“Science is a set of systematized and argued knowledge, ie facts, concepts, principles, data, information, theories and laws in a certain historical period about objective reality, ie nature and society, which was achieved by applying objective scientific methods, which the basic goal is to understand the laws of the past, present and future of natural and social phenomena and increase the efficiency of work in all domains of human activities”.

“Scientific research work is a systematic creative activity; it is a work in which, by applying scientific methods, new scientific knowledge is acquired, that is, existing knowledge is creatively used for new applications. It is a creative work on the adoption of new knowledge, with the aim of raising the general level of civilization of society and the use of that knowledge in all areas of socio-economic development. Scientists and researchers (scientific-research workers) who have been elected to the appropriate scientific, scientific-teaching and research titles are engaged in scientific research work. “
