I am struggling a comment from my supervisor about writing methodology in my thesis. In the methodology section I described all methods that are used in my research. How ever, the feed back said that they are not methodology.
What should we write about methodology? Is that only a general method, for example "The methodology in this research is "try and error". Does it make sense?
Methodology is the general term to describe, as a whole, a system of methods (within a disipline/practice).
