Editing your thesis


Editing your thesisThis tutorial introduces you to some of the key concerns for:

  • finetuning your style
  • revising and editing your thesis

Because you become so involved in the writing of your thesis it can be difficult changing to a reader-orientation, but that is what you need to do. You must make explicit for your reader what your coverage is to be, and include all assumptions, definitions, qualifications, etc. so that any objections can be accounted for.

A thesis should have an informative title, headings, and subheadings. It should present information in a logical order; include all essential steps in any argument and make any implications clear; give sufficient evidence; give examples where appropriate; and explain why any point is particularly important.
