It is difficult to envisage the breadth research methods, especially for novice researchers. Using a mind-map provides alternative, visual way to present this information. The research methods mind-map explores five distinct areas of research methods in both qualitative and quantitative areas: 1. Research design 2. Sampling techniques 3. Ethics 4. Data collection 5. Data analysis

The mind-map can help the novice researcher see the variety in research methods available. The mind-map allows researchers to explore the most appropriate paths to follow for their research question. The mind-map can be used to help experienced researchers look at new research methods. For those supervising student research projects, the mind-map helps to guide the student through the research process ensuring that they cover the major areas of research for their project. Using a mind-map, research methods can be explained from a reasonably simple beginning and branches can be unfolded to increase complexity as required.
