Srinagar, Oct 17: Vice-Chancellor University of Kashmir Prof Nilofer Khan Monday inaugurated a week-long workshop on research methodology organised by the varsity’s Department of Political Sciences.
Addressing the participants at the inaugural session, Prof Nilofer urged young research scholars to strive towards evolving as independent researchers.
“For doing quality research, it is important to maintain transparency and credibility throughout the process of research,” she said, highlighting the importance of the current workshop to help young scholars to familiarise themselves with the changing dynamics of research at the national and international levels.
“With the advent of technology, the data analysis and interpretation have changed. In fact, the entire way of conducting research has undergone a sea change. We therefore need to acquaint our research scholars with latest tools and techniques of conducting research so that they don’t lag behind their counterparts elsewhere,” Prof Nilofer said, complimenting the Department of Political Science for organising the workshop.
Dean Research, Prof Irshad A Nawchoo said no particular research methodology can be declared as “absolute” and that research methodologies are “nowadays constantly updated and modified during the course of research”. He, however, suggested that a prior research plan in hand can help research scholars to proceed in the right direction from the beginning.
Head Department of Political Sciences Prof Peerzada Irshad A Shah said there has been a major shift in social science research and this workshop aims to sharpen the “new research skills” of the scholars under the guidance of reputed experts.
Eminent academics including Prof Nisar-ul-Haq from Jamia Millia Islamia and Prof Rekha Saxena from Delhi University shared the dais and highlighted the importance of continued up-dation of scholars with regard to “new” research methodologies.
