Note on Conceptual Framework

Researchers create theoretical and conceptual frameworks that include a philosophical and methodological model to help design their work. A formal theory provides context for the outcome of the events conducted in the research. The data collection and analysis are also based on the theoretical and conceptual framework. Theoretical and conceptual frameworks provide evidence of academic standards and procedures. They also offer an explanation of why the study is pertinent and how the researcher expects to fill the gap in the literature. Literature does not always clearly delineate between a theoretical or conceptual framework. With that being said, there are slight differences between the two.
