Research Methodology Methods and Techniques

Introduction There are different approaches to research including theories and methods. There two well-documented general approaches that are use mostly in academic researches. These approaches are quantitative research and qualitative research methods (Cresswell, 1994). Before choosing a research method one needs to understand how these two approaches to research work...

Prehistoric Decoration on Stone in Orkney

Introduction The character of Orkney’s incised stonework is a topic that has been seriously under-researched and all but ignored by the archaeological community. This paper is a commencement rather than a conclusion intended to introduce the abstract inscriptions carved into the Orcadian landscape during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. It...

The Recidivism Rates Among Juvenile Offenders: Research Design

Introduction The study of the recidivism rates among juvenile offenders can best be carried out through qualitative research methods. This is because the study seeks to find out the reasons why juvenile delinquents re-offend, how their prison experiences affect their rates of recidivism, the problems currently facing juvenile prison programs...

Biochemistry: Zinc Metabolism

Introduction Zinc is an essential nutrient that functions in growth, reproduction, tissue repair, and cellular immunity. Zinc recommendations of 5 mg/day for breast-fed infants are met from mobilization of liver stores and the approximately 2 mg of Zinc obtained each day in breast milk. Formula-fed infants have greater needs due...
