Overview

Information Technology is a rapidly changing discipline.  To ensure that you are aware of the latest developments in any topic, all projects need to scan the academic literature and current professional information in your project topic area.  Most project topics that provided by IT academics, generally have two main parts: a research /and or discovery phase and an implementation phase. There will be some projects that are research only. 

(note: maths projects may have different requirements).

Research requirements

Research undertaken for your project depends of the nature of your project:

  • Software development projects require a discovery phase where requirements for your project are determined.  This will involve a range of different

tasks including a search of professional and peer reviewed academic literature

  • projects will require an initial search of professional and peer reviewed academic literature
  • projects will require some literature review, as well as a research design and implementation.
  • will require searching the academic literature and solving problems.

Competitive analyses, environmental scans, literature reviews and user research are all appropriate starting points for information technology projects.  Discuss with your supervisor what they want you to include.

In the first few weeks of your project you are required to find out what is currently known on your topic, what sources need to be consulted, what approach will you use to conduct/develop/implement your project.  Minimum specified sources for this research include:

  • Research and development projects: a minimum of 10 sources (including at least 5 peer reviewed sources and appropriate professional sources)

Interim Report Structure

Structuring your interim report

Like all academic writing, your interim report consists of three parts: an introduction, a body and the conclusion. While some general advice is provided below, the body of your interim report will be determined by your topic, the available literature and the broader requirements of the project

You are also required to write an abstract for your work that provides a summary of your research. 

The abstract should include:

  • research questions, relevance & context of the project (one or two sentences).
  • Design/Methodology/Approach:  Explain the methods used for the data collection in your project (this includes literature; and other analyses your project requires)
  • Briefly outline the results of your systematic search; the consistent themes, any gaps if appropriate (one or two sentences).
  •  final assessment of the overall evidence and how it will help you conduct the rest of your project (one or two sentences).

The introduction should include:

  • the nature of the topic under discussion (the topic of your project)
  • the reason for the project
  • relevance
  • the research questions addressed
  • the parameters of the topic (what does it include and exclude)?

The body paragraphs should include:

Methodology/methodologies

Research project (Pls use this one) Implementation projects Maths projects
 

Results

Research project Implementation projects Maths projects
 

Discussion

The conclusion should include:

  • Summarise findings
    • Restate the purpose of your review
    • Describe the overall evidence: a summary of major findings (agreements and disagreements)
  • A summary of general conclusions that are being drawn.
  • A summary of where your project sits in the literature and how your research will help you conduct your project.
    • What has been gained from the review
    • What is your take home message?
