    reported on research he and historian Edward Larson carried out

    I wonder whether it should have been "reported on the research he and historian Edward Larson carried out".

    -----------------
    In a recent issue of RNCSE, Larry Witham reported on research he and historian Edward Larson carried out to investigate the religious beliefs of scientists.They had surveyed a sample of 1000 individuals listed inAmerican Men and Women of Science, (AM&WS), using questions originally asked by the Gallup organization in a series of polls of American religious views.The report, entitled "Many scientists see God's hand in evolution", concluded that although scientists were quite different from other Americans in their views of "extreme" positions— such as young earth creationism and atheism—they were very similar to other Americans in the "middle" or "theistic evolution" position.

    "The" is not necessary. Saying "reported on research" is like saying "reported on some research".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
