Research Methodology, Research For Beginner, Introduction to Research, Research Methods Basic

This is the ideal book for the beginners who want to invloved in the research arena. I read several  books related to research method but none of them is  finished, this is due to the jargon terms that make me breathless in the middle of reading. My advice, if you plan or in due process of doing research study please read the basic book first, find the fundamentals idea is important rather than hoovering around all reading materials. You will get lost in the  middle of nowhere when you use internet. For me web serach engine is the fastest and robust way to compile what you want to find but to spend several hours reading the 1200x800 pixel size of 12" to 15" moinitor will make you exhausted and your eyes will not catch or scan any idea from the materials. The traditonal book is the best. If you can get the actual journal or articles in the library is the best option to read you materials rather than reading it infront of the LCD monitor.
Here is the front content of the book that I quote it from amazon.

Research Methods: The Basics is an accessible, user-friendly introduction to the different aspects of research theory, methods and practice. Structured in two parts, the first covering the nature of knowledge and the reasons for research, and the second the specific methods used to carry out effective research, this book covers: Structuring and planning a research project The ethical issues involved in research Different types of data and data quality Analysing and organising data to draw sound conclusions Writing up and displaying data in effective ways

Another good book for the beginners is Research Methodology A Step-by-step guide for the beginners by Kumar R.

Here is some of the basic answers that you need for the beginners
  • Research Question or Research Problem is what you want to find out about
  • Research Methodology is the path of finding answer to the research question
  • Research Objective is a kind of methods, procedure or model of research methodology to achieve best answer to your research question.
You may find a various definition of the above terms, but as you can see each of the definition contain the keyword "Research Question". So, indirectly it is clearly show the important part of the research is the research question and the liable of the question is of coz the answers to that question. Anything that drive to the answers can be considered as your methodology.
