|In order to assist our research volunteer with your quote, we ask that your research request be as focused as possible. A specific research goal contributes to the potential of a more successful outcome for your project. Typical well-defined research goals will involve who, what, where, or when questions. Following are examples of research questions.
Before quoting your research project, our research volunteer will work with you to clearly identify your research goal.
