Such research may be of very abstract and specialized concepts. Who wants to conduct such research? Should study the concept and assumptions of specialization to know what has been done and what is remained to do.

Theoretical Research
A research which is directing towards finding information that has a broad base of application and thus, adds to the already existing organized body of scientific knowledge is termed as theoretical research. This type of research is also referred as fundamental or pure or basic research. Theoretical research is mainly concerned with generalizations and with the formulation of a theory. It is less relevant to the practical situation of the problems. The result of theoretical research can be generalized universality. To develop new theory this research can contribute.
