Abstract

The scientific practice, in the several social sciences, cannot be implemented without the researcher clearly defines in depth the theoretical and meta-theoretical foundations that underpinning the research. Similarly, the unambiguous understanding of the concepts, in view of the multi-conceptualizations core, allows providing the accuracy and strength of research methods and conclusions. This paper seeks to clarify some concepts whose relevance in research processes becomes critical in building added value to research results.
