Identify the key concepts, propositions, precepts, etc., of your personal research philosophy, including any rationale for your choice. Analyze the relationship between your research philosophy and the chosen research methodology for your Doctoral Study. Analyze how the choice of methodology can impact a Doctoral Study, as well as influence later research decisions and results.
Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and at least one additional scholarly source.
To prepare for this Discussion, review Chapters 4 and 5 in Saunders, Lewis, and Thornhill (2015), and consider how the different research philosophies can influence choice in research methodologies, as well as how these choices can impact a doctoral research study.
