Arguing on the subject of whether there are differences in approaches to writing research papers in various scientific disciplines can be a simple answer: yes, of course, exist and are significant. Unfortunately, students are not always realize this, because the guidelines are mainly university general. This issue, we touched on some of our previous articles – "How to write an introduction to the diploma?" And "How to Choose a theme diploma? ". Today let's talk about history and about what students should know about the specifics of graduate studies in this discipline. History – the science of ancient and esteemed.
This fact alone demands that the degree of on historical topics were not "so-so", "no pow-boo-boo," but solid and serious. And the amount recommended by the departments of universities to these theses is impressive: as a rule, it is no less 80-100-120 pages. Just try to type material for this volume, but not with any "water" than the often guilty theses in the humanities, and the most that either there is scientific information. Moreover, the sources are required (the chronicles, memoirs, historical works of past eras), which is unlikely in the textbooks will be found – well, so perhaps that some passages. But perhaps the most difficult and time consuming for the student part of the thesis on the history of an introduction – with its an indispensable part of historiography. After it was written all the other pages of text 60-80-100 seem almost "toy" for students of the inflamed brain.
