Research is "creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge". It concerns the compilation, organization, and analysis of information to increase awareness of a topic or issue. A research project may be an expansion of past work in the field.[1]


Research has been defined in a number of other ways, and while there are parallels, there does not seem to be a single, all-encompassing definition that is adopted by all who encounter it.


  1. "Research".
