Thesis suvival guide

Swedish

For the second library breakfast Johanna Persson from the university language support had a short lecture on valuable information that might help you get started with your thesis work. One of the main point was to make good preparations, and plan for how you are going to structure your thesis.

You might want to name activities and make a time schedule to make sure you have a good understanding for the work effort involved. This will also provide you with something to relate your progress to and make sure you finish on time. Try not to get stuck in a estimation loop: (xkcd)

Other hints presented:

  • Build your own reference library on academic writing. That you can consult when you try to decide on how to structure different parts of your text.
  • When it comes to information searching you should make use of the support at the library. Also make sure to get used to different databases within your field.
  • And talk to your advisor.

Next library breakfast will focus on publishing scientific material and will be held the 10th of may 2016.
