Design researchers, academics, and practitioners almost always have a website or blog that showcases their work, insights, activities, or research... In many cases, they might look like teaching or academic research blogs, but often they look like design company/firm/agency websites. Please share those go-to websites you visit regularly, or your own design research website.
This is a two part question. The first part is about how you define research for yourself? What is your research in the broadest sense? What keywords do you automatically include when you describe your work? Why does your work fall under this umbrella, and is the umbrella too big or too small?
