This journal article may be in the form of a review article or original research, and it must have a strength and conditioning focus. Despite it not being mandatory, if you decide to collect data for an original research project, you will be required to obtain ethics approval prior to the start of data collection.

There are no suggested textbooks for this unit as students will be required to read journal articles of the self-selected area of research, as part of their manuscript writing exercise. The library has a wide range of relevant journals that students can access online. Students will also have short-term access to books and e-books that the library loans to the students, however, the majority of the reading required for this unit will be based on contemporary research journal articles.

Special assessment requirements
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.

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.
Students are expected to engage with the unit convenor and discuss their data, manuscript and any other aspects of the manuscript writing experience throughout the semester.
