Window of Opportunity Research

Research in a new area of science in which
(1) data accrued may be 'quick and dirty'—i.e., suggestive of a trend, but not statistically robust
(2) the likelihood of answering interesting questions and creating useful products is very low
(3) the payoff may be enormous if the line of questioning is successful
