What is Research ? According to John W. Best, “Research may be defined as the systematic and objective analysis and recording of controlled observations that may lead to the developments of generalizations, principles, or theories, resulting in prediction and possibly ultimate control or events.” Research fulfills the gap of knowledge.
Research Process Realizing Problem identification Theoretical framework Hypothesis formulation Research design Collection of data Data analysis and interpretation and Generalization of data
Introduction- Scientific Research Science is the study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world in systematic manner specially through observation and experiment. Results of science are developed from Observation and experiments They have the relationship of Cause and effect. Able to tested and retested Universally true principle
Introduction- Scientific Research So the result of Scientific Research Rigid Empirically testable Clearly defined variables Facilitates Direct observation and Correction Have fixed answer (Objectivity) Replicability (Can be tested again and again) Scientific research is focused goal of problem solving.It follows certain scientific steps, methods and it has the nature of replicability.
Characteristics of scientific research Its primary goal is to pursuit of truth as determined by logical consideration. The following are the main key characteristics: 1. Purposiveness: 2. Objectivity: 3. Replicability 4. Reliability 5. Validity 6. Rigor 7. Testability and generality

Conclusion Scientific research follows scientific methods and tools to explains its variable. So it is true to say that “Scientific research relies on Real science rather than Idle science”
