Framework vs Methodology?

Hello,

Since I am working on an article, I am reading a lot of documents and confused about the terminology.

I know that scrum is a framework but people also use 'methodology'. Which one is correct? Or are both of them acceptable?

If we start any sentence like "scrum is a methodology that ..." is that correct or do I need to use framework for official papers?

Thank you.
