Some arts and humanities research uses social science strategies, particularly in subjects close to the social sciences — such as history, and cultural studies. However, much of the research in the arts and humanities uses quite different strategies and, when presented, the thesis can be of quite a different shape to that of a social science thesis. In terms of both research methods and overall final shape, some arts and humanities research can — to the reader, the non-artist or the researcher — tend to seem amorphous, or even highly subjective, when it needs to be just as conceptually clearly organised and managed as any other research in any other field.
