The best thesis is a project that combines an innovative idea; exhaustive, creative research; and strong argumentation to produce a work that adds something memorable to the target discipline and that convinces its readers of its point. . . . .
After students write and defend their theses successfully, they often send their work to a book bindery, which publishes it in book form. Students then give those theses in book form to the university library, which stores them in the thesis archive room. The thesis archive room is the university's showroom of its students' best and most engaging work. . . . .
A research paper thesis discusses a selected topic in a highly detailed, highly informed way. Research paper theses require the strongest research that a student has ever conducted; they are the culmination of a college career of learning to conduct research, to determine the value of research sources, and to synthesize that information in writing. . . . .
The literature review serves an indispensable purpose in the academic world. Because no one can read every work of literature in the world, the literature reviews tell potential readers whether or not they should read the work. The literature reviews serve, in effect, as an information exchange in which the review writer tells the review reader what the work of literature accomplishes, and if the reader believes the analysis of the writer, he or she decides accordingly whether or not to read the work. Therefore, the literature review writer should form his or her opinions carefully and should argue them adeptly in the review. . . . .
In a thesis layout, the writer combines several elements to present the reader with the most accessible reading experience possible. The goal of any thesis layout is clarity. A thesis that has a confusing layout will present a less convincing argument to the reader simply by way of the reader's not understanding what is happening therein. These elements that combine to form thesis layouts are the title page, abstract (if applicable), table of contents, body of the text divided into chapters, bibliography, index, and appendices. . . . .
