Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: A guide for study terminology: Reviewing a fragmented domain.

The article below may contain offensive and/or incorrect content.

Decades of research publications on studying in higher education have resulted in a plethora of similar-sounding study terminology and inconsistent use of study terms. This domain is in need of a study lexicon so that researchers can consistently use terms and definitions across and within studies to more clearly define their research. This review discusses frequently used study terms (e.g., strategies, tactics, behavior), discrepancies in their definitions, and their relations to theoretical frameworks. We propose a hierarchy of study terminology based on a review of the study terms used in prior research and discuss implications for future research.
