Dissertation length

A doctoral thesis for defense under the own rules of St. Petersburg State University is a summing up of all the scientific activities of an applicant. The topic of my thesis is “Early Stages of Evolution of Salamanders and the Transition from Stem to Crown Salamanders”. Simply put, I described the evolutionary development of these animals from ancient and primitive representatives to modern, with many of the samples studied – the ancient remnants – I myself collected on expeditions. In the dissertation, I talked about my paleontological surveys over several years, about what results were achieved, and why this is important. In terms of this “summary” should be small, I only got about 70 pages.

The volume of the thesis on the rules of the Higher Attestation Commission averages 300 pages. In my opinion, such an array of text is redundant. For example, in the thesis the applicant must list all the materials that he investigated. According to the rules of St. Petersburg State University, it is not necessary to do this, so my work does not list hundreds of samples, but there are links to scientific articles, where there are all lists.

Doctoral must have internal unity.

Everything is all about the researches, but they also have significant experience in writing such works. One has only to turn to them for help, and your dissertation will not just get off the ground – it will begin to acquire content, real and competent in terms of the requirements for this kind of work. Employees of educational and scientific writing agencies are teachers, graduate students, candidates and doctors of science who are able to apply their knowledge for the purpose they need, that is, creating candidate, doctoral dissertations and other works to order.

There is nothing difficult or shameful in ordering a dissertation to people who are engaged in this type of activity every day. So you will free up your time for further work, communication with your family, and possibly rest.

The applicant must clearly adhere to the established structure of the dissertation:

Title page work

The introductory part, revealing the relevance and novelty of the dissertation topic

The main part with a bias on the practical part (research)

Conclusion (reasoned conclusions on the work done)

References / used sources

To create a doctoral dissertation, it is important to know the methodology of writing, to know the principles of text formatting, the rules for formulating theoretical, methodological and practical blocks, applications, references, etc.

Depending on the topic of scientific work, there are four types of bibliography design – alphabetical, thematic, chronological, in order of mentioning in the main text. The main task of this list is to display complete information about the sources used.

The recommended amount of scientific work is 300 pages of printed text. Each A4 sheet should contain thirty lines of sixty characters each (including spaces).
