Objective: This research begins with discussions in the field of “Methodology of Science”; and then it is followed up by proposing topics in the field of “epistemology of science” and finally, it tries to provide a research division for students of different educational levels based on them. Although the audience of this research is social science students; But it is also relevant for other fields of humanities. Acknowledging that some of the researches of Iranian students are considered to be of its top type; at the same time, we are of the opinion that most of them are not within the framework of a scientific work - in the sense that is intended by this article. We consider the reason for this deviation from scientific criteria to be their inability to reach the “expected problem”.
Theoretical framework: the current research is data-based and therefore lacks a specific theoretical framework; however, its main idea, on which our proposed division of labor is based, originates from Randall Collins' views on “scientific society”.

In the framework of the aforementioned proposed division of labor, the “Hijab issue” section; And during the systematic review of the previous researches that have been done regarding hijab; Formulated.
