|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
An independent course of study in which students will demonstrate an advanced and
integrated knowledge (including recent research developments) of one specialised area
of physiology. Students will investigate, review, critically analyse and consolidate
scientific literature and synthesise a literature review on an assigned topic. The
topic area for this subject will be developed in consultation with the subject coordinator.
Literature reviews of 7,500 - 12,000 words will present a coherent and sustained argument/opinion,
synthesising complex information, concepts and theories. Students will be required
to demonstrate autonomy, initiative, planning and decision making skills in the preparation
of literature reviews. This subject is consistent with AQF level 9.
- autonomously investigate, review, critically analyse scientific literature, focusing
on peer reviewed primary journal articles;
- work autonomously to create a annotated bibliography which contains an descriptive
and evaluative commentary on the key published research papers related to the assigned
- work autonomously to formulate a detailed plan illustrating how the ideas and themes
of the assigned topic will be consolidated into a substantive literature review;
- construct a scientific literature review that demonstrates a sustained and coherent
argument and critical analysis of a specialised area of physiology;
- construct a substantive scientific literature review that demonstrates an advanced
understanding of the topic.
- annotated bibliography (15%)
- detailed plan of literature review (15%)
- final literature review (70%).
