The problem with research as a whole is that there are very few original ideas.  If you are going to do a study, you need to have 20 other people who did something of the sort before you for you to be considered credible.  Now this has something in part to do with the sheer amount of time that it may take to put your desired study together.  The testing of your measurement tools alone can take years.  Due to this process, some researchers do us all a favor and conduct what is called a…See More
