Posted by Destiny on June 10th, 2021

What do you need to consider when writing an essay?

A correctly composed essay is a guarantee of getting a good mark and the possibility of self-realization in the chosen scientific direction, which is especially important for young research scientists.

  • The main emphasis in writing the introduction and conclusion is to focus on the problem under study. In the introduction, the author describes the essence of the issue under consideration, and in the conclusion he summarizes the results of the study.
  • The integrity of the work is achieved through the logical relationship of the main structural units of the text. "Red lines", highlighting paragraphs, the presence of additional subheadings - these are the criteria for a quality essay.
  • Adherence to the chosen presentation style. A scientific essay is accordingly written in a scientific style. Depending on the direction of the discipline / issue under consideration, the use of a journalistic style is allowed.
  • The presence of a thematic epigraph will give the work “special charm” and show that the author is really interested in the chosen research topic. It will complement the main idea, add some completeness to the logic of the narrative, etc.
  • The form of presentation in the style of "question-answer" will help to involve readers in the discussion, to interest them to read the material to the end.

How to write an essay quickly and without modifications?

  • We study theoretical material on the essay topic
  • We are working on the features of the direction in question
  • We think over the relevance of the declared topic
  • We highlight key theses and work out our own author's position in accordance with them
  • We define theoretical concepts, scientific theories, terminology that reveal the main essence of the work
  • We draw up a thesis plan based on the thoughts and ideas that have arisen
  • We write a draft version, work out the structure necessary for the full coverage of the question posed
  • We analyze the content of the written text, supplement / rework errors / inaccuracies
  • We check literacy, consistency of style, the correctness of the compositional construction of a scientific essay
  • We make final changes and draw up the final version

Common spelling mistakes

  • The text of a scientific essay is compiled purely on the basis of your own thoughts, without using literary sources on the topic of the work. The author is recommended to competently alternate personal thoughts with the studied information - this is how the objectivity of the presented data is achieved.
  • A bias towards presenting your own thoughts with a focus on the moments of interest to the author. This approach reduces the quality of the essay, so it is not suitable for publication in the relevant scientific journals.
  • Lack of understanding of the essence of the problem posed, lack of coherent text. A good essay is a detailed, comprehensive study of a topic. Such a document is interesting to readers and valuable as a scientific material.
  • Enumeration of outside thoughts, lack of an author's position. Such an essay is not suitable, because without its own author's opinions it is not unique, but looks like a collection of other people's ideas, developments, etc.
