Credits: 1-6 cr
Responsible teacher: Juuso Liesiö
Status of the Course: Optional
Level of the Course: PhD
Teaching period: I-V, Otaniemi / Töölö
Workload: The course participants will be awarded one ECTS credit for active participation in three meetings.
Learning Outcomes: The seminar seeks to improve the writing skills of participating doctoral students by giving them opportunities for providing and receiving constructive feedback on papers which are written by the participants themselves. As a rule, these papers are at an advanced stage of preparation and therefore nearly ready for submission to scientific journals.
Content: The students are required (i) to read carefully the paper which is made available to the course participants before the meeting and (ii) to prepare and present a 2-page review report on the paper. These reports are discussed at the seminar meeting with the aim of helping the author(s) strengthen the scientific contribution of the paper and improve the quality of presentation. The paper can be downloaded about a week before the meeting (password can be requested from the course assistant). At times, more than two papers may be made available to the participants. In this case, those attending the seminar are expected to have written a review report on at least one of the papers.
