The blog attempts to articulate the research method, especially within the field of urban studies. The chart attempts to decode the various knowledge territories that are operative functionally as well as spatially within various research areas. The chart also attempts to acknowledge and recognise such knowledge systems. This also makes tangible links that research in any such knowledge systems are central to various urban discourses that recognise the liveability indexes and sustainability of such characters of the city.
Methodology is the systematic, theoretical position, approach that is applied to a field of study. It comprises the theoretical analysis and principles associated with a branch of knowledge.
Method is simply a research tool and technique component of conducting research – a qualitative method such as interview or quantitative method such as demographic study are examples of methods.
