This book focuses upon the debate about quantitative and qualitative research which took root in the s, although many of the central themes go back centuries.

The basic terms of the debate have been felt in many of the disciplines which make up the social sciences, especially sociology, social psychology, education research, organization studies, and evaluation research. Quality and Quantity is an interdisciplinary journal which systematically correlates disciplines such as data and information sciences with the other humanities and social sciences.

The journal extends discussion of interesting contributions in methodology to scholars worldwide, to promote the scientific development of social research.

'Forests are the most beneficial land use for protecting water quality, due to their ability to capture, filter, and retain water, as well as air pollution from the air.
