Royce A. Singleton and Bruce C. Straits have said that scientific social research consists of the process of formulating and seeking answers to question about the social world."

Theodorson and Theodorson have maintained that scientific methods is building of a body of scientific knowledge through observation experimentation generalization and verification.
According to Karl Pearson . " The scientific methods is one and same in the branches ( of science) and that method is the of all logically trained minds..... the unity of all sciences consists alone in its methods not its material the man who classifies facts of any kind whatever who sees their mutual relation and describes their sequences is applying the scientific methods and is a man of science."

Scientific methods is the pursuit of truth as determined by logical considerations. The ideal of science is to achieve a systematic interrelation of facts. Scientific methods attempts to achieve this ideal by experimentation observation logical arguments from accepted postulates and a combination of these three in varying proportions."

Scientific Research relies on the application of the scientific method a harnessing of curiosity. This research provides scientific intonation and theories for the explanation of the nature and the properties of humans. It makes practical applications possible. Scientific research is funded by public authorities by charitable organisations and by private groups including many companies. Scientific research can be subdivided into different classifications.

In scientific methods logic aids in formulating propositions explicitly and accurately so that their possible alternatives becomes clear. Further logic develops the consequences of such alternatives and when these are compared with observable phenomena it becomes possible for the researcher or the scientist to state which alternative is most in harmony with the observe facts. All this is done through experimentation and survey investigation which constitute the integral parts of scientific method.
