  • Comparison of Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods

    Posted by Marcus on 2020-09-15 at 1:35 PM

    In current social science research, quantitative and qualitative are the two main research methods. There is much discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of both. Which method is better? I argue that there is really no superiority or inferiority between the two approaches; they depend on the scholar’s research path and subject matter. In reality, many scholars conduct research with both approaches, and the results they achieve are in fact a combination of the advantages of both. However, the fact that quantitative research involves a lot of mathematics, data, and the use of online tools discourages some scholars from doing it, even though they are aware of the importance of quantitative research. In any case, we need to have an inclusive attitude and not limit ourselves to one research method. In the age of technology and networking, scholars also need to keep up with the times and use a combination of different research methods. This will be beneficial for the development of academic research.
