This is my second week at university.
Since we talked about topics that were not related to our reading assignments,
it was so difficult for me to keep up.
I have nothing to write about, so I will summarize what I have read.
These are just my notes which would be boring for you, I'm sure. haha

Research is a process used to find out answers to questions.
It includes questions you ask in your daily lives.
They could be raised from "why" as hypotheses first.
We can then verify them and then confirm or at least strengthen them.

There are different types of research.
The most common types are quantitative research and qualitative research.
The former is objective and experimental using date such as statistics, and outcome based
while the latter is subjective, non-experimental, interpretative adn process-oriented.

Here is a typical research paper format:

Abstract: it is a summary of the research and major findings.
Introduction: it sets the position, provides the background
and outlines the purpose of the research, followed by a literature review.

Methods: all aspects of the study should be outlined
to let readers know the possibility of replication with many details about what was done
in order for the reader to come to an informed decision.

Results: results are presented by showing charts,
figures or tables and are then provided objective descriptions,
and are then provided objective descriptions, not interpretation.

Discussion and conclusion: this section is usually interpretive and
explanatory. The main idea is restated and findings
considering research questions are summarized.
It also includes limitations of the research and possible further research.

and Notes, References and Appendixes follows.

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. a hermit crab (in a newspaper)
= a crab wit a soft abdomen, which lives in a cast-off mollusc shell for protection
2. one-night stand (in a newspaper)
= a sexual relationship lasting only one night
3. hook-up (in a newspaper)
= a connection, especially to mains electricity or a communications system
