When doing research in the university system there is a serious need for standards and practices that are adequate for the subject. The idea of scientific and rigorous theoretical study involves a structure that is also applicable as a basis for the researcher to collect, analyze and interpret data. Experts in the field of research methods have introduced necessary steps for research in various subjects. One of the essential elements of a large part of scientific researches in various fields is “comparing/contrasting” two instances of a few things. “Comparison” is one of the keywords and applications in theoretical studies. What is seen in most articles and writings about “Comparison” is its’ use to compare two things that are more or less the same, however even this prevailing method is incomplete as it does not specify the criteria and standard compliance similarities. What is new in this paper is that it will follow and document steps to apply the compare/contrast method by highlighting the differences in order to create a logical link between two or more phenomena.

This article intends to put forth a philosophical approach to the explanation of the terminology and the etymology of the so-called “comparison”, the oldest rational discussion on “analogy” that has been used since the time of Aristotle to introduce and explain reliable indicators gathered in “comparison”. The criteria considered in this study is based on a model commissioned by Harvard University research writing expert, Kerry Walk - who has spent many years in the fields of art, architecture, history and literature, on the methods for effective research and  teaching – and was presented to the Center for Research and Publication at Harvard University as reasonable and accurate.
