Quan­ti­ta­ti­ve methods A varie­ty of metho­do­lo­gi­cal approa­ches make it pos­si­ble to find ans­wers to rese­arch ques­ti­ons (for examp­le, as part of a bachelor’s or master’s the­sis). Howe­ver, when it comes to quan­ti­ta­ti­ve methods, it is important to fol­low fun­da­men­tal stan­dards and work tech­ni­ques and be fami­li­ar with the limits and pos­si­bi­li­ties of this empi­ri­cal and ana­ly­ti­cal approach.

A rese­arch con­sul­ta­ti­on can help and sup­port you to refi­ne inter­viewing and sur­vey­ing tech­ni­ques, design and deve­lop ques­ti­onn­aires, con­si­der the theo­re­ti­cal impli­ca­ti­ons of various ran­dom sam­ples, and deal with issu­es rela­ted to (descrip­ti­ve) sta­tis­tics. Our rese­arch con­sul­tants in the Aca­de­mic Lab at Leip­zig Uni­ver­si­ty work clo­se­ly with the Cen­ter for Quan­ti­ta­ti­ve Empi­ri­cal Soci­al Rese­arch (Quan­teL) at Leip­zig Uni­ver­si­ty.

– Plea­se note that con­sul­ta­ti­ons are only avail­ab­le by appoint­ment. To request an appoint­ment, send us an email.

Rese­arch con­sul­ta­ti­ons — dis­cour­se ana­ly­sis Dis­cour­se ana­ly­sis is very com­mon and often used for final papers in the huma­nities and soci­al sci­en­ces. Howe­ver, the­re a num­ber of qui­te dif­fe­rent opti­ons that ran­ge from rather cri­ti­cal, decon­struc­tive dis­cour­se ana­ly­sis to more for­mal approa­ches such as socio­lo­gi­cal dis­cour­se ana­ly­sis. A rese­arch con­sul­ta­ti­on can help you select the most sui­ta­ble theo­re­ti­cal tools and deal with issu­es of imple­men­ta­ti­on.

Con­sul­tant: Dr. Robert Feus­tel
