Abstract: Research projects are often continuous, they are initiated by one researcher and continued by another. Each researcher needs to understand the continuous project and his part in it. This part we call a mini project. Explanation of research methods and projects results in literature does not help in understanding continuous research projects. Descriptions of research methods are often full of details and do not show relations between projects supported by different research methods. In this paper, we put all research methods into three categories and define two types of results. We suggest defining a mini project by a research method category and its result type. From such mini projects we build continuous projects. This way of structuring is illustrated with a continuous project investigating a view on changes of enterprise architecture. The relations of mini projects of different categories are generalized in a guidance for researchers, supervisors and reviewers.
