Research is a process of searching for knowledge by a scientific inquiry which is acceptable, reliable and considered to be the best at the present time. The body of knowledge gained from the research is be put to use and be beneficial for mankind continuously and endlessly from the past, present and in the years to come. The main issues of research are composed of a search for knowledge, a method of putting knowledge to use, an implementation of knowledge and an evaluation of the above process. To put it another way, a research process is in line with problem resolution or development which starts with the following process; (1) survey of the existing condition/problem (2) creation or development of problem resolution (3) implementation of process and (4) evaluation. When the aforementioned four processes are put into place, it is called Research and Development, otherwise known by its mnemonic device as R&D. However, the most important process of them all is survey of the existing condition/problem, analogous to a diagnosis of illness. It follows that if a diagnosis of that illness is completely wrong, it will, by implication, eliminate the whole approach. Therefore, the first step of a research in a survey research which, in turn, is very important. Considering deeper, it is found that this fundamental issue should be kept in mind so that the final outcome of the survey research is modern, timely, and able to rightly and appropriately be put into use. Therefore the design of the conceptual framework is first and foremost important. And, this is so because a conceptual framework of the research is an organization of the conceptual system prior to the process of testing by a research process. The result of which is new knowledge.      There are several forms of conceptual framework. One of which is theoretical framework where by most of the knowledge are brought from one or more theories and put together to serve as a new conceptual framework for research. As of the conceptual framework, it is a gathering of knowledge from research findings, writings, articles or concepts of one or more academics and put together as a research framework, from which the research process can be carried out.            Writing a research conceptual framework is quite a task for the newcomer or novice researcher because they might be confused and unable to have access to research philosophy even though they have already been through the concept, theory and research findings. This is because the conceptual framework of each research is written in several forms. However, a research conceptual framework is very important for the emergence of the world’s new knowledge, if and only if the research conceptual framework has been already thought through or crystallized after being introduced into the research process. And thus, the knowledge gained will reign supreme. This article introduces five dimensions of research conceptual frameworks as follows; Review of literature, Grounded theory, Rational conceptual thinking, Knowledge management and Integrated concept.
