Research strategy is defined by Yin (2003) as a plan showing how a researcher will go about answering the research questions. In the context of Social Sciences research, there are five main research strategies: Experiments, Surveys, Archival analysis, Histories and Case studies. According to Yin, (2003) the selection of a research strategy depends on: the type of research questions, extent of control the researcher has over behavioral events and the degree of focus on contemporary as opposed to historical events.
