Abstract

Melanesian values and world views construct an ontology and epistemology that can be used to distinguish a Melanesian research methodology. This Melanesian research methodology is one that may offer advantages to those undertaking research in Melanesia in that Melanesian values are in the foreground. Melanesian research methodology does place specific requirements on the researcher with relation to context and processes of data collection and data analysis. In this manner, it is argued that ethics has a pivotal role in research quality. Finally, to assist the researcher, four personal attributes are described that help practise a defensible Melanesian research methodology.
