4.7.3 Setup and use adequate methods
Pre-test your methodology to ensure workability. There needs to be a demonstrated veracity in the method to be adopted. Clearly follow step by step, the methods being adopted in implementing the proposed project. If the method is a standard method, reference it. Validate methods if no standard is available. In case you modify methods, carefully explain how you did it. Pilot studies Most research begins with a pilot study to check how well your plan works in reality and whether the method you want to use is really suitable. Pilot studies are usually small but maybe publishable. A pilot study will give valuable insights into this question. The pilot study may quickly show that your original idea is not feasible, for reasons which were not possible to predict in advance. It may show this at the stage of data collection or at the stage of data analysis. It is always a good idea to pilot your data analysis as well as your data collection. Practicalities Do remember that you need to give consideration to an array of practical issues when thinking about your research project
