Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of the course is to provide the students with the basic skills to structure and organize a scientific manuscript (e.g., master thesis, journal article, etc.).
At the beginning of the course the students are requested to choose a research question/topic they would like to read and write about for the rest of the course. If a student does not have a research topic of interest, the lecturer will assign one.
It is strongly advised to come to the first class with a research topic in mind.
The main topics addressed during the course will be: critical reading, paraphrasing, structural features of English research papers, tips to write an abstract, literature review section of a scientific manuscript. The course is interactive, and active participation of students is expected.
The course will be in digital format, and the Moodle platform will be used.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The final grade is based on all the following tasks:
- Active participation (10%)
- Presentation of about 20 minutes on a research topic of interest (30%)
- Writing assignment I (30%)
- Writing assignment II (30%)

Important Grading Information:
If not explicitly noted otherwise, all requirements mentioned in the grading scheme must be met.
If a required task is not fulfilled, this will be considered as a discontinuation of the course. In that case, the course will be graded as ‘fail’ (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfill the task on the student's side (e.g. a longer illness).
In such a case, the student may be de-registered from the course without grading.
Whether this exception applies is decided by the lecturer.
If any requirement of the course has been fulfilled by fraudulent means, be it for example by cheating at an exam, plagiarizing parts of a written assignment or by faking signatures on an attendance sheet, the student's participation in the course will be discontinued, the entire course will be graded as ‘not assessed’ and will be entered into the electronic exam record as ‘fraudulently obtained’.
The plagiarism-detection service (Turnitin in Moodle) can be used in course of the grading: Details will be announced by the lecturer.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

To pass the course, students have to perform in all tasks, otherwise the course is considered failed. Attendance is compulsory, one absence without notice will be excused. Students need an overall grade of 4 or less to pass the course.
