I am working on a research project whose eventual conclusion is probably several years away. However, I have some intermediate results that are:
a) Useful for practitioners in the field
b) Useful as stepping stones towards the eventual complete solution
I’m thinking of writing up these results in a paper with the title: “Towards a closed-form solution of grasp statics”. My question is, is it correct to use “towards” here to indicate that the paper is presenting a piece of an as-yet incomplete solution?
