Bastos JL, Duquia RP, González-Chica DA, Mesa JM, Bonamigo RR - An Bras Dermatol (2014 Nov-Dec)

Bottom Line: Validity and reliability of the collected data and, above all, their potential comparability with data from previous investigations must be prioritized during this phase.We present a decision tree, which is intended to guide the selection of the instruments employed in research projects.Studies conducted along these lines have greater potential to broaden the knowledge on the studied subject and contribute to addressing truly socially relevant needs.

ABSTRACT
The selection of instruments that will be used to collect data is a crucial step in the research process. Validity and reliability of the collected data and, above all, their potential comparability with data from previous investigations must be prioritized during this phase. We present a decision tree, which is intended to guide the selection of the instruments employed in research projects. Studies conducted along these lines have greater potential to broaden the knowledge on the studied subject and contribute to addressing truly socially relevant needs.

f01: Decision tree to guide the process of choosing an instrument to collect scientificresearch data

Mentions: The synthesis of the entire process suggested in this article is illustrated in thedecision tree, depicted in Figure 1. We believethat the conduct of studies along these lines has an even greater potential to increasethe knowledge on the particularities of any topic of interest and, ultimately,contribute to approaching socially relevant demands.
