Research Methodology, Scientific Writing and Result Presentation – humanities and social sciences

 

This module focuses on the philosophy of research, research methodologies, design of research projects and the use of various research methods. It will focus on ‘first principles’ of research: What is ‘good’ research? What are the different approaches to developing research methodologies? How can we ensure our enquiries will lead to valid results and how we can ensure that our research meets international standards for scientific research?

We will look at various research methodologies to identify the philosophy and theories that underpin them and we will consider concepts such as objectivity and validity. Building on this discussion we will consider the context of our research and examine how different social and cultural settings affect research design and implementation. We will consider our role as researcher and look at how our own biases, experiences and disciplinary backgrounds affect what we choose to research and how we research it. As part of this discussion we will discuss the ethics of our research.

The training session also aims at developing active skills in scientific communication – predominantly academic writing. Through an increased level of scientific communication scholars will augment their chances to become part of the international research community. Addressing scientific communication is thus an ideal way to build academic capacity.

In the course of the workshop information will be exchanged on existing initiatives with regard to academic writing. Insight will be gained into theoretical concepts of scientific communication, the importance of research focus will be stressed, scientific writing will be defined as a key-competency in higher education, and awareness will be raised regarding the importance of scientific communication throughout the academic career.
