APPLIED RESEARCH

research aimed toward answering a practical question, for example, a clinical question, rather than developing a theory or obtaining knowledge purely for its own sake. Compare basic research- pure research.

APPLIED RESEARCH: "A person studying applied research would likely be interested in putting research concepts of psychology into practical use, for the benefit of improving symptoms."
