Title of Resolution
Research in any area shall be defined as activity which is intended to advance the knowledge, techniques, or resources within that area. An important aspect of this definition is: Research should have as its goal a contribution to a discipline, not simply a contribution to the individual. Research should be directed to some result which can be communicated to others in a form which can be critically reviewed.
