The research process consists of a series of steps or actions. 

According to Clifford Woody, research comprises defining and redefining problems, formulating hypothesis or suggested solutions collecting, organising and evaluating data, making deductions and reaching conclusions; to determine whether they fit the formulating hypothesis.

Research encourages scientific and inductive thinking, besides promoting the development of logical habits of thinking and organisation.
