Work term reports

Biochemistry and Chemistry work-term report requirements and instructions

All students in Honours Biochemistry and Chemistry Co-op are required to provide a bound hard copy of their work-term report to Julie Shikaze (C2 280) and submit an electronic version of their work report to the Turnitin Work Report Dropbox on Learn on the 10th day of lectures in the study term that follows their co-op term. Instructions on how to use the Dropbox are posted under the “Content” section of Learn.

If students want to opt out of the Turnitin submission, they will need to contact Julie Shikaze.  In this case, they will have to submit an electronic copy of the work term report as well as a printed copy of all of the references used in the report. The references from manuscripts, notebooks, journals, websites etc. must have all of the text highlighted that was used to construct their work term report. Note, if students submit the work term report to the Turnitin Dropbox, they do not have to submit the highlighted references used in their report.

All Biochemistry work-term reports must be addressed to either the chair of the Biology Department or the chair of the Chemistry Department. If students have questions about topic selection for their work-term report, please contact Dr. Graham Murphy.

All Chemistry work-term reports must be addressed to the chair of the Chemistry Department. If students have questions about topic selection for their work-term report, please contact Dr. Graham Murphy.

If students are doing a double co-op term, the work-term report(s) are due on the 10th day of lectures in their first study term following the work terms.

Extensions for late submission, with reasons, must be approved by Dr. Stefan Idziak, Professor and Associate Dean for Co-operative Education.

Students are expected to prepare their reports following the formatting and content guidelines used for their WatPD11 report. See the Faculty of Science Work Term Report Guidelines.
