Research is the systematic investigation into and study of materials, sources, or phenomena to establish facts, generate new knowledge, or solve problems. Employing a variety of methodologies, which can be qualitative, quantitative, or a mix of both, research seeks to answer specific questions or test hypotheses. It spans across multiple disciplines, including the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and arts, each with its own set of techniques and ethical considerations. Research can be broadly categorized into basic research, which aims to expand the fundamental understanding of underlying principles, and applied research, which focuses on solving practical problems. The process often involves data collection, analysis, and interpretation, followed by the dissemination of findings, typically through scholarly articles, reports, or presentations. Whether conducted by individuals, academic institutions, or professional organizations, research contributes to academic advancement, informs policy, drives innovation, and serves as a foundation for future studies. As such, it is an indispensable component of intellectual inquiry and societal progress.
