Within this course students will prepare a scientific article in English or German. Based on a seminal article from a top journal or conference which has to be presented in an intermediate presentation, the students will elaborate their own research question, find appropriate references and work on their final term paper until the end of the semester. At least one (either the intermediate presentation or the final paper) will need to be delivered in English.
For the intermediate presentation, the following has to be prepared:
- submission of a research proposal (within a given deadline) in PDF, composed in LaTeX (ca. 2-3 pages). Content: summary of the base article as well as presentation of three possible research questions including additional references beyond those mentioned in the base article (min. 10 new references from top journals or scientific conference proceedings, no textbooks or internet sources).
- presentation of the base article and research question in fron of your colleagues: the presentation includes a short talk (exactly 10min) with slides (PDF or PowerPoint). The last slide shall present the 3 research questions for discussion.
Based on the intermediate presentation, the individual iterations to design and complete the final term paper will be discussed in individual appointments with the Professor and the final paper will be completed until the end of the semester.
All submissions (presentation slides, proposal, final article) need to be done via learn@wu.
