"in" or "on"
What is the correct usage?
a) I am working as the consultant for two projects in (on) sustainable development.
b) I am writing a research paper on (in) women's health.
c) I am doing research in (on) robotics.
Re: "in" or "on"
Hello Shon, welcome to UE!
In these examples, "in" suggests "in the field of", whereas "on" suggests "on the subject of".
So you might say that "in" suggests a "from the inside" approach, while "on" suggests a "from the outside" approach.
I would probably use "on" for the first two; for 3, you also have the option "research into", which might be best.
All the best,
