Hi Vincent
I think your definitions are correct, as far as I'm aware.  I think we need to spell out both of these, otherwise we come under criticism for producing something that is not academically  and scientifically sound.  Thoughts?

Do we really want to distinguish between method and methodology?  I think methodology is more related to the principles we are using and method more focused on the rational way to get a result, but this is based on the French translation of these concepts and I'm not sure if these differences are still valid in English...

Hi Shadi,

I think there is no need for categorizing each listed one in method,
technique and methodology and also this could easily create a long debate.
This is not my intention. I just thought that the proposed change of the
title will be more open.

Hi Kerstin,

Yes, I thought about separating them out into different pages when we
have more entries. I'm not looking forward to categorization though...

Hi TF,

it seems to me, that not all "methodologies" on


are really "methodologies". Some are "just" techniques or methods.


a title like "Website Accessibility Evaluation methods (or

techniques?) and

methodologies" might be better. Or?
