Federal Regulations define research as “a systematic investigation, including development, testing, and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge” (45CFR46.102(d)). “Generalizable knowledge” is information where the intended use of the research findings can be applied to populations or situations beyond that studied.
