Scientific reports are highly structured, long-form pieces of work that you will likely encounter in your undergraduate degree in the form of a final year thesis project or in your postgraduate research.
Scientific reports can be quantitative, qualitative, or both.
In a Quantitative report: Your research is measurable and able to be empirically tested – this includes most experimental results such as laboratory measurements and calculations.
If your report is Qualitative: Your research is more subjective; this can take the form of interviews or surveys with open-ended questions.
