Integrated Research

Research has always steered and guided Aboca's activities.

The exceptional innovative capacity that Aboca boasts today is the result of significant, ongoing investments in different areas of research that integrate and complete each other: Historical Research, Scientific Research (Botany, Phytochemistry, Genetics, Preclinical and Clinical research, Technological-formulation study), and Ecological Research.

All types of Scientific Research are preceded by attentive bibliographical research, a systematic investigation based on appropriate methods aimed at increasing knowledge in a specific sector. Today there are countless sources from which to draw scientific information: it is crucial to find suitable material and know how to interpret it critically.

The ability to assess the authoritativeness and origin of a source of information is as important as being able to identify it. Indeed the principal purpose of bibliographical research is to appraise existing experiences concerning the issue of interest, to assess the results obtained, and take into consideration any mistakes or omissions in previous studies.

Aboca performs all bibliographical research using varied resources:

  • scientific journals: these are the main sources for the publication of scientific research, with the most up to date and in-depth information;
  • books (treatises, textbooks, encyclopaedias, formularies): these deal in a general manner with certain topics, but are always less up to date than the journals;
  • databases: these list publications in line with certain parameters and keywords;
  • websites of scientific associations, organisations and institutions: these can provide useful information tools.
