Advanced Research Methodology and Writing High Quality Research Paper for Scopus Indexed Journals

In the last two decades, emerging theories in qualitative and quantitative research have drawn attention to the complexities inherent in research. In light of these theories, research can no longer be regarded unproblematic, objective, or value free, where data is neutrally and naturally collected, interpreted and textualized by disinterested researchers. Rather, research methodology has become a problematized and contested terrain depicting a double crisis of representation and legitimation. What is (and why) this double crisis? And what implications might it have for the field of qualitative research and for the researcher working (in) that field?

Attempting to answer those questions and the various issues underlying them is the primary objective of this FDP. We will do this by combining a theoretical and practical approach to the study of qualitative methodology in order to “learn to attend to the politics of what we do and do not do (as researchers)” and “to ‘read out’ the epistemologies in our various practices”. The second objective of the FDP is to explore both the “hows” or research (providing ample opportunities for you to “practice” them) and, at the same time, examine the underlying assumptions and values of qualitative research practices-your own as well as a variety of other strategies and orientations.

For undergoing high quality research one requires to collect, interpret and logically document the information. Selection of an appropriate statistical tool as a decision making tool is often a difficult task without proper understanding of the theoretical concept and meaningful interpretation. Thus the decision makers should be made versed with research methodology and the core philosophy of statistics.

JIM in its constant endeavor to improve management skills has initiated this movement to improve the quality of research. The Seven Days (June, 2019) faculty development programme on “Advanced Research methodology and writing high quality research paper for scopus Indexed Journals” has been scheduled keeping in view the need among academicians, researchers and consultants to strengthen their research skills. The present programme is designed in such a way so as to give exposure to the participants about research problems formulation, application of appropriate research design and skills of data generation, data processing and statistical analysis at both basic and advanced level.
