CP 4. How to prepare a research project / a grant proposal
CP 5. Phases of the publication process: Preparation, submission and revision. Structure of different types of scientific articles
Evaluation Method Continuos evaluation: one group work about an empirical study that will be conducted during the semester and should be presented as a poster (50%); one individual work about the conducted study in the form of a short scientific article (45%); participation in LAPSO studies (1 hour 30 minutes in SPI) (5%). Evaluation by final exam: similar to continuos evaluation. However, students have to perform their assignments individually.
Teaching Method This course aims to realize a strong connection with the praxis of research. Apart from theoretical-practical lectures in which research works are presented and discussed, tutorials in small groups accompany the learning process of each student and promote a consolidation of the acquired knowledge. The students are asked to realize several works, including a complete empirical study, supporting a better understanding of the subject and permitting the students calibrate their research strategies.
Observations Students should be present in the theoretical-practical lectures and at least in 50% of the practical lectures.
