Today, the availability of an academic degree is becoming increasingly popular. And this is obvious, since the degree provides the essential advantages, whether it is a postponement from the army, career advancement or an increase in social status in society. But novice researchers embarking on the scientific work on writing a dissertation, as a rule, have a lot of questions related to the search for information, writing methodology, design and procedure for its public defense.

So, the thesis is a research work, which has a qualifying character, and should be prepared for public defense and a degree.

The preparation of the thesis, the collection of information, and other procedures for the protection of this scientific work are quite complex, multifaceted, and confusing.

According to the Regulation “On the Order of Awarding Academic Degrees,” the dissertation is prepared individually. It should contain a set of new scientific results and provisions put forward for public protection. As a scientific work, it must have internal unity and testify to the personal contribution of its author to science.

New ideas proposed in work should be reasoned and critically evaluated in comparison with the known, previously described plans. In dissertations of practical importance, the information should be provided on the possible use of the scientific results obtained by the author, and in dissertations of theoretical significance, recommendations on the use of scientific findings should be given.

The thesis must meet the established requirements. In the case when the dissertations are presented in the form of a manuscript, their main provisions should be published.

In addition, the thesis should provide scientific information in the complete form, necessarily disclosing the results and the course of research and describing the research methodology in detail. The completeness of scientific knowledge should be reflected in providing the most detailed factual material, including detailed substantiations, hypotheses, great historical excursions, and parallels.

The basis of the content of the thesis should be fundamentally new material, including a description of new facts, phenomena, and patterns, as well as a synthesis of previously known information from other scientific positions or in a completely different aspect.
