The paradigms of health research have been constantly evolving, shifting and changing over the years with the implications for nursing research. Nurse academics in India are called to reflect critically on their research engagement and develop strategies to contribute towards an evidence base that is contextually relevant for nursing practice, education and management through collaborative research. The opportunities for health research are varied and multifaceted today ranging from infectious diseases to multimorbidity with significant scope for practitioners and nurse academics to become an integral part of research teams both nationally and internationally to make meaningful contributions. Researchers are required to navigate new frontiers such as interdisciplinarity, patient-public involvement and coproduction in their research to demonstrate impact at the academic, societal levels and beyond. The current digital age requires researchers to upskill their digital literacy to be able to fully exploit the potential that it offers towards global connectivity for interdisciplinary research engagement and knowledge exchange.
