The following section describes some of the most common weaknesses in study design seen by medical technology evaluators poorly described patient populations unless the criteria used to determine patients' eligibility for a study are clearly outlined, and the characteristics of the patients who actually get enrolled are clearly described, it is impossible to know to which populations of. You have pointed out lots of advantages and disadvantages of case studies, there are also ethical issues, observations and interviews are typically used in case study research to gather data, so the ethical issues are broadly the same (eg privacy, consent, risk of harm, etc. In additions to limitation in research methods, there can also be limitations of the researcher conducting the study true, accurate research is meant to be unbiased to offer an accurate representation of a certain group or groups of data.
Scope and limitations of the study the scope of the study involves the time & money spent, the tools/materials and techniques used, and the number of personnel needed for the experiment to be completed.

Study designs this short article gives a brief guide to the different study types and a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages see also levels of evidence these study designs all have similar components (as we'd expect from the pico). 12 chapter 2 methodology and limitations this chapter presents the methodology and limitations of the study we first explain why each of the case study sites was selected.
