Exploratory research corresponds to the first approach of investigative work. This type of research is very useful by allowing researchers to have a first approach or a first idea about the subject to study and will be of great help to become familiar with the method, but without providing conclusive results. It is usually carried out when the problem is in a preliminary phase. It is a process of collecting basic information on a problem that is not clearly defined. It is a very flexible technique, which implies that the researcher is willing to take risks, be patient and receptive. This work aims to define the level of incidence that exploratory research has in university and postgraduate studies and to visualize the level of indeterminacy presented by preliminary research. The use of combined method approaches for precision and baseline for exploratory research is handled.
