Whether it’s writing your Data, Methodology, Results or Conclusion section: this final course helps you to finish your thesis! Because the most demanding parts of your thesis are addressed in the previous three ThesisCore courses, these final parts won’t take much of your time and will almost write themselves!
You have discussed your Research method
You have described your Data
You have presented your Results
You have included a Discussion of your results
You have finished writing your Conclusion
…In short: you have finished your thesis!
Even when great effort has been put into delivering the best research possible, the truth is that no study is perfect: there are always things to improve! Researchers often discuss these limitations and improvements in a separate limitations-section in their article, and it’s something that I always ask my thesis students to also include. To give you an idea about what you should write down, I have included a sample lesson from this course: how to discuss the limitations of your study. Click here to view this lesson!
Questions and answers
I would like to use research method -X-. Can I use ThesisCore?
Answer: Would you like to use statistics in your thesis? Maybe you want to run an experiment? Perhaps you would like to interview people? Or, maybe you really want to do a Literature Study? No problem: the method explained in ThesisCore can be applied to all types of research.
ThesisCore is primarily concerned with developing your research idea and writing your thesis. Furthermore, the course offers practical tips for your chosen research method such as: “Which articles should I include in my Literature Study”, “Which statistical model should I use” or “Where can I find interview questions”. Note however that the course does not discuss how to apply your chosen research method, such as how to design your experiment or survey, or how to use statistics and statistical software. That is left up to you. However, you are encouraged to choose a research method that you are familiar with through your Bachelor’s or Master’s study.
