Knowledge of research methodology is essential for all those who either play an active role in conducting research or desire to keep themselves abreast of the contemporary developments in the field of knowledge. Research in any discipline is a scientific process and at the same time it has to be rooted in the contextual setting where the research is carried out. The Fourth Edition contains an up-to-date account of the methods and techniques suited to the field of education and other allied disciplines and thus provides an understanding of significant research problems that need to be tackled. It discusses the steps that a researcher is expected to know for conducting a research study.
The book has been designed and written mainly for the students of M.A., M.Ed. and M.Phil. (Education, Psychology and Sociology). It will be immense value to Ph.D., students also as well as researchers of Social Sciences, Biological Sciences, Management, Legal Studies, Humanities and Languages.
