    Briefly explain the role of Theory in research?

    When we start doing a research, it is best to identify what is important to know before developing right questions and then continue with the next process. Here, theories play few roles; to organize knowledge and filter the data that is relevant to the research.

    A good theory should encompass well-defined concepts, clear and specific, believable, reasonable and logically consistent. Either theories have been conceptually developed and empirically tested in the certain fields and conditions, they can be adjusted and be applied in the different fields, and continuously to be tested and observed.
