Research methodology

  1. 1. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY<br />
  2. 2. RESEARCH<br />“Research is a systematized effort to gain new knowledge”.      <br /> -Redman and Mory. <br /><ul><li>The purpose of research is to discover answers through the application of scientific procedures. </li></ul>  <br />
  3. 3. What’s the Difference Between “Method” and “Methodology”? <br />Method:  <br />Techniques for gathering evidence <br />The various ways of proceeding in gathering information <br /> <br />Methodology:<br />The underlying theory and analysis of how research does or should proceed, often influenced by discipline <br />
  4. 4. Research method & methodology<br />According to Sandra Harding: <br />“A research method is a technique for (or way of proceeding in) gathering evidence" while "methodology is a theory and analysis of how research does or should proceed"<br />
  5. 5. "It is the theory that decides what can be observed." <br />- Albert Einstein <br />
  6. 6. Significance of research<br /><ul><li>Throws light on risks and uncertainty </li></ul> <br /><ul><li>Identify alternative courses of action </li></ul> <br /><ul><li>Helps in project identification
  7. 7. Solves investment problems </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Solves pricing problems </li></ul> <br /><ul><li>Solves allocation problems </li></ul> <br /><ul><li>Solves various operational and planning problems of business and industry </li></ul> <br /><ul><li>Provides the basis for all government policies in our economic system. </li></li></ul><li>Characteristics of Research <br /><ul><li>Research is directed towards the solution of a problem.
  8. 8. Research is based upon observable experience or empirical evidence.
  9. 9. Research demands accurate observation and description. </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Research involves gathering new data from primary sources or using existing data for a new purpose.
  10. 10. Research activities are characterized by carefully designed procedures.
  11. 11. Research is carefully recorded and reported</li></li></ul><li>TYPES OF RESEARCH <br />Applied -Fundamental Research<br />               Applied Research or Action Research is carried out to find solution to a real life problem requiring an action or policy decision. <br />               Fundamental Research which is also known as basic or pure research is undertaken for the sake of knowledge without any intention to apply it in practice.<br />
  12. 12. <ul><li>Quantitative VsQualitative Research </li></ul> <br />               Quantitative Research is employed for measuring the quantity or amount of a particular phenomena by the use of statistical analysis.<br />                   <br />               Qualitative Research is a non-quantitative type of analysis which is aimed at finding out the quality of a particular phenomenon.<br />
  13. 13. Conceptual Vs Empirical Research<br /> <br />               Conceptual Research is generally used by philosophers and thinkers to develop new concepts or to reinterpret existing ones. <br />               Empirical Research is a data based research which depends on experience or observation alone. It is aimed at coming up with conclusions without due regard for system and theory.<br />
  14. 14. Conclusion:<br />Research is an endeavourwhich helps to discover answers to intellectual and practical problems through the application of scientific method. <br />
