Master´s degree guide for thesis writing

2.4 Reporting

The thesis report is written following the thesis writing guidelines of Centria University of Applied Sciences. The written report should also follow the good scientific practice taking into account the guidelines of the Finnish Advisory Board on Research Integrity (http://www.tenk.fi/htk-ohje/hyva-tieteellinen-kaytanto). Examples of violating the good scientific practices include downplaying the role of other researchers/authors, insufficient reference information when using previous studies as sources as well as negligent and thus misleading reporting of the research results and methods. Moreover, inadequate reporting and archiving of results as well as plagiarism are considered violations of good scientific practice.

Writing the thesis should be started as early as possible. The supervisor and the lecturer of communication will advise in questions concerning the written report. The report is submitted to the supervisor for feedback as well as to the representative of the commissioning party. The students make the required corrections and supplement the thesis according to the feedback.
