Mahendergarh, April 16 – ‘There is a strong case for corporate funding for conducting high quality research for finding economically viable solution to the emerging challenges. Let research be brought under the domain of corporate social responsibility (CSR). There is a need for policy implication oriented research and not only t – value significance at 95 percent level of significance with many disconnections ,’ opined Dr. Madan Mohan Goel, Professor of Economics & Former Dean Faculty of Social Sciences, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra. He was addressing the Ph. D Scholars (Humanities/Social Sciences/Commerce/Management) at the Central University of Haryana here today on the topic ‘Challenges in Quality of Quantitative and Qualitative Research’ organized jointly by Dept. of Education and Dept. of Statistics here on Wednesday.
India stands backward in research and innovations with just 2.3 percent of the research publications in the world where as China’s contribution is 16.5 percent, told Professor Goel.
To keep our passion for research and writing, let us accept the challenge of no cut and paste job which amounts to plagiarism (intellectual theft) which is punishable by Law, believes Professor Goel.
To draw policy implications (not suggestions) flowing from the objectives and major findings of the research studies is the greatest challenge in the quality of research. Let us enrich ourselves with a variety of experiences without phobias for trying a variety of research methodologies based on primary and secondary data told Professor Goel.
Let the young researchers feel motivated to apply for major and minor research projects to the UGC, told Professor Goel
The quality of research is directly correlated with the infrastructure, commitment of the researcher and guide to do something worthwhile, told Professor Goel.
