    Hey there, am about to embark on my Methodology chapter and am having some trouble: all the examples/structure plans I have looked at go into great detail on why they decided to use a questionnaire, or what made them decide on which group they asked etc. but my University has told us not to use interviews in our dissertations!
    So what exactly do I write about? How is choosing certain text books and reports etc. going to turn into a detailed methodology? I'm not sure if I'm missing something? Any help would be much appreciated!

    How did you tackle your question? What models or framework are you using? What's the theoretical underpinning of your subsequent discussion? I imagine that these questions would be relevant when undertaking a 'methodology' chapter.
