Most researchers agree that the main general goals of research are description, understanding/explanation, and, from there, prediction. Numerous studies have been constructed into the field of research on human services, utilizing both quantitative and qualitative methodologies and, in some instances, a combination. In these notes I cast a brief look over the concepts of qualitative and quantitative research from a methodological perspective with the aim to encourage researchers to start employing a full range of instruments to explore and understand the phenomenon of interest.
