Understanding the new realm of knowledge is facilitated by the research. The research engages societies and scholars to think critically and make them capable to find solutions to various problems.
The role of the education system is very crucial in inculcating the research values.
The National Education Policy has placed priority on research in higher education institutions.
Academic research is an integral part of the higher education system in most knowledge societies.
To keep the research at the priority, the students in higher education should be enthused to engage themselves in the research.
Through detailed research, students develop critical thinking expertise as well as effective analytical, research and communication skills that are globally sought-after and incredibly beneficial.
