Accepted Types of Research
The papers accepted for the bulletins must be based on any of the following types of research:
-Basic research (pure basic research and strategic basic research)
Pure basic research is experimental and theoretical work undertaken to acquire new knowledge without looking for long-terms benefits other than advancement of knowledge.
Strategic basic research is experimental and theoretical work undertaken to acquire new knowledge directed into specified broad areas in the expectation of useful discoveries. It provides the broad base of knowledge necessary for the solution of recognised practical problems.
Applied research is original work undertaken primarily to acquire new knowledge with a specific application in view. It is undertaken either to determine possible use for the findings of basic research or to determine new ways of achieving some specific and predetermined objectives.
Experimental development is systematic work, using existing knowledge gained from research or practical experience that is directed to producing new materials, products or devices, to installing new processes, systems and services, or to improving substantially those already produced or installed.
Critical review is a comprehensive preview and critical analysis of existing literature. It must also propose a unique lens, framework or model that helps understand specific body of knowledge or address specific research issues.
