Days later, Cliff Pickover highlighted a curious factoid: When Nash wrote his . thesis in 1950, "Non Cooperative Games" at Princeton University, the dissertation (you can read it online here) was brief. It ran only 26 pages. And more particularly, it was light on citations. Nash's diss cited two texts: One was written by John von Neumann & Oskar Morgenstern, whose book, Theory of Games and Economic Behavior (1944), essentially created game theory and revolutionized the field of economics; the other cited text, "Equilibrium Points in n-Person Games," was an article written by Nash himself. And it laid the foundation for his dissertation, another seminal work in the development of game theory, for which Nash won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 1994 .
I participated a Scientific Writing workshop last semester. The tips were similar and then I started to use this suggestions. It really works, do it! Write daily, for example I usually start writing in the morning and for two hours, I shut down my phone, say to my friends and colleagues that I had a meeting with my manuscript and only concentrate writing. Here is a little planning tips from workshop: (imagine that you need to write only a paragraph and use timing on the list)
1-Define your topic (What are your questions) – 3 min.
2-Find informations you need (references, statistical terms etc.) – 3 mins.
In the Philippines, an academic thesis is named by the degree, such as bachelor/undergraduate thesis or masteral thesis. However, in Philippine English , the term doctorate is typically replaced with doctoral (as in the case of "doctoral dissertation"), though in official documentation the former is still used. The terms thesis and dissertation are commonly used interchangeably in everyday language yet it generally understood that a thesis refers to bachelor/undergraduate and master academic work while a dissertation is named for doctorate work.
