Research and communication
are two sides of the same coin.

It all comes down to having the skills

Communication skills are crucial in social research. The best researchers know how
to ask questions, present evidence and explain conclusions; excellent communication requires active listening,
a thorough understanding of the subject matter and close attention to detail.
