Five Common Mistakes To Avoid In Economic Dissertation

While writing a thesis, there will always be a probability of something that turns out badly. What matters is that you know what can turn out of the mark and that you have enough opportunity to fix it when it does.

1

CONTRACTIONS

CONTRACTIONS

There are confinements for undergraduates to use contractions in economics research papers, contractions and Shortened terms like e.g. (example) should not apply repeatedly. You should discard the passive voice, and you should learn to write simple sentences without complex adjoined sentences and hyperbolic expletives. For example, at times, students think that a way to get a reward is to write in a classic style. They jump to an introductory paragraph like “people wander in dreamy enchantment and expect God’s gift after the recession being over in the share/stock market." Just like in these examples, students exaggerated while trying to explain the condition of the share market. So students should directly identify the reasons, and they should give instant solutions to individuals that should save their resources.

TEDIOUS TOPIC

TEDIOUS TOPIC

Writing a thesis seems to take an eternity; it will take months even years. For that reason, choosing an interesting topic is right for your health. Maybe you pick a topic that will help you in building your career? Or you'll be propelled by a subject in another module on your course? In any case, trust me, maintaining a motivation would be easier if the topic you choose intrigues you. Otherwise, it can jeopardize your dissertation in two different ways; firstly, you won't be able to attract the potential audience because of the boring topic and secondly your absence of interest will make it difficult for you to read it yourself.

SUPERFICIALITY

Most of the time, students think that economics is all about government policies and business. However, it's a social science and applied to a variety of areas of human behavior. While considering economics dissertation topics, think about all those economists once who specialize in areas like sports economics, coting behavior, and economics of crime, the environment, and the family. Much of the critical work in economics has been done on issues like addiction, abortion, and even on obesity.

DISORGANIZATION

DISORGANIZATION

Indeed, even engaged and perfect idea can be weekend by poor organization and absence of structure. Utilize subheadings and comprehend the scope and reason of each part to guarantee a sensible and precise movement of thoughts and significant connections between entries of content. Otherwise, you won't be able to build logical reasoning behind your references. It would give an impression of just replication of other words. So keep the dissertation waves from viable topic to proposal crest, followed by data collection, analysis, writing chapters and finally the defense.

START LATE

START LATE

No doubt, your university department will be good at supporting to carry out the economic side of a dissertation. For example, providing a specialized supervisor and allowing access to statistical software and academic journals. However, I can say they will be least concerned about your management side. It's no fault on their side, being a doctoral student, you are supposed to study independently. Therefore, if your university doesn't work on formal deadlines, then draw up some yourself at the start with your supervisor. You plan meetings with them; then this will go about as a commitment mechanism.
This is not an exhaustive list of things that you must do, keep looking for ways, go for a hit and trail approach to find out what suits you best. Once you hit the right spot you will be set for your entire academic career.

GOOD LUCK, FOLKS!
