Methodology shop


Do you have questions about designing a study (“How many respondents will I need?”), analyzing a data set (“What to do with my non-normally distributed data?”), or SPSS/R? Or do you have another question about doing research or a specific statistical analysis?  At the methodology shop we offer free advice to all students from the BMS faculty! 

If you would like to get advice, the only way to contact us is to send an email (in Dutch or in English) to: Please include your question/problem in your email. Based on this, the employee of the methodology shop will decide if she will respond to your email with an answer to your question, or if she will schedule a consult.* Consults are limited to about 30 minutes.

The methodology shop is an initiative by the BMS department of Research Methodology, Measurement and Data Analysis (OMD).

*FYI: The employee of the methodology shop can give advice on how and when to run a certain analysis, but will not carry out any analyses for you.    


If you are having questions about research methodology or statistics, take a look at these micro-lectures. These short videos can assist you throughout the research process and may answer many of your questions. They may also be helpful for supervisors instructing their students.
