Why is it important that the sources you use in your coursework be scholarly sources?

The recommendations are intended for those who are going to speak at a scientific conference for the first time, and can be useful to those who do not understand very well what it is and how to deal with it all. In short, those to whom the scientist said “It is necessary”, but how to do it, I did not go into details.

How does the work on the theses and report begin? With the choice of topics, of course. Firstly, the thesis topic should correspond to the conference theme and contain something new. It is better not to take the topic on which there are hundreds of studies.

Secondly, it should be moderately narrow: you will have to give a report for 10-15 minutes, and it’s unlikely that you will be able to push the whole coursework or dissertation at this time. The speaker is usually torn between the desire to present global conclusions and the need to give concrete examples. In the bad abstracts, specific examples are either missing or hang out somewhere on the side with a bow. In good theses global conclusions are made on the basis of the analysis of concrete examples. The presentation of global ideas without concrete analysis looks unproven. Analysis of the material without a general idea looks like a school listing of facts.

Now the most difficult. Do not go away from the topic and observe the logic of its development.

Do not be afraid of specific and simple names.

You should not try to cram the entire first paragraph of your work into the title. If the name is longer than two lines – something needs to be corrected in the conservatory.

The easiest way to formulate the name is at the very end of the work on the topic. If the topic is sustained and there are no deviations from it, it will be easy to do.
