Writing research is the sourcing of detailed information on a given subject as the basis for writing knowledgeably about that subject.

Research may involve as little as a five minute telephone interview. It might include a major study such as for a biography in which many interviews are carried out and libraries and archives contacted and/or visited to source information. Detailed research often necessitates reading books on your topic and perhaps, on related topics.  The purpose is to create a sound knowledge base from which to write.

Factual writing usually requires some research and a good researcher will be able to come up with the tidbits that give an article or book the edge.
