Among hypotheses supporters exists a belief that the hypothesis creates the research process framework, implying that the other elements of the research are not as important for reaching the goal. This opinion directly promotes a methodology built solely on a system of hypotheses with its variables and indicators as a sufficient road to project realization. Correctly constructing a hypothesis and its system of variables and indicators is never a trivial process. The conceptual definition of the hypothesis, its functionality, classification and structure requires additional research work and in most cases can be considered a separate research project. In this paper, special importance is assigned to the hypothesis and its conceptual definition; how it originates and is discovered along with its functionality, classification and structure and the derivation of the hypothesis and its variables and indicators with all their necessary scientific attributes.
Key words: Hypothesis, scientific research, scientific research method, subject of research, variables, indicators.
