Creating Research with Better Impact

As a researcher, you would want all your hard work to not just be something that will be shoved in a corner without getting all the effect and impact that you hoped it would. As a researcher, it would be the greatest honour for you to come up with something that is going to play a significant role in the people that it is intended for. This is why, coming up with a body of work that is going to have a high impact not only in the academia, but to the rest of the society as well is essential.

This is easier said than done though. To help you, below are tips on how to come up with a high-impact research work.

Do not fall for descriptive analyses

You do not want to focus on a phenomenon. Instead, focus on a mechanism. A lot of researches make the mistake of relying too much on descriptions of correlations or coming up with fancy pictures, but in the end, these are just words. When you actually find something that links two effects, you can trust that you will have a better quality research work.

Answer the sae question with different methods

 A very common characteristic of studies that are highly publicised is that they tend to focus on addressing the same question with several answers. Most of the time, at least three varying approaches are used. When the same result is arrived using different methods, it easily adds more weight and value to the research in general.  This gives the impression that the results are properly corroborated.

Find a statistician to collaborate with

 Another way to increase your research paper’s quality is to collaborate with statisticians. This is especially true if you need to work with small sample numbers or big data sets that are dependent of each other. A lot of researchers often struggle when it comes to finding the right test and the proper argumentation in both methods and materials for the research. Statisticians can help address that.

Find experts in the field

The presence of experts in the field can add value to the research in the sense that they will be able to  add improvements to the design of the study. They can also help pinpoint possible weaknesses and find important literature.

Publish in the right places

 You will want to look for the right place to get your work submitted and published to help improve its output. Most researchers make the mistake of just getting their works submitted in the same journal over and over again. Look for other areas where your research can be featured, published, or promoted. You will be surprised at how there are a lot of platforms out there that can serve a good purpose for getting the word out about the work that you have just accomplished.
