II2202 Research Methodology and Scientific Writing (II2202 Forskningsmetodik och vetenskapligt skrivande 7,5 hp) is a 7.5 credits course. The course provides the theoretical insight and practical skills required to plan, implement, analyse, and report a scientific experiment in the area of information and communication systems.
The main parts of the course are scientific methods of projects including research methodology, both theoretical and practical. It also includes scientific writing, reviewing, and presentations.
The course is given in period 1 and period 1-2. The course is divided into three parts where the parts are integrated in a project that is developed throughout the course. The three parts are:
These three parts are examined by a project proposal (or project plan), a method description, a final report, and a opposition report.
Students will work in teams of two persons to carry out a scientific assignment from proposal to final report and opposition. Each team of students will produce the following written deliverables:
The scientific report should have the layout of a scientific paper. The paper should reflect the number of hours put into it. The report corresponds to roughly 100 hours of work. As two students work together on the paper, ensure that you explicitly indicate who has written and is responsible for each section of the paper.
The above components will be developed in a staged fashion and there will be oral presentations and peer reviews during this process. Note that students are expected to give and receive feedback throughout the course. The aim of the written assignments, labs, and seminars is that students will demonstrate that they have achieved all of the course's learning objectives.
The course is taught in English. All scheduled course activities will take place at the KTH Kista Campus.
