How to write a thesis paper

A thesis, report, or research paper, is simply a paper which substantiates your point of view by using supportive facts. In order to write a successful thesis, you will need to follow the following steps:

First, you must decide on your subject of a topic was not already assigned to you by your teacher or instructor. Or maybe you have a personal or business reason for wanting to communicate this information. Whatever the case, choose your topic and write it down.

Next, you will need to organize your thoughts and ideas by writing an outline of your proposed thesis. You will need to decide what information you want to, or need to, convey, such as information on your topic, your viewpoint and the explanation on why you feel this way, the facts which support your your viewpoint, etc.

Write your outline in the usual manner, by writing your topic at the top of the page, then, mark down the left side of the page your numerical listings-Roman numerals are normally used.Next to each numeral, write down the main ideas that you wish to include in your thesis. Then, mark down A, B, C, and so on, below the Roman numerals. Beside each letter, list the minor points, or subpoints, that you wish to include in your thesis.

After you have finished your outline, decide on how the thesis will be put together. That is, decide on what information will start your thesis, what information will be inserted in the middle of your thesis, and what the ending will consist of.

Using the information that will begin your thesis,write a definitive thesis (statement) and introduction. This beginning should serve two purposes: 1. It will attract the reader’s attention, and 2. It will give a brief overview of what the thesis is all about.

Next, you will need to write the main body of your thesis. In this section, you will state your main points on the topic you have chosen, as well as the minor points you wish to include in this topic. Be sure to support your thesis with substantiated facts that have been thoroughly researched.

Also, do not try to jam too many facts or bits of information into each paragraph. Each paragraph should clearly deal with one thought or idea at a time. You must be sure to switch the thought that each paragraph conveys to the next paragraph in a smooth and logical transition.

Do not abruptly end one thought or paragraph and start a brand new thought in the next paragraph without referencing the last paragraph. If you do this, your thesis will be choppy and make little sense. All of your thoughts and words must flow together into a logical balance of statements and facts.

The conclusion will end your thesis. A good ending would be a brief overview of the results of the statements made within the article.

Finally, do not forget to carefully spell-check as well as proof read your thesis. Make sure the sentences are written to clearly convey your point of view, facts and research, and the conclusion.
