What does it take to do a thesis at BMI?

For getting the most out of your time and optimize the supervision, we recommend some workshops and readings as preparation before you start your project. Some topics like academic information seeking, reference handling and good scientific practice are must-haves.

Discuss with your supervisor which elements of the ones listed below will otherwise be relevant for you.


Literature databases

Unless you have already attended a course in literature mining, you should sign up for literature search workshop (PubMed, Embase) offered by the Copenhagen University Library (KUB).
Here is the link to KUB’s course and workshop overview.

Literature handling

You will need to use a reference management programme to handle the references in your project report. The Copenhagen University Library offers workshops regularly for a variety of different reference management programs (e.g. Endnote or the open source program Zotero).

Check with your supervisor which program they recommend/use themselves and participate in the respective course.
Here is the link to KUB’s course and workshop overview.

Online course on Absalon about academic information seeking, reference handling and good scientific practise (in Danish) developed by the Copenhagen University library (<1 hour to complete).



Use of figures and illustrations

When using figures from other sources in your report or thesis, you need to respect copyright rules and obtain rights and permissions that you ideally save in the same folder as all your other materials related to your project.

Here is an overall guide for how to go about both, figures from journals and figures under Creative Commons Licences.

You can read about general good scientific practice on the University pages for students.



Toolbox in English Medium Instruction

You can watch short videos that are part of an online toolbox for academic reading and writing developed by the Centre of Internationalization and Parallel Language Use and Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports at the University of Copenhagen. Originally developed for Master projects, it is likewise suited for bachelor or other projects.
