For Students, Scholars, Researchers, Investigators, Trainees and Scientists. "If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants." Isaac Newton. This book on research is an attempt to try to answer the basic fundamental questions that come to the minds of young students, researchers, scholars, investigators, trainees or scientists. It is an outcome of collaboration between 43 researchers from 11 different countries (Pakistan, India, United States, Iran, United Kingdom, Nepal, Canada, Greece, Poland, Japan and Australia): Achakzai AM, Afghan AK, Ahmed A, Ali D, Ans M, Asad RM, Ashfaq A, Butt NM, Farooq F, Fatima M, Gilani AI, Ibrahim M, Ishtiaq O, Janjua NZ, Kakisi O, Kasi PM, Kassi M, Kassi M, Khan SF, Khawar T, Kiani J, Kulkarni HS, Majeed A, Naqvi HA, Nawaz H, Oberoi DV, Qureshi SA, Rai AS, Rathore FA, Rehman R, Sabri AA, Saeed F, Shah M, Shankar R, Sharma A, Sherjeel SA, Shoraneh F, Siddiqui S, Syed FK, Szlufic S, Yaqoob N, Zafar A, Zaidi AH Although there is a lot of literature available to answer the queries that come to the mind of a young investigator, the language is often too complex and difficult to understand and thus, aversive. Some of these teaching materials sound more like experts talking to each other. This book would act as a catalyst in providing useful reviews and guidance related to different aspects of research for students who need to be inducted and recognized as an integral part of the research community. We hope researchers benefit from this endeavor of ours. E-mail: Website:
