Choose the research method that you see best aligns with your research focus, and justify your decision using appropriate scholarly research guides that you have sourced throughout this course and your other research methods courses.
The rationale should be at least 3 paragraphs in length and well cited with appropriate scholarly research guides or specific scholarly research you have sourced as a specific research method and research design choice you are considering for your dissertation research study.
It can be helpful to draft this section directly within the Dissertation Research Prospectus Template knowing you will carry this document forward to develop in RES861, so please do so for this assignment submission.
