Many students are already on the road to graduation, graduation thesis is inevitable, and they are tortured to death by their tutors, so the editor will sort out the graduation thesis strategy for everyone today, so you don’t have to worry about writing the thesis.
- Choose a Good Tutor
I heard many senior elder sisters say, “Writing the paper is not as good as the one selected by the supervisor.”
In fact, it is not unreasonable. A responsible teacher is very important. Many students may think that whoever the thesis supervisor is, it is not very important, but this is not the case.
Several students around the editor chose the same teacher to be their graduation thesis tutor. When they asked the teacher for their opinions, they couldn’t find the teacher. They finally found it. The teacher did not give any useful advice, even on the day of the thesis. , The respondent teacher gave comments and asked to change the topic, but when he asked his thesis instructor to agree, he couldn’t get through if he called the teacher. The editor could feel the despair of these students.
Some teachers will let you make changes, but some teachers just say you need to change, but don’t say where you should change. There are two extremes in our dormitory. The teacher of one roommate is very careful and conscientious. You can find typos when you change the papers, modify the sentences that are not fluent, tell your roommates what to pay attention to when defending, how to deal with the double-check of the paper, etc., really can be said to be very attentively.
And another roommate’s tutor asked her to make corrections all day long and asked the teacher where there was a problem. The teacher said that there were many problems and needed drastic changes. My poor roommate didn’t know the problem and could only make blind changes all day.
In addition, the direction of your thesis should be consistent with the research direction your supervisor is good at so that you can better guide you and give you some very practical suggestions.
When choosing a tutor, you must seize the opportunity, because a teacher can only bring eight to ten students at most, so you must contact the teacher in advance, and you can also let the teacher who usually has a good relationship with you know your paper.
If you have not selected a good teacher, then you can also contact other teachers privately to make some suggestions for your own thesis, but you must pay attention to contact privately, otherwise, it is likely to cause trouble to the teacher.
- Topic Preparation
Choose the thesis topic. Determine the general direction; the next steps can proceed smoothly one by one. Some preparations can be made before choosing a topic.
In fact, the graduation thesis does not know what graduates should worry about and prepare. As long as you are willing, you can prepare from freshman to senior year. During this time, what subjects are you interested in, or your feelings? An interesting research direction, or any innovative ideas, can be used as a thesis topic.
What this stage does is: determine a basic direction for the topic selection of the graduation thesis.
When you have a direction in the middle of the year, it is actually very easy to handle. You can get a lot of inspiration from reading books or papers through this keyword. Among them, it may take a lot of time to look up books. It is recommended to lookup papers. Remember to check both Chinese and English keywords to get more diverse results.
In particular, some papers will point out the limitations of this article and what can be demonstrated in the article. These are often very detailed research points. If possible, they can be directly used as the thesis topic. What we need to do at this stage is to choose the starting point of my thesis (preliminary topic selection) within the framework of the entire discipline and direction.
If you have no direction at this time, then at this stage, you can watch some academic programs or magazines and find inspiration directly to the topic.
Or talk to your tutor or seniors about the frontier development of the subject of recent academic developments, or even learn from the seniors and seniors who have graduated to see if they have considered any topics that have not been finalized when they were writing. As your starting point.
Late opening questions If you have been fully prepared in the previous stage to basically determine your topic, then this stage is to refine the topic, specifically to make some restrictions and clarifications on your topic, such restrictions and clarification will reduce your writing process many tutors.
If you are still not ready at this stage or you still have not found inspiration, you can choose a section you are good at to write. For example, if you are good at operability, you can do some surveys, or do experiments, questionnaires, etc., or you can think about your future If you want to pursue some profession, you can also choose the topic from the professional direction, and this will also have great benefits for your future interview.
If you really feel that choosing a suitable topic is too difficult for you, then you can directly find your tutor and see if they have recommended topics.
- Write the Outline First
What should the writing order of the essay be? Most people start the title, write the lead, and do the table of contents at the end. But my suggestion to you is to write the table of contents (outline) first.
The advantage of this is that the process of writing a catalog is a process of organizing ideas. You can put forward key hypotheses in it, and then verify them in the actual writing. Of course, the directories written in this way are often subject to constant editing and modification. But even if you continue to edit and modify, it is more efficient to edit and modify.
When writing a paper, you can create a batch of index cards sorted by topic, and sort the materials and ideas into them. In addition, there can be cards to connect the various parts of the idea, there are cards to ask and answer key specific questions, and there are cards to record the suggestions of others.
The important significance of cards is that they are the information you have organized. In the process of sorting out, you have already thought about it. This contrasts with copying and scanning data.
Eco said that after copying and scanning a lot of data, we often get satisfaction from these manual libraries inexplicably as if we have done a lot of work and mastered a lot of things. However, this is a trap, an illusion of possession. In fact, you have not mastered anything in these materials.
Now, of course, we can continue to organize the cards manually, or use various note-taking software to organize them. You have to think about the next steps in advance to achieve success
Do you have a favorite method of organizing? Welcome to follow-up and resume the day after tomorrow, the editor will sort it out and share it with you.
- Reference search information
The essential step for writing a paper is to check the information.
There are two types of materials: books/journals.
Books are an important aid. First look for books in the library. You can read anything that is related. Don’t read it if you don’t think it’s related at all, and waste time. Reading varies from person to person. Some people only read literature and do not read. I think there will be more original ideas after reading. If there is no paper book, it will be a superstar e-book. The classic and old books are very complete.
Then other people’s papers, journals, CNKI paper libraries can be downloaded, and the campus network IP is free. There are excellent master’s thesis database, doctoral thesis database, journal database, conference database, etc.
First, search for the keywords of the paper in CNKI, and then see that the abstract of the result is similar to your own topic. Then download. You can read anything that is somewhat related. Of course, you must go through the documents that are particularly relevant (just go through it again, because you will need to review the theoretical framework later). Because this part is very relevant in theory, it’s up to you whether you take notes or not. Anyway, you will have to read it later.
- How to find good quality data sources
You can use common online databases for documents or papers
- Pay Attention to the Format
The format requirements for a graduation thesis are very strict. Many graduates are qualified in the content repetition rate, but the thesis fails due to format problems. Regarding the format, the school will tell you specifically. Each school has different requirements. Just look at the school’s previous seniors or seniors.
