Having a thorough knowledge on the fundamental aspects of conducting research and its methodology will help the students and researchers to pursue research programmes in an efficient manner. The same is conceptualized in this textbook entitled, ‘Methodology for Social Sciences Research in Agriculture’, as it dealt with all the basic concepts of research methodology. Though several books were authored in the field of conceptualizing the methodological aspects of social sciences research, this book is relatively a significant achievement, as it offered simple and lucid explanation for understanding the methodological aspects of conducting research in the field of agriculture. This book especially serves as an aid for the Academicians, who are actively involved in teaching research methodology. This material is relevant to the students of Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Extension and Agribusiness Management and suitable for both postgraduate and doctoral degree courses. This book harbours an up-dated and standard material on the various aspects of Research Methodology duly covering the latest syllabi as prescribed by the several State Agricultural Universities in India. Hope this volume will also be very useful to the students, who desire to be competent enough in various competitive examinations.
