One of the distinctive features of this book on Research methodology is the inclusion of a Chapter on Intellectual Property Rights. However, a researcher needs to not only know how to effectively and ethically conduct research, but also must be aware of the rights that the intellectual property developed during the process of research work entails. The researcher is expected to develop the mindset of an inventor and a basic understanding of the patent laws helps in this regard.
