I am using a research handbook written by Creswell to guide me in writing my Bachelor's Thesis.
Specifically, I followed his research design model.
Should I justify why I structured my Methods Chapter the way I did by saying that such structure was recommended by Creswell?
For example, I may say that Creswell suggested that this section should be included in the research design.
I live in a developing country. My institution has no specific style guide. They underestimate undergraduate research, but I cannot wait for my supervisor to tell me what to do as long as my sources are authoritative.
Here is a link of a summary of the book.
I cannot consult my supervisor at the moment nor wait or state why here.
