Criteria for excellence in research : the 3Rs

1. RIGOUR
• reliable and valid research measures;
• appropriate and adequate controls exercised;
• ensure that results are generalizable and utility is optimized.
The applicant should show some familiarity with procedures normally adopted in disciplined inquiry as well as exercise care in taking all necessary precautions to ensure replicability and generalizability of the research.


2. RELEVANCE
Research yields results, pertinent and applicable to the problem being investigated. 
Even if pure research is to enhance theoretical knowledge, researcher should not ignore the possibility of application or applicability of research.


3. REALITY
Research should involve really important variables and takes cognizance of real-world constraints. 
Research which is conducted in near-ideal conditions and which assumes that there is practically no limit to resource inputs would be of little use if and when its results are to be applied in the real world.
