SCIE401 - Preparing for Scientific Research
This unit focuses on the advanced theoretical and technical knowledge required for the development of a research proposal including the associated ethical considerations. Students will be guided in the development of a clear and cogent research proposal that builds on the critical appraisal and literature review skills developing in SCIE401 Research Methods for Science Honours. The completed proposal will form the basis for any required human/animal research ethics committee or grant applications. Communication skills needed for the presentation of scientific submissions, reports, and manuscripts are developed during the unit. The unit aims to develop students’ knowledge and skill in research planning appropriate to honours research.
