DescriptionDue to an abundance of available methodologies and research guidelines, it can be difficult to pinpoint and correctly choose a suitable method for answering human factors-centered research questions. This is especially true for novice researchers who may lack the requisite knowledge to identify and implement methods within the domain that could be most appropriate for solving a specific problem. To address this issue, a human factors methods website was designed and created using an iterative four-stage developmental process consisting of investigation, planning, design, and evaluation phases. This website will serve as a tool for users (i.e., novice researchers) to select, learn, and implement a variety of methods that can be tailored to properly address their research questions and achieve valid results.
