How to get started

Research, simply put, is "the gathering of data or information for the creation of knowledge and understanding". Research can take many forms, including conducting interviews, gathering samples of data, searching the internet or even reading a book. In academic settings, research adheres to certain standards and processes intended to ensure a high level of quality and accuracy within the research findings. Academic research can be done purely for the sake of the research or it can be done with a specific outcome in mind.

Indigenous community-based research is collaborative and goal-oriented; it is driven by community needs and strives for outcomes that benefit the community.
