For defining research problems and finding their appropriate solutions, you need to follow a structured approach. A logical series of steps need to be performed right from selecting a topic of research to report writing. Every finding needs to be strengthened by arguments, which are adequately substantiated by data. Research in management areas needs massive experimentation and data support. Management research requires more theoretical rigours and practical insights. However, not much of the available reading material provides extensive focus on management research. Yet students are required to comprehend the nitty-gritty of doing research-right from developing their project reports to final dissertation, as part of their core curriculum. This book is well equipped with fundamentals of research and research designs. Written in a simple language, it covers all facets of management areas with details of statistical tools required for analysis in a research work. Many practical examples and tips for management researchers strengthen the content of this book. It is an essential reading for management students as well as for those who are aspiring to do their doctoral work in management. It conforms to the core syllabus of all universities and institutes.
Written specifically for students with no previous experience of research and research methodology, the Third Edition of Research Methodology breaks the process of designing and doing a research project into eight manageable steps and provides plenty of examples throughout to link theory to the practice of doing research. The book contains straightforward, practical guidance on: - Formulating a research question - Ethical considerations - Carrying out a literature review - Choosing a research design - Selecting a sample - Collecting and analysing qualitative and quantitative data - Writing a research report The third edition has been revised and updated to include extended coverage of qualitative research methods in addition to the existing comprehensive coverage of quantitative methods. There are also brand new learning features such as reflective questions throughout the text to help students consolidate their knowledge. The book is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the social sciences embarking on qualitative or quantitative research projects.

This Book is based upon my understanding in research as an academic, practitioner and educator. The difficulties faced in accepting research as an academic, my exposures about to what was relevant and irrelevant in the field as a research practitioner, my development of the aptitude to successfully communicate difficult concepts in simple language without sacrificing precisely and meticulousness as an educator and discussion with experts in the same field is the basis of this book. Many aspects of methodology were supplementary on the basis of the response of the teachers of research methods from different region. This experience has taken several forms, including research-based teaching, seminar projects, and supervising numerous bachelor, master’s and PhD theses. This work has helped me to discover which examples of other researchers’ work most serve to inform what research is about.
