An Introduction to Modern Thesis Templates

An Introduction to Modern Thesis Templates | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

All Microsoft Word documents are based on templates (Dotx). Templates serve as the master or pattern for the layout and formatting of your documents. Frequently, they operate in the background, and you may not even be aware you are using a template. For example, when you create a new blank document in Microsoft Word, it is based on the Normal template. The Normal template automatically formats your document page with 1.25 inch Right and Left margins and 1.25 inch Top and Bottom margins. 

A template may also contain pre-determined text, formatting, custom toolbars, macros, or other elements. When you create a new document based on such a template, some of the document elements and formatting work are already available and you do not have to start your document from scratch.

MIND MAP AND WRITE YOUR DISSERTATION OR PUBLICATION

MIND MAP AND WRITE YOUR DISSERTATION OR PUBLICATION | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

One challenge that I faced while writing my dissertation was that every time I started a new chapter, I had to deal with multiple ways of organising it. For example, there were times when I could have narrated my story village by village. Alternatively, I could have organized the layout based on themes or chronology of events that would cut across each village. There was merit in organising the chapter in each of these methods. This is a challenge that a writer would face no matter what one writes: be it a story, a journal article, a movie script, a dissertation or any book for that matter.

Introducing Thesis Templates to "Senior Professors"

Introducing Thesis Templates to "Senior Professors" | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

Therefore, it is proposed that the sinior professors attend some workshops on MS Word ‘best practices’ in thesis writing. It is essential for them to attend these workshops because many of them may be accustomed to older and in some cases, inaccurate techniques in thesis writing. The first workshop should be for all the 'faculty deans'.

A Sincere Advice to Researchers with the Farmer’s Mentality

A Sincere Advice to Researchers with the Farmer’s Mentality | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

In sociology, they distinguish between two classes of goal achievement strategies. They define the hunter’s mentality as those people who determine short term goals and they work hard to achieve them. They also define the farmer’s mentality as those people who create deep and long term goals and they work hard over an extended period of time to achieve these goals. Hunters are brighter, well-known and sometimes powerful. Farmers are more patient, determinant and game-changers in the long term but in the short term, they are low-profile or relatively unknown.

THE ONE THING

THE ONE THING | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

"The way to get the most out of your work and your life is to go as small as possible. Most people think just the opposite. They think big success is time consuming and complicated. As a result, their calendars and to-do lists become overloaded and overwhelming. Success starts to feel out of reach, so they settle for less. Unaware that big success comes when we do a few things well, they get lost trying to do too much and in the end accomplish too little. Over time they lower their expectations, abandon their dreams, and allow their life to get small. This is the wrong thing to make small."

Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves. The world's entire scientific and cultural heritage, published over centuries in books and journals, is increasingly being digitized and locked up by a handful of private corporations. Want to read the papers featuring the most famous results of the sciences? You'll need to send enormous amounts to publishers like Reed Elsevier.

Why use templates?

Why use templates? | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

When properly used, templates will help you by automatically numbering and formatting the head­ings, tables, figures, equations, and literature citations in your document. For example, if you change the format of a single heading in a template-based document, the remaining headings can be up­dated with the click of a button. Additionally, an index and a table of contents can be automatically generated on the fly—allowing you to more effectively preview your document as it evolves.

I’m going to show you how to use styles in Word 2007, but if you have an older version you’ll be fine. This stuff is largely unchanged since Word for DOS, and that was too long ago to discuss. Most other word processors have similar capabilities, so don’t despair if you’re not a Word user.

LDS&F (Long Documents Structuring & Formatting) | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

Most of the university don't pay much attention to LDS&F. For two reasons:

 

 Most  journal papers are considered short documents, total length of 90% of the journal papers are less than 3000 words . Hence to write a journal paper you don't need LDS&F.

 The hypothesis or pre-assumption that the students know MS Word very well, and that they don't need any support.

Akrasia is the state of acting against your better judgment. It is when you do one thing even though you know you should do something else. Loosely translated, you could say that akrasia is procrastination or a lack of self-control. Akrasia is what prevents you from following through on what you set out to do.

How to Write a Blog Post from Your Journal Article in Eleven Easy Steps.

How to Write a Blog Post from Your Journal Article in Eleven Easy Steps. | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

One of the oddest things that people in academic life regularly say to me is: ‘I’m not paid to write blogposts, only research articles. If my department or the grant-funder wants to start paying me for doing posts, then that would be a different matter’. Or alternatively, the argument goes: ‘I just don’t have the time to do blogging’. Or finally, the clinching rebuttal is: ‘Your blogpost just won’t get cited, and in today’s research environment, only citations count’.

From Dissertation to Book

From Dissertation to Book | MyThesis Hub | Scoop.it

A young scholar completes a Ph.D. thesis and is congratulated by the supervising committee. A first-rate work, it deserves the applause. “You must publish this, Pat, and soon,” one committee member says, and goes on to suggest two or three publishing houses to which Pat might now write. Encouraged by the response, Pat sends off the manuscript, fresh from the defense. Then the author waits, but it’s not a long wait. The manuscript comes back from the publisher. The pages, which appear not to have been disturbed, are accompanied by a note. It isn’t even a personal note, just a form letter. “Dear Author,” the letter reads, “Terribly sorry. We don’t publish unrevised dissertations.” The new Ph.D. is understandably frustrated. “If scholarly publishers don’t want what I’ve just written, why was I advised to write this, and to write it this way? I’m encouraged to publish quickly. My committee praised my work. But publishers don’t want it. What am I doing wrong?”
