Module "Digital Science"
Information technology has become a staple in science and research. The ‘digital turn’ continues to offer new possibilities for scholarly work and publication, but has also challenged traditional research methods and practices.
The “Platform for Information Sciences” has analyzed the related lectures and courses at the University of Graz and designed an elective module which offers a focus on information technologies in modern research practices. The certifiable module “Digital Science” addresses topics related to the technological and methodological developments and the resulting changes in actual research.
The main contents of this module – covering 24 ECTS credits – are basics of information science, as well as legal and ethical aspects.
