This course covers various concepts crucial to scientific research methodology, from the initial formulation of the problem through all the steps of designing and conducting the research to the final stage of writing a report. We introduce you to the definition of ‘scientific research’ and layout its methods, starting with formulating the research problem in a well-written proposal that addresses any potential ethical issues. We then examine the execution of the research, including data collection, processing, analysis and presentation, before concluding with the final stage: writing an accurate, effective research report that does justice to your work and satisfies the standards of a scientific publication.

This course consists of three modules, each containing three or four main topics. The first module explains the definition of ‘scientific research’ and its different types, methods, steps, criteria and ethics. The second module shows you how to prepare for your research project.

The third module unpacks how to collect, process, analyze and present your data and explains what makes up a publishable report.

We provide a complete overview of the process of conducting scientific research, from the initial idea to the final step of writing a report.
