Manners and Methods in Science
What role does the scientific method play in the consciousness of researchers?
- What are the steps of the scientific method as typically described in textbooks?
- Do you think scientific research usually progresses according to the scientific method?
If not, why?
- Find textbook definition(s) of the scientific method. Don't presume others know it (I sure don't - je).
- Survey scientific literature for articles on scientific method.
- PubMed: Go to NCBI, click on PubMed
- Web of Science: Go to VCU Library, click on W, then Web of Science
- Many articles you find will be on line or in the library... read a couple!
- Surf the web (but beware!)
