Research methodology is referred to the science that studies how a research is carried out scientifically. In simple terms, it is a delineation of how a certain research is conducted and specifies the procedures or methods for identifying and analyzing data related to a given research topic. Research methodology emphasizes not only on the methods or techniques but also states the procedures of the identification of the research problem, formulation of the research hypothesis. Furthermore, it points out the relevance of applying a certain method in the context of the outlined study which helps other researchers to evaluate the research findings of the study.
A research methodology gives research legitimacy and provides scientifically sound findings. It also provides a detailed plan that helps to keep researchers on track, making the process smooth, effective and manageable. A researcher's methodology allows the reader to understand the approach and methods used to reach the conclusion.
An important part of BIGM’s activity is to promote and develop young researchers. Given this, BIGM conducts both online and offline training course on Research Methodology with the goal of strengthening the environment and quality of research culture.
