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.

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.
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.
Research methods present the strategic management field with opportunities and challenges. This second volume describes challenges and opportunities inherent in particular content areas, examines key ontological and epistemological issues in the strategic management context and also describes how strategy researchers can use particular methods.
This is an ideal text for advanced courses in research methods and experimental design. It argues that the methodology of quantitative research is a unified discipline with basic notions, procedures and ways of reasoning which can be applied across the social, behavioural and life sciences. Key designs, models and methods in research are covered by leading contributors in their field who seek to explain the fundamentals of the research process to enable the student to understand the broader implications and unifying themes.
In this new book, specifically written for first time researchers, Uwe Flick, author of the highly successful Introduction to Qualitative Research, focuses on the process of producing an undergraduate research project. Introducing Research Methodology: A Beginner's Guide to Doing a Research Project gives readers the fundamental data collection and analysis skills that they need for their first project, as well as a good understanding of the research process as a whole. It covers both quantitative and qualitative methods, and contains lots of real life examples from the author's own research. Its contents include: - reading and reviewing the literature - research design - writing up - research ethics As well as practical research techniques, Flick provides a basic explanation of methodological issues such as epistemology, the quantitative/qualitative debate and the wider social role of research, linking these to real world issues and examples and the actual task of researching and writing a project.
Drama education has been lacking a research methodology. This much needed text provides models constructed by leading researchers in the field and presented at the International Drama in Education Research Institute Conference in 2004. Each chapter in this collection from across the Anglophone world describes a different research methodology. It explains how the methodology was applied to the practice and outlines how teachers and other researchers can employ it in their own contexts. Led by the editor's chapter on the context of research, the contributions include: The Process of Institute Research Stations by Philip Taylor The Reflective Practitioner by Jonothan Neelands Critical Ethnography by Kathleen Gallagher Narrative Inquiry by Bellarie Zatzman A case study by Joe Winston Performance Ethnography by Jane Bacon Post-structuralist Deconstruction by Ian McCormick Feminist Methodology by Sharon Grady The book will be essential reading for research students and teachers because it provides models and approaches that connect with the immediacy of their practice.

“Research in social sciences is a systematic investigation process that is employed in order to increase or revise current knowledge”. Research in social sciences, especially in business management is conducted from undergraduate level onwards. Even though there are several text books and readings available in the area of ‘Research Methodology’, there is a strong need for a quick reference in this area. This book serves as a quick reference for students of business management, especially for those who are beginning to pursue their thesis at undergraduate and master’s level. This is a hand book for beginners in academic research. It answers several questions in selecting research design, reviewing of literature, analysis of data and report writing. The author has made an attempt to present this book in a precise and easy to understand manner for beginners. It is a must for those who have just begun to pursue research.
This book is an in-depth guide to effective scientific research. Ranging from the philosophical to the practical, it explains at the outset what science can – and can’t – achieve, and discusses its relationship to mathematics and laws. The author then pays extensive attention to the scientific method, including experimental design, verification, uncertainty and statistics. A major aim of the book is to help young scientists reflect upon the deeper aims of their work and make the best use of their talents in contributing to progress. To this end, it also includes sections on planning research, on presenting one’s findings in writing, as well as on ethics and the responsibilities of scientists.
