Aim of course

The focus in this course is predominantly directed towards the development of term papers and the master thesis.

The ability to citate and reference - taking into account a provided style - is severely strengthened and will be of significant advantage for the forthcoming preparation of the Master Thesis proposal. Alongside, the retrieval of relevant literature - other than solely via google - will be reinforced.

Subject of course

In the framework of this course, an overview on different scientific publication entities and their specific properties is delivered. The participants explore the subsequent milestones in the procedure of working out a publication. Especially to the handling of the context and retrieval of related efforts sincere attention is paid. Aspects of bibliographical information will be presented as well. On top of this, the mastering of citation - and the determination of differing referencing styles - plays a major role.  Issues such as paper-based vs. electronic publishing, literature retrieval and open access will also be addressed.
