Empirical Research Reports2 Spring 2005 WHAT IS AN EMPIRICAL RESEARCH  REPORT? 1:An empirical research report is structured to answer specific questions posed by readers in scientific and technical fields: What is the problem? What was done to study the problem? What was found? What do the findings mean ? (Introduction to Technical Writing: Process & Practice, by Lois Johnson Reid) 2:An empirical research report is a report in which you gather your most important information from primary sources, such as the field or laboratory, rather than published documents. The research focuses on why certain things happen. (Power Tools for Technical Communication,McMurray, Harcourt College Publications 2002)
