Information on the course

Examination

The examination consists in writing a reflection paper that discusses one of the topics from the course and applies it to the PhD student’s (your) own on-going PhD project.
The topic must occur among the (obligatory or optional) literature for the course (as found on the list of literature on the web page) OR be among the topics brought up during the lectures and discussion sessions/exercises.
Your reflections must be presented in a way that makes them understandable to a reader unfamiliar with your thesis work. This means you need to reflect about how to introduce your problem to the reader.

Format: The paper should be written in Calibri size 11 or Times New Roman size 12 (or corresponding), space between lines Exact: 16. The paper should be 5-7 pages long + an additional page for the list of references (containing literature from the Course).
The number of pages (5, 6 or 7 pages) does not have any bearing of the grade, but it is the substance that counts. 5 pages is fine — longer than 7 pages is not acceptable. A list of three references is sufficient, but it is possible to refer to more.
In all, this paper should take you about 3 days to write and not more than 5 days, full time.

Deadline: The paper should be handed in by Friday May, 21st.
If you have a problem meeting this deadline you should communicate this to Ingar by e-mail to reach an agreement about submitting the paper later. The postponed deadline can be no later than Thursday June, 10th.
PLEASE NOTE! After an agreement has been made with Ingar, you have to email information about your postponed deadline to Eva Sjöstrand eva.sjostrand@fil.lu.se

Grades: Pass or Fail
