Our strength lies in a scientific perspective combined with a pragmatic and project-based approach. We study each question carefully and devise a research and analysis plan that delivers the proper insights. The Elephant Path draws on more than ten years of experience with designing and implementing multidisciplinary and multi-method research projects. We have expertise in a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and advanced statistical techniques.

literature review

A high-quality research project cannot be done in isolation. It always builds on and contributes to an existing body of knowledge. We can review existing information relevant to your project, or answer a specific question that requires literature research.

survey development

We develop a data collection framework for your study. We select or design reliable measurement instruments and help you set up and send out your (online) surveys.

quantitative data analysis

We analyze your data using the appropriate statistical techniques. We have extensive experience with descriptive and inferential statistics, including difference testing, correlational testing, predictive or explanatory modeling, mediation, moderation, growth modeling, latent class analysis and more.

qualitative analysis

Sometimes it’s not about numbers and statistics, but about capturing experiences, reflections, motives or perceptions to gain more in-depth insight into particular phenomena. We design and conduct qualitative studies (e.g., interviews, focus groups) and analyze the resulting data.

mixed-method studies

Quantitative and qualitative research methodologies increasingly are combined to get a better understanding of complex social issues. Qualitative studies can be employed to identify topics and phenomena that are worth investigating on a larger scale, or to further explain findings from quantitative studies. We can advise on a mixed-method approach for your project and connect and integrate the findings.
