1.1     Instructions

Students will design their  own short  research  paper,  project  proposal,  observing  proposal,  or similar.  This will take  the  form of a LaTeX  written document  using official LaTeX templates and styles used in class.

Students may  use the  same topic  from the  Written Report  1, they  may  pick a different topic  with  the instructors approval, or they  may choose from the list below:

 

  • Quantum Comupting
  • Robots in Space
  • Bushfire prevention
  • Earthquake proof engineering
  • Visualization in Hollywood movies

 

The report  will showcase your Statistics and Research skills covered in class and will be 6-8  pages (not counting bibliography). There is  a  1500  word minimum but no  maximum (it may be as  long as  you  like).

To construct your  report  you must  use LaTeX and  you can use guidelines  from the  lecture  notes  and power-point slides to  find papers  and  journals  relevant to  your  chosen  topic.   Lists  of web resources  are included  in the lecture  notes.  You can also use the book website at:

 

1.2     Report Format and guidelines

 

For  Written Report  2, you will use a LaTeX .tex file  together  with  a bibliography .bib file  you have constructed to produce  a finished .pdf as covered  in lecture  weeks 1-9.  This  report  will be original  and individual  work and  will have a minimum  length  of 6-8 pages using the  A4 paper  12pt  font  article  format found in the template for Written Report  1. Following the Written Report  1 format  the following is required. Note:  The easiest way to do  this is  to copy the template from Written Report 1,  just change it so  that it fits  your choices for  this assignment.

You will use the given style files:

 

Your LaTeX  preamble  will then  contain  the following settings before you begin the document:

 

documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}

usepackage{head,fullpage}

usepackage{graphicx}

usepackage{hyperref}

usepackage{natbib}

parindent=0pt

parskip=5pt

begin{document}

 

1.3     Report Structure

Your report  must  have the following items (see book page 11 and page 108):

  • Introduction:

This  short  section should be no longer than  1 page and  should cover the  research problem or issue and  the  purpose  of your paper.  It should also cover background literature to the  study  and  why it is important or of interest. It will also cover the structure of your paper  and tell what  you are planning to do.

  • Methodology:

This section should identify your paradigm. It should provide a justification for  your methodology and methods  as well as tell what  the scope of your research  is. The limitations to the research  design should  be discussed  as well as constraints relating  to  resources  (advanced codes that might be only available  to certain  universities).

  • Results:

This is one of the most important sections of your paper,  in this section you present and discuss your analysis of  your research data  and  statistical tests. You discuss your  results  and  findings from your research.

 

  • Conclusion:

This  is the  section  that will tie your assignment together. You will do a summary  of what  you found out in relation  to your research  problem.  You will also summarise  any contribution you have provided to knowledge as well as limitations of your research  and suggestions for future  research.  If appropriate also address  any implications  of your research  for practice  or policy.

 

  • References:

The  references  and  bibliography should  be in a BibTeX  format,  following your  Written Report  1 all students should use the following bibliography format:

 

 

bibliographystyle{apalike}

 

The ‘Methodology’ and ’Results’ sections of the text  will be at least 4 pages with approximately 1 pages of Introduction and  a short  Conclusions  section.  You may include  a maximum of  4 figures to illustrate points.  Make sure to use correct  citations if you get data  from someone else’s paper.

 

1.4     How  do  I do  this?

 

Depending  on your choice topics your individual  papers  may look quite  different,  one example is as follows:

 

  • A student chooses a topic of Quantum Computing (identify your paradigm)

 

  • The student then decides to do a short research paper  (identifies  methods  and research  topic)

 

  • The student finds some interesting data published two articles  comparing  the same a testing  setup  for quantum computing  (this  is discussed in the introduction)

 

  • The student does an additional statistical test (which is described in their  methodology  section)  using the data  from the articles  (this  goes in the results)

 

  • The student creates a LaTeX paper  with the Report  Structure above
