This course is designed to help students in their academic professional integration. The first part introduces the French research system (organisation in EPST; means of funding, where and how to find one, post-graduation prospects, etc.). The second part of the course goes through bibliographic research (where and how to research, citation rules, plagiarism risks) and the task of writing scientific reports, posters, presentations.
The slides are an adaptation of Laure Buhry‘s ones from the previous editions of this course.
