Chapter 3: RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
Research methodology is most important part of the investigation which discussed about the kind of data used in the investigation. This chapter critically discussed about the ways used for identifying, analysing and interpreting the data for the study. It is one of the systematic process which collects and analyse information for the investigation (Brennen, 2021). Research methodology is that part which is divided into various sub parts so that accurate data can be gathered. The research aim and objective is also attained in appropriate way. Research problem of the study is also address using the data which is being extracted in this section. The stages of research methodology are discussed below:
3.1 Research Philosophy:
It is the first layer in the methodology which used that data through which social world can be recognised easily. Research philosophy is a set of principle which tells about the phenomenon to develop skills and knowledge related to the topic. Positivism, interpretivism and realism are the three different types of research philosophy. Positivism philosophy gathers and identified objective data for the study. Interpretivism philosophy collects and analysed subjective data and in the end realism philosophy use both types of philosophy to understand society (Smith and Luke, 2021). According to the current investigation, to recognise the social world researcher has opted for interpretivism philosophy. This is because it helps in knowing the social world in deeper manner with the help of quantitative data. This is also one of the approach through which deeper insight about the topic can be made and aim of the investigation can be attained accurately. The reason for not choosing positivism philosophy is that it only considered objective data to understand the society in accurate way.
3.2 Research Approach:
Research approach is another significant layer of the investigation. This is the stage which make general plan to address the research problem. It is divided into two forms which are inductive and deductive approach. In inductive approach investigator uses qualitative data to address the problem. Whereas, in deductive approach quantitative data is used to determine the problem. As per the existing investigation the chosen approach for the investigation is inductive (Young and Babchuk, 2019). This is because through this method a new theme about the investigation can be formulated. This method also uses textual or written data for discussing the research problem in deeper way. Investigator has not chosen deductive approach because it only considered numerical data while addressing the problem. Positivism philosophy also evaluate existing hypothesis which is developed just after the research problem is being identified.
3.3 Research Strategy:
The third layer of the research methodology is strategy stage. This is stage which uses various strategies to gather information for the chosen research subjective. It is a step by step plan which collects appropriate data. Research strategy also provide path to the thoughts and idea of the investigator. There are various types of research strategy such as survey, experimental research, case study, systematic literature review, grounded theory and many more. The most common types of strategy which is used in many research are survey, systematic literature and case study (Brooks and Normore, 2018). For the current investigation research has opted for systematic literature review. The main advantage to use this strategy is that secondary data for the study is accumulated. The time to gather raw data is less as well as lesser cost is also incurred. Another big advantage to use this method is vast data for the study is accumulated from various secondary source. Acquiring this information is quite easy as researcher did not lay stress on choosing the method through which data from the participants can be collected.
3.4 Research Choice:
Each and every research different type of data so it is very important to know what kind of information is needed to carry out the investigation. There are three research choice which are quantitative, qualitative and mixed research choice. In quantitative research method numerical data is gathered and analysed. In qualitative research method non numerical information is being used (Kiyimba, Lester and O'Reilly, 2019). At last, in mixed method both quantitative and qualitative research method is used for the investigation. For carry out the investigation investigator has selected qualitative research method. the reason for this is non numerical data helps in analysing the gaining deeper insight about the topic. It provides quality result for the investigation in the textual form. This method is also one of the method which aid the researcher to execute the investigation in detailed way.
3.5 Data Collection:
It is the research method which is directly linked with the procedure of collecting information and content from the available different sources. It is the approach which allows researcher to show dependence over primary and secondary information for meeting the investigation's aim and objectives (Ravitch and Carl, 2020). Generally, the method of data collection is categorised in the two forms which include: primary and secondary data collection method. Primary method is the type of collecting data which mainly focuses over recording raw information. It is the information which are not gathered earlier and recorded for the very first time. On the other side, secondary method is about the accumulation of second-hand data. Second-hand content refers to the information which is already assembled by other people for meeting their own goals and objectives. It is the kind of data which holds great information in meeting the research aim, objectives and questions. According to the requirement of current investigation, researcher has only used secondary data collection method because they had limited duration for collecting and analysing data (Drisko, 2020). Second-hand information is easier to accumulate because it is already available because they are already gathered by the other people for attaining their own purpose. With the help of secondary data collection method, an investigator tries to address all the objectives and questions of the investigation. The section of the literature review is majorly dependent over the second-hand data because through this gap is identified in earlier conducted investigations. There are many secondary sources which help in the accumulation of secondary content such as journals, publications, newspapers, books, articles, already conducted survey & interviews and so on. Thus, the main reason of selecting secondary method over primary method is that it makes possible for the researcher to collect great information in the short duration of time in a systematic manner.
3.6 Data Analysis:
It is the research method which helps in the analysis and evaluation of collected data. This is necessary step in every kind of investigation because it eliminates the data which do not hold any significance in the investigation (O’Donoghue, 2018). It is mainly classified in the several techniques which include: content analysis, thematic analysis, frequency distribution analysis and so on. Investigator has used thematic analysis because it assists investigator to evaluate and examine secondary and theoretical data in a systematic manner. The major advantage experienced by the investigator is that it allows researcher to highlight the significance of evaluated secondary and theoretical piece of information.
3.7 Time Horizon:
Time is the most significant element which helps in conducting and completing the whole investigation in a systematic way (Leavy, 2020). Time horizon is one of the research methods that allow an investigator schedule time duration for each activity and task in a systematic manner. It is mainly of two important kinds which are: cross-sectional and longitudinal time horizon. Investigator has used cross-sectional time horizon because it allows researcher to collect information in real-time and only depend over updated information. It is the method which allows investigator to assemble the data in the pre-defined set duration of time.
3.8 Research Ethics:
Research ethics are the collection of values and principle which is followed at the time of investigation. Using the belief while gathering data from the society helps in reducing vicious conduct that happen during investigation. Research ethics also assist in gathering data which is ethical and using this data in the investigation does not create any problem. Some of the research ethics which are obeyed in the current investigation are as:
- Credibility:The foremost ethic which is to be obeyed is credibility. In this researcher should provide credit to all those investigator, author or researcher whose data is used for the investigation. This helps them to carry the investigation in fair and transparent manner. The credit is given by citing the source in the investigation. This also help the reader of the study to know the perception of other investigator on the topic (Azungah, 2018).

As per the information generated in the section of literature review, it is determined that sustainability is one of the practices that hold great importance in the hospitality industry. It is the holistic approach which includes economic, ecological and social dimensions. The meaning of sustainability is achieving the requirements and needs without making any compromise with the abilities of future generations (Linneberg, Madsen and Nielsen, 2019). It is identified that there are three significant pillars of the sustainability which include economic, social and environmental. It is defined as profit, planet and people (Della Volpi and Paulino, 2018). As per the hospitality industry, it is identified that sustainability is very important for them because it helps them in conducting their business operations without creating negative impact over environment and society. With the help of sustainability, hospitality tries to create positive implication over customer experience. It directly assists in creating great customer satisfaction and better loyalty. It is quite good for several hotels and resorts operating under hospitality industry. When hotels adopt sustainability practices then it helps them to decrease the cost and decrease the amount of wastage by the hotel.
When an organisation invests in sustainable practices, it assists them to achieve environmental objectives and creates great relationships with the public. In simpler words, with the help of sustainable practices hotel build trust among customers and engage them with the offered services. It is determined that hospitality industry is majorly dependent over the number of customers and they are continuously putting efforts to engage and retain large number of customers (Shurrab, Hussain and Khan, 2019). People get attracted towards those hotels which are following sustainable practices in their business operations and functions. Customers have become quite cautious towards the environment and they are very aware about the fact that hotels are using natural resources and create negative impact over the environment. So, sustainability is one of the terms which assist in attaining societal objectives such as social, economic and environmental dimension.

Therefore, sustainability is the term which is directly linked with the success and development of the hotel along with creating positive impact over environment and the whole society.
Sustainability is considered as the process which is related with meeting needs and demands of future and at same time no compromise could be seen by future generation in using natural resources. Sustainability accommodates different natural resources such as social, economic, environmental as these are helpful in creating healthy working environment. These practices help in maintaining and controlling work life balance so that productivity in overall manner can be increased. In the context of hospitality industry, sustainability is one of the major measure which helps the industry to acquire different dimensions such as social, environmental, community and different others.
