Purpose

To provide knowledge and understanding of the processes of producing, publishing, and assessing research within the field of operations research and its applications in operations and supply chain management/logistics. The course should also provide opportunities to reflect on the positioning of one’s own PhD project and PhD dissertation in this context.

Content

The course takes its outset in the assessment of research quality within different streams of research of Operations Research, and how this knowledge is used to plan one’s research portfolio and career. This is followed by a number of sessions focusing on the publication and reviewing process from different angles. This will give the students an understanding of not only the process, but also the different perspectives used when their paper is assessed by the research community. The second part of the course consists of two sessions. The first one focuses on the important topic of research ethics, which will educate the student on rules, guidelines and practices, and the second focuses on the research-industry relationship from a more practical approach. The third part of the course is of a more technical nature, where the students will be introduced to a number of tools for performing state-of-the-art computational research.

The academic content of the course is supplemented with three important topics that are closely related to the successful research and publication process.

The course is equivalent to 5 ECTS.
