Methodology vs. Method cont.. Methodology Method Paves the way for research methods to be conducted properly. Involves the learning of the various techniques that can be used in the conduct of research. Aims at the employment of the correct procedures to find solutions to research problems. Involves conducting experiments, tests, surveys and the like. Aims at finding solutions to research problems.
Example Topic ‘Employment of figures of speech in English literature’ Research methodology -involves the study about the tools of research, collation of various manuscripts related to the topic, techniques involved in the critical edition of these manuscripts and the like. Research methods –the study of various works of the different poets and the understanding of the employment of figures of speech in their works.
