Abstract

This chapter represents the first stage in the gathering of data for research projects and introduces some of the factors that influence the choice of data collection methods. Different areas of accounting and finance research have different traditions for conducting research, which will have a direct impact on the researcher’s choice of data collection method. The chapter then proceeds with case study approach to collecting data, an approach that utilises a wide range of data sources and techniques. The chapter discusses the strength, difficulties and practicalities of using that approach in a research project.
