Sample text

A researcher is one who systematically studies and explains what she/he is doing, treating the passing over of knowledge as one aspect of the enterprise whose object is to train the pupil in critical thinking, with full awareness of new ideas and new practical developments, whose outcome is critically presented and reviewed.
