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 evidencebase that is contextually relevant for nursing practice, education and management through collaborative research. The opportunities for healthresearch are varied and multifaceted today ranging from infectious diseases to multimorbidity with significant scope for practitioners and nurseacademics to become an integral part of research teams both nationally and internationally to make meaningful contributions. Researchers arerequired to navigate new frontiers such as interdisciplinarity, patient‑public involvement and coproduction in their research to demonstrateimpact at the academic, societal levels and beyond. The current digital age requires researchers to upskill their digital literacy to be able tofully exploit the potential that it offers towards global connectivity for interdisciplinary research engagement and knowledge exchange.
