What is Research?

Research is an organized way of solving a problem or establishing the answer to a query. It is the manner by which the individual articulates the meaning of facts and data.

Research as a Process

Research is a cyclic process.

  • Research begins with an unanswered question in the mind of the researcher.
  • Research sees the goal in a clear statement of the problem.
  • Research¬† subdivides the problem into appropriate sub-problems.
  • Research poses tentative solutions to the problem(s) through appropriate hypotheses.
  • Research looks for the fact directed by the hypotheses and guided by the problem.
  • Research interprets the meaning of the facts which leads to the resolution of the problem.
