Research design is a thorough plan for data collection in research project

Research design is a thorough plan for data collection in research project. It must cover the main process in the research; the data collection process, the instrument development process and the sampling process (Bhattacherjee, 2012).
This study meant to found out the main factors that could affect the adoption of M-health for Jordanian people. The behavioral point of view in M-health and technology usage in general has a strong theoretical foundation. Researchers can pick up the relevant models and factors which can be used to predict the behavioral intentions toward new technological systems. In other words one of the positive designs (Field Survey) is chosen; as the research aim is to test the theories not build it (Orlikowski and Baroudi, 1991; Bhattacherjee, 2012).
Field Survey is “a non-experimental design that do not controls for or manipulate independent variables or treatments, but measure these variables and test their effects using statistical methods” (Bhattacherjee, 2012, P.39). Field Survey has been used in this research because of the ability of this design to capture several variables, which allow studying multiple theories. It also suites large number of people, wide geographic areas and examine several kinds of data that cannot be clearly observed such as believes and behaviors (Bhattacherjee, 2012).
