Many people feel lost when they think about research methodology for the first time.
I was no exception: I felt like I was blindly stumbling through a forest during my first project.
However, I have learned that research does not need to be complicated.
In fact, research can be very simple if you know what steps to follow and how to avoid unnecessary complexity.
Even high-impact research often uses simple methods that can be mastered by anyone.
So, in this course, I want to give you a complete blueprint that guides you through your entire research project.
You will learn what to do, how to do it, and how to keep your research simple yet effective.
