The study of research methodology is indispensable in every field of higher education; be it social science, pure science or business studies. Though it is a critical component of all the branches of knowledge but it hardly gets the attention it deserves in disciplines across the university system. A teacher in higher education has three basic responsibilities: teaching, research and extension work. Research is the second dimension of higher education. Besides teaching and extension activities, every teacher in higher education is supposed to take up research. A large majority of higher education teachers, especially in colleges, engage themselves largely in teaching, and do not get actively involved in research activities. This is the scenario all over the country and more so in the Northeastern region. Whatever little research has been conducted in this region is methodologically very weak. Research has a special importance in the academic activities and its improvisation in Institution of his / her learning. At institutional level, the faculty also has to undertake research for their own career development. Research has become a special career now-days. More importantly, it is a definite and productive source of input, necessary for decision and policy makers to formulate and implement a policy directed towards promoting socio-economic development of the country. Therefore, to the extent possible, efforts are being made to encourage research in Social Sciences, Commerce and Management, and Natural Sciences by providing number of incentives. But to undertake research, the necessary knowledge of the Research Methodology and Research process in theoretical as well as applied perspectives is necessary. This can be obtained by own individual efforts, but more importantly, through guidance and training by the Research scholars and practitioners. This demands to organize the workshops and training programmes for the research students as well as guides. The need for organizing such workshops and training programmes is further intensified due to wide use and applications of appropriate research methods, quantitative techniques and computer software packages for objective and qualitative research. It is against these  over all backdrops, that the Sibsagar College, Joysagar, Assam is organizing a seven days’ ‘National Level Workshop on Research Methodology and SPSS’ for the post graduate Students aspiring to do research and registered Ph.D. scholars in social sciences including commerce and management, Ph.D. and non Ph.D. College and University teachers, research staff of various State Government Departments and all others who are interested in researches in Social Sciences, Commerce and Management and others.
