Useful Tips For Thesis Writing

Writing a thesis is a practical skill. You can't learn that from a book. Of course, there are instructions and guidelines that you can stick to while writing. A writing course can also help you on your way. Find more interesting articles related to writing in <ahref="">Custom Writing Service</a>

But in general, you learn to write scientifically in practice, by practicing and doing a lot. In addition, you must be critical of your own work and receive a lot of feedback from others. The point is that you apply the theory in a scientific text.

In general, you have two important types of scientific writing, namely literature research and empirical research.

Literature research is always an important part of scientific writing. When writing, you must present the state of affairs so far on the basis of the literature that is available. You do research from (journal) articles which you then report on. You can give an assessment or criticism. You will need a critical assessment during the literature review in order to compare the studies with each other and to integrate them into your report.

With empirical research, you add new knowledge through the research that you are going to conduct. See the writing of an empirical study as an argument and the writing of a literature study as a consideration.

Have your thesis checked

Language is just very difficult. If you have been looking at your own thesis for months, you no longer see your own mistakes. Therefore have your thesis checked by friends or family, or by a professional agency. An editor will check your thesis for language errors, make your thesis more readable and give you feedback on how you can improve your language in the future. Also handy for when you have a job! Language errors just seem very clumsy. 


Your piece must, of course, be written in an understandable way. You do not have to define or explain all definitions. Assume that a fellow student of your study must understand your text. You do not have to explain all kinds of professional jargon in detail. When it comes to definitions of theories, you obviously have to explain this on the basis of the theory.

In a literature review, the reader who does not know the original publications must understand from the report what has been researched and how this was done and what the conclusions of the studies were. With an empirical report, the reader must be able to repeat the reported <ahref="">research</a>.  Finally, you can increase the readability of your thesis by adding examples and make summaries clear by giving them a numbering.

Language use:

You must formulate everything explicitly. You describe all your reasoning step by step. This is because the reader must be given all the information to check whether the results and conclusions are justified. The style is business-like, impersonal and concise. You do not use spoken language.

Good structure:

With a good layout, your report will get structure. For a literature review, the classification depends on the subject you have chosen. A research report usually has a fixed structure: Cover page, Abstract, Table of contents, Introduction, Method (respondents, materials and procedure), Results, Discussion (conclusions and recommendations), Literature list, Appendices.

The research question is the common thread in your report. All data must lead to the answer to your question. In addition, you must formulate the problem and indicate its relevance. After asking the question and problem you can start formulating your sub-questions or sub-problems.

You describe the sub-topics in paragraphs. When you start on another aspect, you start on a new paragraph. In fact, there are no set criteria for the structure of a paragraph. Paragraphs can only be recognized by the layout; a blank line at the beginning or an indentation. Use as a rule of thumb; 1 idea per paragraph.

Literature references:

In the report, you must refer in a correct way to publications on which your thesis is based. In most cases you will paraphrase instead of citing, so displaying it in your own words. When quoting literally, you always state the page number. Consult the study manual to find out which standards are used for the literature references. The APA standards usually apply. The reference list must be presented in alphabetical order.


If you have difficulty with scientific writing, you can go to almost any university that offers courses or courses where you can learn and practice academic writing.
