This book introduces triangulation as a research philosophy and practice. The book is particularly relevant to undergraduate who are in the earliest stages of their research careers. The book explains the rationale for triangulation which involves a deliberate and purposive mixture of the quantitative and qualitative approaches. In doing so, the book critiques the notion that triangulation can be used as a gateway for avoiding the complex methodological decisions that are necessary when researching new or complex ideas.
