AbstractKnowledge of research paradigms is crucial as they guide scientific research and discoveries through their assumptions and principles. Besides, different disciplines utilise different research approaches. There are four different research paradigms available - positivism, realism, critical theory, and interpretivism. Knowledge of the various research paradigms will reduce research method bias and allow for better research instruments.
