Description

This scientific research 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 your report. We introduce you to the definition of ‘scientific research’ and lay out 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, 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 research design course consists of three modules, each containing three or four main topics. The first module teaches you the definition of ‘scientific research’ as well as its different types, methods, steps, criteria and ethics.
