Definitions of research: There are several definitions of research, proposed by famous authors and scholars of their time. You will find out that the basic meaning and the context of these definitions are same.

The difference between these definitions lies only in the way the author has undertaken research in his discipline. Historical research describes and sometimes attempts to explain conditions, situations, and events that occurred in the past.

As part of descriptive research, information about conditions, situations, and events occurring in the present is provided. The latest title in DK’s clever and engaging Big Ideas Simply Explained series takes a unique approach to general science topics.

Research is "creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications."
