                     VALIDITY  via CITATIONS




                 To add further to the strength / validity of the "messy method" approach: 


Researchers may like to see where other colleagues have used the messy method ideas or simply cited  an article (or a thesis).  A simple way to do this is to search, for example, for articles  by myself or Tina Cook through GOOGLE scholar.
