Abstract: The research methodology known as Q methodology is relatively unknown in the Malaysian sphere. Nonetheless, if you are uncovering ‘points of view’ held around a topic, Q methodology is one of the methods to consider. There are seven (7) steps in Q methodology implementation which combine both qualitative and quantitative methods. The aim of this article is to give an overview and steps to implementation of Q methodology. Q methodology, in this article, is exemplified through a study on the conceptions of autonomy in language learning.
