Research simply means a search for facts – answers to questions and
solutions to problems. It is a purposive investigation. It is an organized
inquiry. It seeks to find explanations to unexplained phenomenon to clarify
the doubtful facts and to correct the misconceived facts.
Research is a scientific endeavour. It involves scientific method. “The

matter, but rather to a procedure or mode of investigation.
