Thesis Support

Writing a thesis is indeed an onerous task and looking for thesis support is the most natural thing to do for even the most seasoned college student. At Prescott Papers, we have highly qualified, trained, and skilled team of thesis writers and thesis editors who can offer you thesis support at any stage of your thesis writing and editing process. This article is aimed at giving you tips on how to write a thesis.

The Structure of your Thesis

Title Page – The title page contains the following details:

  • Name of the author

  • Name of the institution

  • Subtitle (if any)

  • Department Name

  • Date of submission or delivery

  • Name(s) of the research mentor(s) along with the names of their institutions and contact details

Abstract – The abstract usually starts with the reason of why this thesis is important. Then, you give a brief summary of the major outcomes of your thesis preferably using numbers and limitations. The last few sentences should talk about the implications of your work. The following are some of the key elements of a good abstract:

  • Length should not be more than 400 words; an ideal length ranges between 200 and 400 words

  • The title information should not be repeated

  • There is no need of citations in the abstract

  • A good abstract is explicit, clear, and succinct

  • Numbers should be used wherever and whenever necessary

A good abstract will have clear and explicit answers to the following questions:

  • Why and what did you do?

  • What question(s) were you looking for?

  • What methodologies did you employ?

  • What were the major outcomes?

  • Why and how does your thesis contribute to your field of study?

Table of Contents – This should contain all the headings along with relevant subheadings with page numbers. Subheadings have to be indented.

List of Figures and/or Tables – This section should contain a short description of all the figures and/or tables used in the thesis along with the page numbers where they appear

Introduction – A good introduction is possible only when you know thoroughly what the body of the thesis contains. It makes a lot of sense of complete the main body of the thesis first and then, write an appropriate introduction.

The introduction should ideally start with an attention-grabbing sentence or hook which could be in the form of a surprising or hitherto unknown statement that will ensure you have got the attention of the reader. The following introductory paragraphs should contain details of pervious works in the area including who had the idea first. The introduction should also contain the most relevant and the most recent study undertaken under this particular topic. You should also include the reasons for why your work was necessary.

The following elements should be included in the introduction of your thesis:

  • A purpose statement stating what the goal of your thesis is. Make sure you do not repeat from the abstract.

  • Sufficient background data that will help the reader understand the context as well as your work's significance

  • You must acknowledge earlier studies conducted along with accurate references

  • The introduction should necessarily be focused on the thesis statement and the entire section should be directly relevant to this statement.

  • You must explain the scope of your thesis including limitations

  • It could contain a roadmap of the table of contents letting the reader know what to expect in the following sections

Methodologies – The following information must be included in this section of the thesis:

  • Relevant information that your reader will need to check the credibility of your outcomes

  • Detailed information so that another researcher can easily replicate your study

  • You must describe the theory, materials, and the procedure you used for the study

  • You must include details of techniques, calculations, equipment, and calibration methods (especially for scientific thesis)

  • The methodologies section must include the range of validity, limitations, and assumptions you have made for your study

  • You must describe in detail any analytical methods you employed including references to statistical software

With the information given in this section, it should be possible to redo the study and/or experiment in the exact same way you did to verify your claims. These details are absolutely essential to make your study a credible source for future researchers.

Results – This section should contain the following data:

  • Actual observational statements including graphs, statistics, and tables

  • You must indicate the range of variation

  • You must include both positive and negative results. Remember not to discuss the results; only state them in this section

  • You must lay out the results like how a case is laid out for the jury. There should be ample explanations so that other researchers can interpret the data in their own way

Discussions – The discussion segment of your thesis paper should answer the following questions:

  • What were the major patterns of outcomes you obtained?

  • What kind of relationships, generalizations, and trends exist in the outcomes?

  • Name the patterns that are exceptions to these generalizations or patterns

  • What do you think are the causes for these patterns?

  • Are the results of your thesis agree or disagree with previous work?

  • How are the outcomes connected to the original thesis question you wanted answered?

  • There are usually many explanations or interpretations possible for the same outcomes. Make sure you consider all the interpretations with equal fervor without showing any kind of favoritism towards one or more.

  • Avoid jumping into conclusions simply because they are currently in vogue unless, of course, your work supports these unequivocally

  • What are the hitherto unanswered questions that your work gives answers to?

  • Make sure you include supporting evidence for every one of your interpretations

  • What are the significant contributions of your thesis and why should the experts in the relevant field care?

Conclusion – Here, you must state the most important and the strongest outcome that can be seen from your study. You must include only such essentials of the paper that are very important. For example, if you were to meet a person who has read your thesis after six months, what is the most important element that must strike the individual when he or she recalls your thesis? That element should be emphatically stated in the conclusion section.

Refer back to the original thesis statement and relate the outcomes of your study to that. Include all the implications of your thesis. Remember not to copy/paste from the abstract or the introduction or the discussion sections.

Final Notes

This is only the writing aspect. Before you actually start writing, you will have to humongous amounts of research work and studies. After some basic research, you will have to compile a thesis proposal and present it to your mentors for approval. When they approve, you will continue your research work and then move on to the writing aspect. Hence, a thesis can take months to be completed. It is important to stay focused right through the duration.
