Research Methods in Social Sciences

Ram Dutt Sharma (Author)
Synopsis Research Methods in Social Sciences is a very necessary addition to the bookshelves of all serious scholars of the social science disciplines as well as those intending to study or make a mark in research in social science subjects. The intention of the writer of this useful volume is to put beginners in the field on the right track from the very start. Simultaneously, this volume will prove an invaluable reference book for confirming experienced researchers’ methodology. The “formulation of research problems” requires a clearheaded approach; the scientific method of conducting a social science investigation must follow a logical and conventionally accepted path. This book provides the social scientist with detailed instruction on the method of formulating or constructing hypotheses so that the guidance of a formal supervisor is not essential. In fact, this book can be seen in the nature of a researcher’s blueprint for the construction of his research edifice. Among the many difficult or uncommon awkward aspects of research that the writer deals with concepts, problems and theory formulation budgeting of time, financial implications, data collection and content analysis. The elucidation of the Writer’s perspective on research-work under the title, “survey research method”, will enable students to undertake surveys of communities, tribes or other ethnic groups with confidence. Separate section on interviewing methods, questionnaire preparation and statistical analysis round off a well-conceived approach to the subject of social sciences research methodology.
