I had put this in the wrong forum before. But I've completed my PhD and never need to do anymore work on it. But I'm feeling quite bored now that I'm not doing it any more when i come home from work in the evenings. I wanted to give myself a break because i was quite exhausted by it but I think im suffering from PhD withdrawal symptoms. Anyone else have this issue??
I don't think it is a requirement, but I think it is expected, to show your research is original and to show your work is actually publishable. It's also good if you want a career in Academia. I do know of people who have waited until their PhD had finished before they started to submit papers. I depends on the university really!
Hi Marasp when i originally handed in my thesis i was given a "revise and resubmit." I looked upon it as an extension. The examiners didnt follow my progress, they gave me a list of corrections to follow and left me to it. My supervisor did check on my progress from time to time. I submitted after 12 months and both the internal and external looked at them. I then got minor corrections. I will submit within the next two weeks, but it is now subject to internal examniners decision.
One of my minor corrections was to write a conclusion chapter. But my conclusions are rubbish, my thesis was on some mathematical behaviors, all i did was include my results in the conclusion chapter and write what each one meant, as in one or two sentences. My conclusions arent wrong, they are just very basic and easy. I've written about 5 pages in total - which includes a general summary of the thesis as well as scope for furture work. Do you think they would fail me after submitting these conclusions, considering that the request was to write a conclusion chapter, which i have done?

I did my viva and got minor corrections, one of these corrections is a short conclusion chapter (about 5 pages). My issue is, what to include in this chapter. It is a mathematics PhD and I dont know whether I should just include my final result for each of my findings and conclude or talk the reader through how i get to my result (which i think is basically re-writing the thesis again), i dont want to sound repetitive.
I thought of doing this
-results(without putting alot of equations in again)
-a conclusion on each of the results
-scope for future work
Anyone any advice/tips?
