proposal, with resources on the major proposals for doctoral students at HGSE. 13887_Chapter5.pdf. Lectures.
