Outdoor studies in its broadest conceptualisation covers a breadth of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary considerations in pedagogy, research and practice. Developing effective outdoor research projects can be challenging for experienced researchers, let alone students or practitioners as neophyte researchers. However, it is exciting and might even be considered an adventure. This chapter outlines some of the ways of identifying a research area in which the outcomes will have meaning for professional practice. Setting appropriate research questions in an appropriate theoretical and philosophical framework is important but to be effective, the research project also has to be feasible and robust. Reflective and reflexive practice both as an individual and collaboratively can initiate research questions and a supportive framework will enable the realisation of meaningful research. With sound knowledge and direction, there are many more possibilities to be realised in outdoor research; it is a growing field of opportunity for exploration.
