If written properly, your thesis can act as a “roadmap” for your paper, where each main idea presented in your thesis essentially becomes the topic of your body paragraph. To see this in action, use the suggested outline below.
- a rhetorical question
- a quotation
- a definition
- an interesting fact
- a question that will be answered in your paper
- some background information on your topic
Fair Use rules allow you to quote images, works of art, photographs and short video and audio fragments and reuse these in your paper or thesis, as long as the source is properly indicated. Furthermore, the quote should be functional and can not only be used merely to liven up or embellish your work. For example, for using an image on the cover of your thesis, you will need permission from the copyright owner.
When using images of others in your own work, you should pay attention to copyright.
I hope you’re having a wonderful summer!
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! Including color in your thesis is permitted and may be both appropriate and desirable for charts, diagrams, and pictures. However, because of color management of PDFs from screen to print, particularly vibrant colors may look different in print so please take this into consideration. All bound copies of theses and dissertations are printed in color at no extra cost including the library copy. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or concerns.
