The Book Intended to serve as a text for postgraduate students of commerce, management, and social sciences, and especially for the first-time researchers, this well-organized book deals with the variety of research methods used in management and social sciences, with particular emphasis on the implementation of these methods. It offers readers practical guidelines for research and directs them through all the stages of research—from identifying a viable research project to the submission of a dissertation, report, or research article. The text identifies three dimensions of research methodology—research strategies, research methods and research data—that provide a structure for the book.

The book aims at explaining the fundamental principles of aerodynamics from an engineer’s point of view. Right from the beginning, it conveys a basic understanding of the behaviour of the real viscous fluid. Later, through appropriate approximations, the ideal inviscid fluid is introduced. It gives a clear exposition of the fundamentals of fluid dynamics, both viscous and inviscid, including the topic of boundary layer. The text provides introductory concepts of wind tunnel and measurements to give a balanced overview of the subject so that the students are exposed to experiments and laboratory practices at the outset. It emphasises the physics of various aspects of the fluid flow phenomenon so that the reader develops a ‘physical feel’ of the subject. This book is primarily intended for the undergraduate students of aeronautical engineering and aerospace engineering. KEY FEATURES • Use of a large number of flow visualisation photographs for illustration • Use of a large number of innovative diagrams • Adequate number of worked-out examples at the end of almost all the chapters • A set of exercise problems at the end of every chapter

This book is the outcome of more than 20 years of experience of the author in teaching and research field. The wider scope and coverage of the book will help not only the students/ researchers/professionals in the field of agriculture and allied disciplines, but also the researchers and practitioners in other fields. Written in simple and lucid language, the book would appeal to all those who are meant to be benefitted out of it. All efforts have been made to present "RESEARCH", its meaning, intention and usefulness. The book reflects current methodological techniques used in interdisciplinary research, as illustrated with many relevant worked out examples. Designing of research programme, selection of variables, collection of data and their analysis to interpret the data are discussed extensively. Statistical tools are complemented with real-life examples, making the otherwise complicated subject like statistics seem simpler. Attempts have been made to demonstrate how a user can solve the problems using simple computer-oriented programme. Emphasis is placed not only on solving the problems in various fields but also on drawing inferences from the problems. The importance of instruments and computers in research processes and statistical analyses along with their misuse/incorrect use is also discussed to make the user aware about the correct use of specific technique. In all the chapters, theories are combined with examples, and steps are enumerated to follow the correct use of the available packages like MSEXCELL, SPSS, SPAR1, SAS etc. Utmost care has been taken to present varied range of research problems along with their solutions in agriculture and allied fields which would be of immense use to readers.

"If a student researcher had only one handbook on their bookshelf, Miller and Salkind's Handbook would certainly have to be it. With the updated material, the addition of the section on ethical issues (which is so well done that I'm recommending it to the departmental representative to the university IRB), and a new Part 4 on "Qualitative Methods", the new Handbook is an indispensable resource for researchers." Dan Cover, Department of Sociology, Furman University The book considered a "necessity" by many social science researchers and their students has been revised and updated while retaining the features that made it so useful. The emphasis in this new edition is on the tools with which graduate students and more advanced researchers need to become familiar as well as be able to use in order to conduct high quality research.

Since it was first published 1980s, Doing Your Research Project has become something of a 'bible' for first-time researchers in social science. This third edition reflects advances in technology and methodology and positions the book to support researchers in the twenty first century. Doing Your Research Project assumes that the reader has no prior knowledge of research methodology or experience of carrying out research. Written in lucid, plain English, it takes the reader step by step through each stage of preparing for, carrying out and writing up a research project. Judith Bell speaks directly to the beginner student, frequently introducing examples from her own experience of, for example, supervision, the problems of getting access to data, and so on. There are regular checklists to help students monitor the progress of their own projects and the book is full of examples of good practice and warnings about pitfalls to be avoided. The third edition contains new material on Narrative Inquiry, Supervision, Intellectual Property, Ethics, Finding and Searching Information Sources (including an extensive section on use of electronic resources such as CD Roms and the Internet), and the production of Literature Reviews.
