The objective of this online workshop is to help Ph.D. candidates coherently align a research proposal, article, or thesis in the light of the philosophy of science. The workshop adopts a hands-on approach to the design and diagnosis of an empirical research project with the Idea Puzzle software. In particular, the workshop will cover the following topics:

Relation between epistemology, methodology, ontology, and axiology;
Coherence between theory, method, data, rhetoric, and authorship;
Empirical research as a system of 21 dilemmatic decisions.

After the workshop, participants will be able to: 1) acknowledge the relation between philosophy of science and research design; 2) coherently align the theory, method, data, rhetoric, and authorship of a research proposal, article, or thesis with the Idea Puzzle software; and 3) diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of an empirical research project.
