Reparing a degree thesis
Maggiore C., Broglia S.

The thesis marks the end of a University course and must be submitted if a degree is to be obtained. As the student finds himself having to address a task that demands the acquisition of new abilities and knowledge, preparation of the thesis is often a problem, if only because of the lack of specific didactic information. The purpose of the present paper is, therefore, to provide a consultation tool where the degree candidate can find straightforward, useful information in order to proceed to the correct layout and drafting of his thesis. The choice of subject matter, where personal interest has to be reconciled with the availability of the lecturer, is the first step the student takes. Thereafter the exact subject of the thesis is selected and the title decided. The search for good reference material is indispensable and for this purpose the student has to familiarise himself with both the traditional sources and the biomedical databases. Once the references have been collected it is advisable to plan the work, subdividing it into chapters and paragraphs. The layout and structure of the thesis vary with whether the thesis is survey type or experimental. Preparation of a degree thesis requires commitment, ability and competence on the part of the student who, with guidance, can produce a paper that is worthwhile and satisfying.
