Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this report is to present an overview of scientific modes of observing, concerning theory as well as practice. By using a theoretical model, based upon factors influencing the choice of observation methods, we describe the field. The model is composed of two dimensions; the first concerns theory-testing versus theory-building while the second dimension describes the level of structure in data collection. The model illustrates a typology of four different approaches of group observations. Further, the role of the observer, reliability, validity and ethical considerations in observational research are discussed.
