Field Research
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This refers to survey and empirical research in which the researcher relies on collecting the necessary data from their primary sources in the field, to be used as a row material for full-fledged research. The most important requirement for securing IPA’s financial support for field research is to be relevant to the IPA's activities and mission stated under the motto (towards better administrative development). It also requires research topics to adopt a rigorous scientific methodology, including sample selection, data collection instruments, statistical analysis, summary of results, as well as providing recommendation and documentation of scientific references.​
