Abstract

This panel discussion was one of the sessions in The International Multidisciplinary Perspective Research in Education and Social Sciences (IMPRESS21) conference that took place on 7-9 September 2021. This discussion aimed at giving an idea for the beginning level researcher on how to start from scratch to end and how to go through the stages of social science research. First, panelists emphasized the importance of choosing a new and original topic, then considering and feasibility of the research, then how to conduct an effective literature search and how to choose an appropriate statistical method. It is important to be in touch with reality when designing and conduction research in the sense that you may encounter some unpredictable results and problems. Therefore, it is always better to consider and plan ahead of time where, how, and with whom you will choose your subjects and conclude your research studies. Novice researchers are afraid of interoperating the results. Panelists encourage them to be open-minded and take the liberty of interoperating their results. The panel members were Professor Sefa Bulut (Ibn Haldun University, Başakşehir, Istanbul, Turkey) whose work focuses on the trauma and school violence relationship, and Assistant Prof. Thseen Nazir (Ibn Haldun University, Başakşehir, Istanbul, Turkey), whose specialization focus on school bullying and prevention studies, and Professor Ahmed Alay (University Of Preston, Peshawer Campus), and now an Emeritus Professor.
