This is a blog about the craft of research, maintained by the resident writing consultant at the Copenhagen Business School Library, Thomas Basbøll. Its name, Inframethodology, is intended to indicate the area “beneath” or “behind” method, just as “metatheory” is generally taken to indicate something “above” or “beyond” theory.

It is the practices that are grounded in our “care” for research that will interest us here. These are things like clear writing, proper referencing, close reading of sources, attention to detail in note-taking, the collection and storage of data. In short, everything that ensures the quality of our research, short of those issues that properly belong to the methodologies of particular disciplines.

Everyone is welcome to read along, but researchers, and especially PhD students, will probably find it most useful.
