Abstract

A prerequisite for scientific research is the possession of a well-developed body of knowledge. Knowledge can be obtained from either traditional wisdom or scientific disciplines. Traditional sources of information usually lack any standardized authenticity checks. The main magical point about scientific facts is that they demand empiric evidence: even if traditional wisdom has empirical evidence it is a part of scientific knowledge. The scientific acquisition of knowledge follows certain predetermined steps of research with a starting point of identification and definition of the problem statement. From this article onwards we will try to gradually build up a thorough understanding of those steps.
