About this Course

Course Description

If you are a university student, you very well know the struggle of writing an academic papers - especially, when it comes to the degree thesis. One has to understand and acknowledge large amount of methodological guidelines while writing.

We are trying to make this process a lot simpler and less painful for you by summarizing all of the concepts that are necessary to understand if one wants to write a solid research paper. Hence we do not only cover these, we will also have strong recommendations for you along the way with some pretty practical tips! Moreover, you will have a chance to get your research paper ideas being reviewed by the instructor!

Opportunity to Receive Feedback on Your Paper

The course contains several assignments, where you can submit questions or thoughts that you have with your research paper. I review these assignments on weekly basis. Thus you can provide me with a question such as "Hey Robert, my research topic is ......, do you think this can be a good idea? I would like to use ..... as a research strategy. Is that appropriate?" I am looking forward to hear from you!
