How to prepare a good academic work

by TM Maria Be a king in your own kingdom

With all this continuous assessment, the issue of doing academic work is no longer just to upload a note, to present a doctoral thesis or for the end of grade work; Now jobs proliferate like mold in a past yogurt and we will have to learn to master them if we want to approve. However, in this article, we discuss how to prepare a good academic paper step by step. If you need to hire an expert for your academic work, just visit academic paper experts here.


The importance of research

If the topic is chosen by us, let's make sure it is about something that interests us and not about the easiest thing we find on the Net. If the teacher forces us to deal with a very specific content that we do not like, we should not despair; surely we can find a much more entertaining approach. The trick is to investigate and, thanks to Google, we can do it comfortably from home.

Organization of ideas

Academic work must have an impeccable order, be it our fourth minute before our father walks through the door and gets into a rage. The secret to having such a meticulous organization consists in asking us questions: what hypothesis do I want to defend? What texts have I found that can contradict this hypothesis? Which ones support it? And after having all that clear, now it's just about writing a story that tells how our protagonist hypothesis is born, who is on the road, who is fighting (or who is arguing), and finally how, crushing their enemies with them (depending on how bungled our hypothesis is), triumphs at the end when it proves its truth.

Another way of approaching it is to choose a hypothesis already formulated and discuss it until it is killed. The structure would be basically the same except that now we tell the story of an error and how our heroine, the Newly Much Better Hypothesis, is going to leave that error in the open and illuminate the world with the truth. As simple as that.

The structure

All good academic work that boasts must follow a simple structure that will also help us organize our history and the presentation is appropriate.

Cover page

A good cover, in addition to the creativity or aesthetic taste that we want to put into it, which is optional but always makes our work stand out above the other 500 that come to the teacher, should include: the title, our name, the teacher and subject for which it has been done, the date of presentation and the university or institute that we attended.

Then we will leave a couple of blank pages before entering the subject.

Summary

As its name suggests, we must summarize in a few words (about 300) what our work is about. What thesis we will defend, what methods we have chosen to defend it and what conclusions we have reached.

 Index

We want the professor to have quick access to all the sections of the text, because if we wait for him to read it, it is that we do not take into account the other ten thousand works that fill the table of his office.

You must title each section so that it is clear what we are going to talk about in this section and number the pages. If we include tables or illustrations (which is highly recommended to make reading more enjoyable) we should also refer to them in the index.

Clarifications on symbols and abbreviations

Although our teacher knows what we are talking about, we must include a list of everything that a lay reader would not understand.

Introduction

We have to explain the reason for our work, what we want to demonstrate or tell, to what areas it involves and a summary of the documents consulted.

Body of work

This is when we tell everything we want to tell: the initial theory or how it is born, what it shows, who or in what form it is discussed and how it is finally ratified or dismantled. Of course all divided into chapters, numbered, organized and well titled.

Final conclusion

This is the part where we narrate the end of the story. The outcome of our work and the place where we respond to the uncertainties that motivated the creation of the text. Let's not forget that the end is one of the parts that are retained most in memory, so we must strive to make it a good icing that stays in the busy mind of our teacher, especially when you are ready to put the notes.
