We subscribe to an electronic version of the "International Encyclopedia of the the Social Sciences." Use the link below to access this resource. There are three sections in the Encyclopedia that are particularly effective for describing the different research methodologies. After accessing the Encyclopedia, try these three searches - one for "methodology," one for "methods, qualitative," and one for "methods, quantitative."
