Process and procedure

A process is a set of interrelated activities that are carried out to generate a result or product. A procedure is a method made up of clear, objective steps that must be followed to complete the task. The difference between process and procedure is that processes are general activities to achieve a goal and procedures are specific steps that

Reference and bibliography

Reference is the part of the document that includes the bibliographic sources or resources that were used as theoretical support for the research. Bibliography is all the material consulted to do an investigation. The difference between reference and bibliography is that the reference refers to all the authors or resources that have been cited in a research work,

Difference between risk and danger

The risk is the likelihood that actual harm occurs while the danger is the potential or ability to cause harm. Consider, for example, a knife. In itself it is a danger because it can cause harm. If the knife is handled by an adult while preparing food, the risk of causing harm is low. On the other hand, if the knife is in

Thesis and dissertation

Both the thesis and the dissertation are academic research works that differ, mainly, by the degree of complexity, length and function. However, after preparing and presenting a thesis or a thesis, an academic degree can be obtained. A thesis is a theoretical or experimental research work, developed individually or in a group, in which an original topic is developed or

Induction and deduction

Induction and deduction are forms of reasoning. Induction attempts to reach general conclusions from particular premises, while deduction relies on general premises to reach a particular conclusion. Induction Deduction Definition Form of reasoning that uses specific data to reach general conclusions. Form of reasoning that uses general data to reach specific conclusions. Etapas Data collection. Observation.

Research Methods

Research methods are the strategies used to obtain the data that will serve to answer the research problem. Depending on the problem to be addressed and its possible solutions, there are 15 different research methods. These research methods can use the quantitative research model, which is based on numerical data, or the qualitative model, which bases

Methods and techniques of investigation

A method is a series of procedures with a specific purpose. A technique is the way we carry out those procedures. Thus, research methods are the strategies for the scientific search for knowledge, while research techniques are the tools used to carry out this search. The best way to understand the difference between method and technique

Types of hypotheses

A hypothesis is a possible explanation for a research problem. In science, the research process proposes answers that may or may not be true, but must be verifiable. There are different types of hypotheses, which depend on the type of research and the different authors. Below we present the different types of hypotheses according to Roberto Hernández

Accident and accident

The difference between an accident and an incident lies in the actual or potential damage they can cause. An accident is an event that generates material or human damage of varying severity. While an incident is an event that could generate damage or not, and that could cause an accident in the future if the faults that

General objectives and specific objectives

The general and specific objectives are fundamental elements for the accomplishment of academic works, like for example, a thesis of degree. The general objective is a statement that summarizes the central idea and purpose of a work. The specific objectives detail the processes necessary for the complete accomplishment of the work. General objectives Specific objectives Function Summarize and present
