    “Briefly explain the role of Theory in research?”

    In my opinion, a theory is an explanation of a researched work, and a guidance for latters, academicians, students and even layman to know, adapt and understand on a topic or an issue.

    But, even for new research work, we will have to go through past and relevant theories on the research topic to gain an understanding and have prerequisite knowledge before and during the research process.

    Henceforth, the role of Theory in research, I opine it to be the main link and base of a research for researchers to debate, and/or extend the theories behind and to resource whether new theories might be relevant to the current situation that we are in.
