Scholarly-VS-Intelligence Research Processes and Methods Although it is all about information and how the information is analyzed and presented to the necessary requiring parties (be it the intelligence community of individuals seeking to know how), there is a clear distinction between how the information is presented in the end, though the gathering methods might be similar.

Though the technology has pretty much reduced the need for analytics as there are now softwares that analyze data, these cannot be done away with as they are the ones checking the validity and fundamental worth of data.
Although both scholarly and intelligent research methods might seek to determine whether data is reliable and authoritative, the scholarly researchers have not embraced the notion of going out and searching for data sources as the intelligence community does with security in mind. This is very true as in the world of a scholar. there are much analysis and data validation techniques that are applied as the skills are there but not geared towards solving security puzzles. There needs to be integration of the scholarly and intelligence community research methods and processes to shape up great data analysts.
