Nature of Research
1. Scientific Method:
It should use the principles of science (like statistics) and should be based on logic.
2. Research Activities:
It is a research activity. Therefore, it should explore new ways to solve a problem.
3. Multiple Methods:
It must use different methods to solve a problem. Further, it should modify the method to suit that problem.
4. Interdependence of Models and Data:
The models of a problem are interrelated. Data sets are also interrelated; these ought to be so to make the research effort useful. The models of the problems guide us about the sets of information that are to be collected.
