It provides an overview of basic research concepts, strategies, and methods (i.e., quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods), and provides examples of their use in the simulation field to date. High-quality research requires not only knowledge of the research process, but also appropriate attention to developing the structure to support the activity. This chapter is not intended to be comprehensive in nature but seeks to provide both a general framework as well as additional resources where one may develop more in-depth understanding.
