INTRODUCTORY REMARKS




Universities perform two basic functions:
teaching and research;
Research is undertaken to further
knowledge on a subject;
New research builds upon past research;
Academics conduct a review of previous
research before carrying out their own work;
INTRODUCTORY REMARKS



"Standing on the shoulders of giants" is a famous
phrase used to describe academic research;
It means we should look to learn from the major
thinkers who went before us before developing our
own ideas;
University research relies heavily on academic
publications and libraries, but since the Web
began in the 1990s the Internet has become a
valuable research tool alongside these traditional
sources.
