How to Conduct Thesis Research

thesis researchIt might sound awkward, but in academic life a good thesis is the best proof that you can take off in your professional career. Thesis research will take more time than the writing process itself, but this is the reality you will need to get used to.
 
The most typical tip on how to conduct thesis research is to take time. Nothing concrete, though. As to a more detailed advice on thesis research, how about this one – you have to be really into the investigation of your topic. It is nothing and everything at the same time.
 
On the one hand, everybody needs a topic to write about. On the other hand, your thesis research will last for more than a year and there has to be something to keep you going. Well, a topic you are interested in is just a reason to keep up with the pace of thesis research.
 
Apart from the topic, here are three useful hints for conducting thesis research:

  1. Get friendly with your advisor. You will not be the only person he/she will supervise during thesis research and writing. You will have to get used to the fact that all the consultations have to be scheduled. But it is worth your time, because a thesis advisor is usually the person to know if not everything then the most important about your thesis topic. The consultations will be very useful.
  2. Realize that thesis research will require constant attribution. You will have to plan your time and work to see clearly how much time you might need to visit certain libraries, conduct online research, take notes, etc.
  3. Revise your notes once in a while to see how many sources you have already studied, what is unnecessary, and what else you need to make a certain chapter complete. This will keep your thesis research alive and going.
