Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The data collection plan is a series of well-thought-out strategies to implement the data collection process. The details of the plan are written out on paper. Once the research proposal is approved the data collection plan is implemented. This implementation is the action or doing phase of the study. The aim of this phase is to collect the evidence or data. During implementation, the researcher can experience problems related to people, researcher, institution and events. The data collection process is a time that is very challenging and requires the researcher to use mental and interpersonal skills.
