Classification of theses of scientific works
Such abstracts can be presented in two main groups:
Written abstracts on existing material (a large article or report).
Written abstracts before the report.
In the first case, the main difficulty in compiling theses is the need to significantly reduce the amount of printed text while maximizing its content. The worse the author owns the material, the harder it is for him to express his thoughts briefly. In this situation, the same recipe will help as in the compilation of theses based on materials of another author (given in the penultimate paragraph of the Introduction).
The most common situation of the second type is when first writing theses, which the author eventually expands to the size of the article. This is precisely what the authors of the theses of reports submitted to scientific conferences do.
The main difficulty in this case is that the author has not fully formed his idea of what he wants to write. In scientific studies, this is a normal situation. First comes the idea that you want to write. The record will be brief, since there is nothing to write besides it. Then I want to make this idea public — and the author sits down to write theses, which he then sends to the conference. In order to make the idea understandable to the reader, it is necessary to argue it, introduce the reader to the problem, state other aspects of the work. The initial description of all these aspects is as short as the description of the idea itself. All text fits on 1-2 pages – theses are ready.
Further material in this manual focuses on this difficult case.
There are three main types of theses:
To the formulation of the problem;
New method of work.
Each type imposes rather strict requirements on the structure of work.
What do these options suggest?
Abstracts of the report, article or other bulk (usually text) material – a set of individual provisions, logically related to each other. In this case, it is often assumed that their proof takes place in the text of the main (volumetric) publication.
