This research is formulated to look for problems faced by young researchers with limited resources for research in hand. Few and insufficient researches in research area are the cause of ineffective research which also shows the flaws in system. The faults in the system causing barriers for young researchers have been identified and some approximate ways and appropriate suggestions are recommended to resolve them. Moreover, the present paper highlights the problems faced by new researchers such as limited resources, lack of knowledge, no platform, inaccessible educational resources, etc. The study also discusses the lacking in infrastructure and facilities provided to scholars. This research also points out the causes for which most of the new scholars are discouraged when they have observed that their supervisors are not interested and non-serious in solving their problems in research and studies.
