Research Ethics (2ect)

The course provides tools for critical, systematic ethical reflection and resolving complex research ethical issues. The doctoral candidates will learn the central ethical questions and principles in academic research. They will be able to avoid scientific misconduct and questionable research practices in their own research and carry out ethically excellent research.

I took this course during my first year of PhD and useful to attend it but I will have to revise these ethics during practical research field again.

Research Seminars (10ect)

We have research seminars in our department of Information Studies at Åbo Akademi University where PhD students, post-docs and other researchers present work-in-progress, projects and research papers. It is a great way to learn about others' work and know about latest work in the field. It is also effective way to enhance the presentation skills and interactions. I do participate in these seminars and enjoy it!
