Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methodologies
Application: Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methodologies
The two basic types of scientific research approaches are quantitative and qualitative. As a learner you have been and will continue to be exposed to both types. In order to better differentiate between the two methodologies, it is important to understand the characteristics of each and how they differ from one another.

The name and citation of the article (APA format)
