RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Psychological research refers to research conducted by psychologists. Psychologists employ a wide range of methods in order to research and analyze the experiences and behaviour of individuals or groups. Their research can have educational, occupational and clinical applications amongst others.
There are many research methods used by psychologists, and categorical distinctions of methods have emerged amidst ongoing reflection by methodologists. All methods can be split with respect to the data that they produce; either into qualitative or quantitative types and both are used for pure or applied research.
Psychology tends to be eclectic, applying knowledge from other fields. Some of its method's are used within other areas of research especially in the social and behavioral sciences.
