It is often at the end of a Master’s degree program that students start preparing to write their thesis.An empirical research-based study, written in five distinct chapters, a dissertation or thesis helps define how a student analyzes, interprets, and conveys information. Writing a thesis also helps develop valuable professional skills that are useful after graduation. While you need to spend a lot of time collecting and analyzing data, the actual writing of the thesis is yet another challenge. Academic transcription tasks of students can be done accurately with the help of a reliable transcription service provider. How can students make the thesis preparation and writing process less stressful? Consider the following tips. Choose an interesting topic The first major step in writing a thesis or dissertation is to choose a topic you are genuinely interested in. For example, if your Master’s degree is in social work, you can consider topics related to your subject, such as those of the conditions of a homeless single woman with children or so. Also, before introducing the reader to the subject matter, provide them with the broader context and consequences related to the topic. With a topic you are not passionate about, you may have to dedicate many hours and days to explore it in depth. It is recommended that serious search for a topic should begin as soon as your doctoral study begins. By choosing a topic early enough, students can use the assigned course research papers as a means of doing preliminary work on their projected research. Sources of ideas for broad topic areas may include textbooks, journals, theories, other dissertations and current databases. Begin by identifying two or three broad areas of interest and then narrow these ideas into one specific topic. Select an expert chairperson While choosing a chairperson for your project, consider factors such as expertise, accessibility, and their attitude towards methodology. It is the chairperson who approves the topic, along with the student as well as other committee members. Have a clear idea about your university’s rules, to avoid selecting a person who is ineligible to chair a thesis. Consult with your supervisor A supervisor will be your friend throughout the thesis journey and he/she should be experienced enough toassist you with advice, and help you achieve your academic goals. Make sure to ask them questions and plan the thesis structure with your supervisor. Create rough drafts, before creating the final one. Accept their criticism and make changes or rewrite your project accordingly.

Take enough breaks While progressing with your thesis, make sure to allow yourself breaks to rest and refresh. Such breaks away from your desk, allow you to stay focused and motivated. Spend a little time for your favorite hobby like painting or gardening as well. You can stay more productive and avoid stress and anxiety with regular break times and short walks. Proofreading Proofread your thesis before submission. Look out for common errors such as dangling modifiers, subject-verb disagreement and inconsistency. Also check spellings, use of italicization and foreign phrases. All references in your thesis need to be cross-checked with the bibliography before submission. Using a database during your research can save a great deal of time in the writing process. Thesis transcription services provided by an experienced provider would help students to convert their audio and video research recordings into a well-organized text format, a crucial part of the final work that earns the degree.
