Words of Dr. Ankitha Shetty
She has focused on the barriers of research and how to overcome them effectively, the different entities supporting research and providing grants. She has emphasized on the novelty of choosing a research topic that can help in publishing the research with Scopus indexed journals. She has posited her views on predatory journals and ways to avoid falling for such journals. “Referring to Scopus database journals can be an effective way of choosing quality journals for publishing research articles,” said the researcher.
Dr. Mukesh H.V.
As researchers who often work with qualitative data, we are frequently asked to review qualitative papers and to speak about how to conduct qualitative research. Through these experiences, we believe that there are prevalent misconceptions about the range of roles that qualitative data can play in research on strategic organization. Most frequently, an assumption is made that qualitative data should only be used in areas of nascent theory. Less frequently but equally problematically, an assumption is made that qualitative data should only be used when researchers are employing an interpretive perspective. We argue that these assumptions about the roles of qualitative data are excessively narrow and have led to several unfortunate consequences. For example, many authors justify their use of qualitative data by arguing that there is a lack of prior theory in their domain of interest – even when this is not the case and when they may be using qualitative data for other, entirely legitimate reasons. Hence, Dr. Mukesh emphasized on the use of various types of qualitative data analysis while exploring new areas of research.
Ms. Jyothi and Ms. Urmila
They explained the bibliometric analysis using R-studio software, which is an open-source software. They have demonstrated the procedures to carry out the different types of bibliometric analysis and the interpretation of different graphs, the ways to map a country with author, the ways to find out the areas in which authors from different countries have collaborated for research. These ways are beneficial for delving into new areas of research.
Dr. Venkatamuni Reddy
Dr. Reddy has explained about the significance levels, confidence levels, left-tailed, t-test, right – tailed t-test, descriptive statistics, inferential statistics. He demonstrated about JASP software.
Dr. Mathew Thomas Gill
Dr. Thomas has discussed about Partial Least Squares – Structural Equation Modeling using SmartPLS 3.0 software. He has demonstrated the process using a sample dataset. He has also explained about the different types of options available in SmartPLS and how to use them effectively. He has also demonstrated about analysis using other softwares like JASP and Jamovi.
