The research problem undertaken for study must be carefully selected. The task is a difficult one although it may not appear to be so. Help may be taken from as research guide in this connection. The followings points may be observed by a researcher in selecting a research problem or a subject for research:
1.Subject which is overdone should not be normally chosen for it will be a difficult task to throw any new light in such a case.
2. controversial subject should not become the choice of an average researcher.
3.Too narrow or too vague problems should be avoided.
4. The subject selected for research should be familiar and feasible so that the related research material or sources of research are within ones reach.
5. The importance of the subject the qualifications and the training of a researcher the cost involved the time factor are few other criteria that must also be considered in selecting a problem.
6. The selection of a problem must be preceded by a preliminary be preceded by a preliminary study. This may not be necessary when the problem requires the conduct of a research closely similar to one that has already been done. But when the field of inquiry is relatively new and does not have available a set of well developed techniques a brief feasibility study must always be undertaken.
If the subject for research is selected properly by observing the above mentioned points the research will not be a boring drudgery rather will be love labor.
