Osnova cvičení:

This course will help students to gain competencies for the successful completion of their research work. The course will start with introducing the philosophy of science and explain key principles of scientific work. The ability to communicate results is important not only for conveying the information itself but also for refining the knowledge: one is forced to organize, shape, and clearly express the information to be conveyed. Students will get acquainted with several forms of scientific communication. The focus will be given to the preparation of oral presentation and peer-reviewed articles, but we will also introduce other formats, such as patents Because having clear and telling plots is a key requirement for a successful poster presentation, we will show how various elements of graphs helps in revealing information. The course concludes with lectures on ethical behavior. Examples of scientific misconduct will help the participants to understand the importance of scientific integrity and the possible consequences of scientific misconduct.
