Inhalte der LV

The content of this course revolves around the preparation of a scientific paper in English. The starting point is an assigned foundational article from a very good scientific journal of our subject.

By the second class, a research proposal must be prepared from each student. It is a document of 3 pages. It must contain a summary of the foundational article, as well as the presentation of three possible research questions and the literature found in addition to the basic article (at least 12 sources from high-quality journals, no books or Internet sources).

On the basis of the presentation and the interview at the intermediate date, the seminar paper is assigned individually. It has to be completed by the end of the semester. For mutual feedback, a scientific peer review system will be adopted. Students will be assigned 2 papers of their colleagues and write a review for each of those, in which they give an expert opinion on the manuscript. The final report, also integrating the revisions to address the reviews’ remarks, has to be submitted before the end of the semester.
