    • EE should not be completely original: instead it should combine (existing) research and critical thinking to produce an original piece of writing. Academic research is based on what predecessors have found, which is somewhat what you should attempt to do. IB is only concerned by too many people picking the same topic then academic honesty becomes an issue and students are not as able to demonstrate critical thinking.  With that said, you need to find quite a number of sources to support your claims. You definitely need more than two sources and there are more available in databases, libraries, and universities. As for the question itself, you should define "success" in the RQ. Also consider simpler phrasing, such as "Nuremberg Trials" as opposed to "trials conducted by the Nuremberg IMT".
    • Hello everyone, From what I understand, our topic and question for the EE have to be completely original and not done before. However, I am unsure if mine has been done before. My topic is the Nuremberg trials following WWII, and my research question is: "To what extent were the trials conducted by the Nuremberg IMT a successful undertaking?" When I searched it up, I did not find a flood of articles on the success of the trials, which was a good sign, but I did find an article that mentions successes and failures (#1) and one talking about fairness (#2), which are indeed very similar to what I want to do. My questions are: would I still be able to do this question since there appear to be articles on it already? If not, how could I change it? What research questions come to your mind when you think of Nuremberg? Thanks!

    • There are simple and complex ways to approach this topic. The more advanced approaches will attempt to find an equation that takes two inputs and predict the third property.  One advanced way to find correlation between 3+ variables is to introduce dimensionless quantities (eg Reynold's number). They are kind of like percentages but between a group of variables. Important to use physics theories to support your claims rather than to turn this into a purely statistical project. 
    • I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I did my Maths IA on RSA, explaning how it works, etc. I got a 6/6 for use of mathematics, so I believe you should fare well as long as you include detail about modular arithmetic and the phi function, as well as ideas such as Euler's Totient Function. Of course, there could be a different criteria for EEs, but i'm just telling you.
    • Hello, all who have clicked on this post I would like to simply ask you one question about my ee, specifically whether you guys think its tooo simple or not. So, for my extended essay, I've chosen to do physics (o god), and the sub-topic of astrophysics (double o god), I have come up with an idea for my ee, which is Investigating how the Luminosity, Mass and Surface Temperature of Main Sequence stars are interconnected. Is this too simple for an ee, or do you guys believe it has the potential to be a good if not decent ee? Oh, and the essay will be a database EE, (creating an experiment, and fitting data to come with some conclusion) (I won't go over the specifics such as research question and experiment that I will do since I fear plagiarism.)  As a side note I do want to study astrophysics in university, I know that writing an astrophysics ee in ib is suicidal, but I wanna do it because i believe its a good challenge.   So taking all that into consideration, what do you all think?
      Thank you, - a stranger of the internet
