This unit implements and executes the candidate¿s Research Plan approved by the Associate Dean (Research) and expert panel at the confirmation seminar.
Working with research supervisors and/or professional/industry advisers, the candidate will identify, integrate and critically review the published scholarly and other literature that is relevant to the topic or problem in professional practice identified in the Research Plan. The output will be a research paper of approximately 10,000 words in length.
There should be no overlap between the research output in this unit and the research outputs in the two other parts of the Research Component (Methodology and Data Collection) B R & Research Component (Research Report) C R (Parts A and B).
Learning outcomesThe outcome of a research unit for individual students is contingent upon what each student brings to the work and the amount of energy and effort they deploy. However, a student who engages in the research work and training in this unit with diligence can expect to be able to :
1. Discriminate between literature that is pertinent to your research and literature that is less relevant;
2. Show a clear understanding of prior research in the area, to identify gaps in the literature and to frame research questions based on/informed by the literature;
3. Identify relevant core literature, including areas of general agreement and controversy;
4. Demonstrate an understanding of the relevant published literature relevant to their proposed research topic;
5. Critically evaluate the relevant published literature in terms of methodological, empirical and theoretical constructs;
6. Synthesise the relevant body of literature into a holistic and readable report; and
7. Identify possible research gaps that could form the basis of new research questions.

Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
