Introduction
              Professional and disciplinary researches are two perspectives that are similar yet different. Disciplinary research is concerned with the act of getting information and analyzing it for a particular discipline such as accounting. Professional research is the one carried out by graduate students, professors and any other field that is concerned with a study to analyze a student or a person’s ability to do carry out a study. This paper looks at the two perspectives and offers a case study of professional research.
Analysis
              The online marketing research is hailed from many different points of views. The response rate is big and the base for the research is wide. It is multifaceted and involves response from many and diverse people. This leads to a good result from which to base our arguments. Though the same methodology is used, questionnaires that are similar, it is evident that online research in marketing generates better and informative responses than the postal research (Adam and MacDonald, 2003).
              Though the discipline of marketing can be able to gauge and evaluate the type of persons to respond to their questions as well as demography dynamics using the postal way, it is really hard to do that using the online way. This is because it is easy to say that the respondents are over 30 years and have a degree but this may form a small population of your response. Also the respondents may be required to come from a certain area but unless there is software to trend the whereabouts of the populace answering the questions, it is hard to do that (Opperman, 1995).
              The online data collection may restrict the respondents from answering some questions especially if they touch on personal lives of the respondents due to the perceived lack of security and trust of online usage. This propels the usage of postal data collection at a high pedestal in terms of better and well responded questions. Therefore its usage for analysis is better and the outcome more informative. The online way is also quite chap and the access for uninhibited population for data collection is enormous as compared to the postal way that is bound to be quite expensive (Hansen, 2000).
Case Study
              Teachers in this study carried out a research in which they wanted to know the impact of acquiring a second language to students and people. Research is the driver of every profession worldwide including the teaching profession. The teachers involved themselves in studying the impact a second language acquisition, each carrying his/her study and using an earlier study on the same topic as the baseline. A specific group of teachers was the target group. They were sent questionnaires with 28 questions asking about their perceptions regarding teacher research (Adam and MacDonald, 2003).
              The teachers also employed personal and group interviews and each teacher involved was given a certain theme to tackle. Different and very divergent responses emerged and reasons that may have fostered this were analyzed. This included a big workload for teachers that constrained them time wise and the different administrations in schools that had different views in terms of encouraging teacher research. The teachers also had the problem of managing and understanding the whole research process and the manner to conduct it. While some may have employed emails on their own, it became hard for them to use the prescribed methods (Jeurrisen and Margaret, 2006).
Conclusion
              Professional discipline research can be interesting and enjoyable if the participants find it so. The participants include the target audience and the interviewers. The methods used may be the defining factor of the results and analysis as it was noted with the online and the postal responses. In the case study it is also evident that the time and knowledge of research affects the findings.

If you wish to be great at writing essays or other written piece very quickly then it needs practicing. And it needs practicing a great deal. Writing is really a skill which may be improved as time passes if you're prepared to put enough hrs and energy inside it.
