We have explored the global contemporary issues in construction industry and how research is pivotal to addressing these issues. We have discussed the importance of ethics and identified concerns and solutions to unethical practices and processes. From this starting point we have introduced the basics of research methodology and how to construct a successful academic research project by identifying research problems, collecting and analysing data. Remember that research is integral to addressing the global contemporary issues in our industry and builds on a solid foundation to improve standards, efficiencies and working practices. This is the end of the free and open part of this course.
