1 Introduction The purpose of research is to gain new knowledge. In order to be able to trust new findings, it is important that scientific methodology is used. The tools that researchers use to conduct research should be described in sufficient detail so that other researchers may conduct and replicate the study. In other words, an important principle is that the findings should be replicable, which means that they are confirmed in new studies and by other researchers. There are several scientific methods available, and the most important aspect is that the methods are well suited for exploring the research question.

Variables also differ in how they are measured or assessed. Some variables are easy to assess; for example, age could be measured in years (at least for adults) or salary measured in dollars or Euros. Both age and salary are continuous variables measured on a scale with equal intervals between the values. Many psychological variables are measured using a five-point scale or a seven-point scale where the person is asked to indicate how much she or he agrees with a statement. Sometimes fewer categories are used, and it can be argued whether such scales can be seen as Research Methods and Statistics 25 continuous or not; this has implications for the statistical methods that may be used for analyzing the data.
