    research about/ on / into?

    Would you say:

    A) I have done research about something.
    B) I have done research on something.
    C) I have done research into something.

    Which is the correct preposition?

    Re: research about/ on / into?

    I would say "I have researched something" or "I have done some research into something".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
