The article considers new perspectives of scientific approach to problems of choosing the research methodology for the sphere of public administration. The main types of research considered are: qualitative research, quantitative research, applied research, descriptive and analytical research. A basic scheme for describing the scientific research process is proposed. As a theoretical basis for the development of public administration research methodology is suggested to use a) the concept of cross-sectoral partnership; b) the concept of a development model based on sustainability circles. The properties of "domains of influence" are defined: economics, ecology, politics and culture. The results obtained made it possible to prepare recommendations for researchers and public authorities.
