What if my EE research question is exactly same as somebody else

Recommended Posts

Hi !

I am doing my EE in psychology and when I am searching or my data I found one forum in IBS that there was some guys in this world who have already done same EE with exact same research question as mine in last 3-4 years :(. This is fortuitous as I have my decided research question with my supervisor and not copy from anyone. 

 

Will this be allow ? or will it affect my marks?  I dont want to change my research question again as I already did so much research.

Don't worry, it isn't an issue as long as your supervisor confirms it's your work when signing the EE coversheet and as long as you do not use any of his ideas, examples etc. to develop your EE, without a reference to his work.

If you are really worried, perhaps rephrase your question so it is not exactly the same and you can still use your research to write about it.

Hope that helps :)

Chances are, if you are writing any EE, the topic has been discussed in previous submissions in the past decades. You can, for example, acknowledge this EE that you've find and improve the methodology.
