What comes to your mind when you say work formatting? For example, if you are setting the line spacing or font size, you can boast. Don’t worry if you have nothing to do with this phrase. We will now focus on formatting work – and then everyone will be clear about what it is and what it’s good for.
Formatting makes your work easier
Proper formatting is literally crucial. However, many students underestimate its importance. First and foremost, your work will get a uniform form. By formatting you also automatically set up a number of processes to save hours of work.
What you can format:
- page numbering,
- heading numbering
- line spacing and font size
- creating content
- generate a list of literary sources
- creating an index
- using solid gaps
- link the title with the appropriate text.
Format at the right time
Format your bachelor’s or master’s thesis continuously. Some actions are being addressed at the beginning, others need to be focused as soon as the work is done. For example, work from scratch to create a list of used literature or indexes – collect literary sources in one of the citation programs, tag keywords in the text. On the contrary, create the final form of your work logically at the end – line spacing, font size, block alignment, etc.
If you have underestimated the formatting of your work from the beginning, don’t worry. Everything is still catching up.
Don’t forget the school’s methodological instructions
Each school has some guidance or binding rules that you have to follow in your work. In some respects, they give the students a fairly accurate idea: often the line spacing must be 1.5, then the font size 12; and you should also follow the appropriate font. The guidelines vary from school to school. Differences can also arise with time or across different disciplines. Therefore, first look for the current methodological guidelines for your industry and see how the work should look.
The most common formatting errors
Students often forget that bachelor’s or diploma theses are numbered from the beginning. The pages that precede the introduction are counted in the overall order. The introduction is therefore the first numbered page, but often bears the designation number 5 or 6. We have even prepared a detailed article for you on the page numbering on our blog.
Errors in this area are not a malformation problem, but rather no formatting. Students often think that it will make their work easier. But the opposite is true. Handwriting documents and creating lists or content and other parts of the work are very challenging and lengthy activities.
