What is Research? Definition , Purpose & Typical Research step? To talk of research is to talk about problem solving. A particular way of solving problems has been recommended by scientists and this method is what we adopt in research.
What is research?
Research is the systematic and scientific method of finding solution to a problem. The operative words here are “systematic” and “Scientific”. By “systematic” we mean that to solve a problem we adopt a particular or laid-down process which we call the “scientific method”. Research is a planned process of conducting investigations in order to achieve a pre-determined objective.
The objective is usually a solution to one or more specific problem, or an addition to current knowledge in a particular field. The scientific method encourages doubt and criticism so that what emerges (the solution) is the real evidence which has stood the test of reasoning.Purpose & Typical Research step will highlighted in the next post.
