A mismatch between questions and methods can undermine a proposal’s credibility and will raise questions about the likelihood that the research will ultimately contribute new information to the field.

Scientists think in terms of cause and effect, and so once they propose to themselves a causal relationship, the problem they were subconsciously wrestling with becomes explicit. Many paths exist for developing a model for one’s chosen problem, and these paths range from adopting a preexisting model (say, from the literature) to constructing one wholly from scratch. In most cases, some complicated path between these extremes is followed, amalgamating elements and aspects for various sources. One ordinarily adopts a model in toto from the literature for the explicit purpose of testing an idea that has interested researchers in the field but is neither well confirmed nor convincingly rejected.
