Meeting and consultation times
Students will have formal University, Faculty and Department level classes throughout the year, and will have face-to-face meetings with their Principal and Associate Supervisors on average an hour every week or more as the case requires. You are encouraged to assess and re-evaluate your requirements for meetings and consultations with your supervisors as the year progresses.
Students experiencing significant difficulties with their research project must seek assistance immediately, first with their supervisors and if necessary with the Departmental MRes co-ordinator.
There will be a series of University, Faculty and Department level activities that will involve a number of workshops on research frontiers, literature review, research methods and research planning. Furthermore, students have face-to-face meetings with their supervisors on average an hour every week (this is subject to consultation between students and their supervisory panel).
Required and recommended texts and/or materials
There are no pre-set required or recommended texts and/or materials for this unit.
The supervisors or other relevant staff members prescribe the relevant readings or texts dependent on inter alia, research topic. Students should be familiar with the academic journals within their discipline and the different research themes/topics/approaches that each journal may embrace.
The selected journal lists below are provided to assist students searching for discipline-based research. Students are encouraged to review the more comprehensive ABDC journal listings, and their rankings, which are available on the Australian Business Dean’s Council website at www.abdc.edu.au/news.php/100/abdc-releases-new-journal-quality-list.
