Description: Research is a creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications. Research is a process of systematic inquiry that entails collection of data; documentation of critical information; and analysis and interpretation of that data/information, in accordance with suitable methodologies set by specific professional fields and academic disciplines.Research is conducted to evaluate the validity of a hypothesis or an interpretive framework; to assemble a body of substantive knowledge and findings for sharing them in appropriate manners; and to generate questions for further inquiries.A systematic approach is followed in research. Rules and procedures are an integral part of research that dictate the objective of a research process. Therefore, researchers need to be guided by certain ethics and code of conduct while making observations or drawing conclusions. Besides, research is based on logical reasoning and involves both inductive and deductive methods. There is an in-depth analysis of all the data collected from research so that there are no anomalies associated with it. Research could be qualitative or quantitative in nature depending on the issues involved.So far, I have single-handedly carried out research and I have at various occasions collaborated with colleagues both locally and internationally. My research efforts to a large extent, are concentrated on Journalism, Media and Development Studies with Africa in focus
