A Virtual Research Assistant usually has a tertiary qualification and adequate research experience to assist professionals with research on any specific academic and/or informational topic.
The difference between an administrative VA and a research VA is that while an administrative assistant usually handles a number of different tasks, a research VA only focuses on the requested research topic.
Before contracting with a VA it is necessary to ensure s/he has sufficient knowledge of the terminology of the specific research field.
