An Introduction to Research is a differently written book that tries to explode the myth that all research work is produced with a wry face and has to be read with a wry face. It is meant for students who are already carrying out research or are about to undertake it. It is an attempt to communicate the message that research, though a serious activity, is not, after all, 'the flower of paradise' which only angels and supermen can pluck. Every sincere and disciplined student can perform research and complete it satisfactorily, provided certain simple and basic guiding principles are followed.
An Introduction to Research deals with many of the important facts of academic research.
Some of the key issues handled in the book:
• Status of research in India
• Hypothesis formulation
• Techniques of writing research papers
• Avoiding plagiarism
• Quality in research and its sustenance
