Introduction is a part of work that everyone always pays a lot of attention to, therefore, it should be perfect in your work.
It may seem paradoxical to someone, but the introduction to the thesis is written at the final stage of work. The fact is that it should contain information that will be known to the author only at the end of the work on the thesis.
Now I will tell you how to make a great introduction to your thesis.
First, the introduction is written strictly according to the generally accepted algorithm:
1. At the very beginning, 2-3 paragraphs are written in which a small, so to speak, lyrical introduction is given and the relevance of the thesis topic is revealed;
2. 1 paragraph about domestic and foreign authors who have devoted their scientific works to the study of this topic;
3. The object of study – one sentence. If you have a thesis on the example of a particular enterprise, then the object will be the enterprise itself.
4. The subject of study is that part of the object of research to which the attention of the researcher is directly directed. The subject of the work is “Organization of remuneration and directions for its improvement (on the example of
Mozyr Oil Refinery OJSC) ”will be the organization of labor remuneration for Mozyr Oil Refinery OJSC and directions for its improvement. And the object in this case is the organization of wages in the enterprise.
5. Purpose of work – 1 paragraph. Here you need to say why you are writing this thesis. In no case do not write something like: “I want to get a thesis!” Or “I want to finally finish this damned university!” :-). If to be serious, the purpose of the work is formulated according to templates. For example, to investigate this, to systematize information on such an issue, to develop practical proposals for the optimization and improvement of this; Where to get such a pattern is described below.
6. Work tasks – at least 5 points. In essence, tasks are actions that must be carried out to achieve the goal of the work;
7. Methodological, theoretical and informational basis of the study. Information sources and scientific methods that the author used in the research process are indicated here. I always copy this part of the introduction either from the introduction for another similar degree, or from the dissertation author’s abstract of the dissertation found on the Internet.
8. In the last paragraph of the introduction, you should describe the structure of your work, indicate the number of used tables, figures, supplements and references.
Approximately such a structure of the introduction should be obtained and you, adjusted for the requirements of each particular university.
Secondly, on the Internet there are many abstracts of dissertations in which the content of these scientific works is briefly described. It is enough to find a couple of top three abstracts in their topics. Not necessarily stupidly overdoing information, but looking at examples of other works, it will be much easier for you. Just enter in Google briefly the topic of your thesis and the word abstract;). You can also limit the search for pdf documents.
As for the conclusion, it is still easier here. Remember – this is “squeezing” out of 100 pages of your thesis. Roughly speaking, if there are three chapters in a thesis, then in conclusion you need to place each of them on a separate page. Simply open the finished work in Word (the conclusion is written only after the main text is ready) and start viewing it from the beginning. Highlight the most crucial points of each chapter and copy them into a separate document. Here, by “key moments” I mean what should be contained in any thesis work on any subject. I wrote about this in the relevant parts of this manual. If it is remembered with difficulty, read again the rules for writing all three chapters. And one more rule – the text of the conclusion should be filled with all sorts of concrete figures and examples that clearly illustrate the results of your research.
Thus, you will turn out to be perfectly 7-10 pages. Their number should be reduced to the norm of 3-5 pages. To know more accurately, see the training manual. If necessary, you can omit some of the provisions of the theoretical chapter in favor of the analytical and design.
