Research Methodologies: An Exciting Mixed Bag!

Main Article Content

Saraswati Raju


There are many books and articles, which discuss a variety of social scientific research methods. As such, bringing out an issue on research methodologies may be somewhat questioned. However, our purpose here is somewhat different and twofold: to expose the readers to different subject fields with varying methodological concerns having specific disciplinary edges in one place and, in the process, indirectly touch upon the various possibilities while relooking afresh at existing research trends. The mixed bag thus deals with scholars directly pointing out the inadequacies of existing doctoral theses in the Indian universities on one hand to positioning the local in the historiography as one of the research concerns on the other.
