The scientific method is one, there are several ways of identifying its practice or application in research. So the research can be classified in different ways. Positivist approaches promote empirical research with a high degree of objectivity assuming that if anything exists, it exists in some quantity and its existence in some quantity can be measured. This leads to the development of investigations known as quantitative, which rely on traditional statistical tests. But especially in the field of social sciences complex phenomena are observed and can not be reached unless holistic efforts with a high degree of subjectivity are realized and oriented towards the qualities rather than the quantity. This is the basis for various methodologies for collecting and analyzing data (not necessarily numerical) with which the research known as Qualitative is performed.
