The fundamentals of studies that focus on research methods and data analysis techniques in the disability field focuses on finding out the research gaps. The same research gaps could serve as the areas for the researchers in applying proper methods and data analysis techniques so that the depth and breadth of the subject matters related with a disability, especially children with disabilities and their education can be analyzed properly and effectively in the coming days. Unfortunately, this kind of research is still rare in Nepal. This study aimed to access the diversity of research approaches, designs, variables, data collection and analysis techniques, as well as research subjects in studies published/issued on the subject matter of disability, children with disabilities and inclusive education in Nepal from the year 2010 to 2020. Content analysis was used as the research tool in this study in which as many as 31 detailed studies were analyzed. The results revealed that the most widely used approach, design, variable, data collection and analysis techniques, as well as the subject which frequently used, were qualitative, document review and compilation, persons with disabilities (PWDs), document review, descriptive analysis and children with disabilities respectively. There were a variety of approaches, designs, data collection and analysis techniques, as considerable as research subjects that have been used in the studies carried out in Nepal. Moreover, there are findings where some studies with the same research design have applied different data collection and data analysis techniques. Thus, it is suggested to the next researchers to choose the most appropriate methods and consider the identified gaps areas in research in the coming days.
