Research practices and standards evolve in psychology. For instance, research is increasingly conducted online; conventional litertature reviews have been superseded by meta-analyses; significance tests are no longer considered sufficient to evaluate research findings - effect size indicators and confidence intervals need to be considered too. With regards to writing, a greater emphasis is placed on brevity and general intelligibility in research reports. Publication practices have also changed considerably with the advent of open-access and e-journals. Students will acquire skills that will enable them to meet the new challenges in the planning, the running and the publication of research projects. This seminar will be particularly useful for the research-active student who intends to publish the results of their work. 

Online-research; effect-Sizes; contrast-analysis; power-analysis; meta-analysis and other forms of data-integration; scientific prose; professional journals; impact factors; Hirsch-Index; practices and "politics" of publishing.

Students present their BA-Thesis (or the work done in the context of the empirical-experimental seminar if the BA thesis was not empirical) by using the newly taught skills in the form of oral presentations. Subsequently, they learn to write up the research in the form of a short report (max 1500 words) that conforms to APA guidelines for preparing manuscripts.

Basis for the final assessment consists of the oral presentation and the short report.
