Wan Azlin Zurita Wan Ahmad, Muriati Mukhtar and Yazrina Yahya

Appropriate methodology and research methods are essential to obtain the results of a study and to ensure the results are in response to the research questions raised. In information system discipline, Design Science Research Methodology (DSRM) is one of the methodologies, adopted by researchers to conduct their research. However, there are no specific research methods proposed for each DSRM phase. In this regard, this article articulates the research methods that are relevant to the phases in DSRM. Case analysis is conducted, namely in the process of developing a social content management framework, to show the practicality of the proposed research methods. With the details of the research methods, it is hoped to assist the academicians and novice researchers to understand more about DSRM and its relevant research methods for each phase.
