2, 3 and 5 are supplementary.

Scope the review, develop research question, search the literature with defined queries and databases, extract information, analyse data, argument answers.

The assessment is based on presentation and final review paper quality.

Requires meeting the students

Attendance of the the first part of the course with lectures and presentation of plans by students.

The course has lectures and presentations from the students.
