This publication contains six articles on qualitative research, primarily in the areas of social science, business and management, and human resource development (HRD). In recent times, it would appear that qualitative research has gradually started to become more popular than quantitative research in these areas of research. Having said this, however, the papers are not entirely restricted to qualitative research. The second paper, for example, refers to ‘mixed methods’ research, which incorporates both qualitative and quantitative research, while the final paper concerns research on ‘social capital’. The editors and authors of the papers are all academics or doctoral candidates/intending academics. This volume should be of particular interest to theses examiners, doctoral supervisors, and students, particularly those interested in qualitative research in these areas.

Particle Swarm Optimization is a modern and powerful optimization technique that has known rapid development since its introduction. During a relatively short period of time, the particle swarm paradigm metamorphosed from a small curiosity into an fully fledged field of research, with an exponentially growing number of papers published each year presenting new research directions and applications. The effervescence around the particle swarm paradigm and its applications provided the general motivation of this thesis --- to identify novel applications of the particle swarm meta-heuristic. Within this motivation, the thesis research focuses on various difficult problems encountered in Statistical Physics and Bioinformatics and investigates variations and hybrids of the Particle Swarm Optimization meta-heuristic in an attempt to improve the performance of the algorithm on these problems.
This book is a teacher in itself, intended to guide students of tertiary institutions including researchers on one easy way to write papers for submission to a journal. The language used is kept as simple as possible for easy understanding. The book gave a general background to writing scientific research papers, what to consider before starting to write a scientific paper, how to attract other readers to your work and it enables the reader to know the qualities the editors and referees will be looking for in a paper as part of its consideration for publication. It takes each of the main parts of a research paper and looks at what usually goes into them with practical examples. Writing research papers is too wide a field to be able to cover every aspect in one small book. Other books deal in greater detail with other areas of scientific writing especially its technical details. It is not meant to be complete but as a basic introduction. I hope that the book will assist many scientists as they undertake the difficult task of writing their papers for submission to International Scientific Journals. I am delighted to publish this book and make it available to the developing world.

This book contains eight research papers in open channel hydraulics.The characteristics of roughness materials and the properties of intermediate scale roughness and large scale roughness are emphasized. We observe that roughness materials are advantageous from the point of view of more mean depth of flow which will be used for irrigation and water distribution purpose. Also, the high velocity of flow is reduced to get the permissible value of velocity and the erosion is prevented. The relationship between different roughness parameters have been discussed.
