In this chapter, the main phases of research design are exhibited, starting from data sampling techniques (examples include snow ball network sampling and egocentered sampling), data collection methods (techniques such as questionnaires and interviews etc. are discussed), and data visualization (where graphs, trees and matrices are explained in some detail).
