As a young researcher in the academics, I wonder what should be the essentials of a good research. A candid research should begin with a central theme which should be spell out in a specific manner. It should also address the targeted audience. Detailed narrations should follow-up afterwards in separate paragraphs for the harmonious blend of each topic and concept. Finally, as concluding remarks, the summary of the research should be depicted in a lucid manner. The trend of research that I have seen in many of the research outcome has been worse .
On the most basic level, researchers muse greatest papers often turn in to the worst. First of all, research topic should be interesting and important as fascinating and significant papers always get more importance in the editorial. Even the time of submission is also important. Researchers may submit papers in early August or Mid-December of every year to get attention of the editorial. A worst research paper generally contains irrelevant quotes, wrong verb tense, redundant phrases, incomplete sentences, obvious misspellings, anecdotal information, unnecessary background, inappropriate materials, grammatical errors, inaccurate words or phrase, oversimplification, superficiality, mistakes in reporting results, etc .
The effect of bad writing can turn a soft research in to mean research which is hard to measure and also quite impossible to reproduce. It often fails to meet the expectations of discovering something creative and reaching a well defined goal. Sometimes it inflates findings and the outcome does not match with the original theory .
Emerging methodologies, new technologies and big data are impacting the work of the researchers. Research method, supporting development and innovation for several years, has been the central theme of research for several years. As per the feedback of the researchers, academic community is well equipped with the necessary resources needed to do research. The recent trends in research are:-
Digital qualitative methods, online interviews and focus groups, applied anthropology methods, qualitative/ ethnography, complexity theory, the intersections of qualitative research practice with the sciences, design-based research, critical race theory, approaches to quantitative methods etc .
Research, described by many, is the element of innovation. Only few researchers achieve benefits of it. Proper research should save time, cost and achieve more outcomes. To become successful you need people to know your ideas rather than just protect those ideas. Researchers should not stop doing research after start doing research. Proper research can make a significant impact on the economy of any country. Objectives and plan should be set before start doing research to achieve maximum results or outcome. One should be pro-active rather than re-active to become a successful researcher and for continuous development and growth .
