Hey!!!

So...after a weekend with no work (it's my rule never to work on weekends as I need to rest) tomorrow it's going to be the last day on my work before Christmas. I'll be off till 2/1 and then I work again on 7/1.
So plenty of time (I think) to work on my thesis.

For tomorrow (as I don't know if I will be able to log in) I want to finish working on the 3rd analysis chapter. It is a big thing to aim for, as I have lots of things to redraft, but I will try!

Good luck everyone!

Hey all!
One more time I decide to participate in an accoutability thread.....I just hope that this time it will keep me accountable!

So, a few days ago I had a meeting with my supervisors and they told me that they want a first full draft by March. This may sound as a lot of time, but working full time in another country on a completely different subject which also needs research and presentations and seminars, having as a first a language different than that of your thesis which is in English and being a part time student do not help at all!

To keep a long story short, I have to put my head down (is there an expression like that?) and keep going!
I have drafts of all my 7 chapters, that need to be put together and form a complete, coherent text.

So for today, I want tocwork and (possibly) finish my introduction.

Thread: Passed!

Hi!
I am form Greece, living and working in Greece, with Greek as native language. I am doing a PhD in the UK.
I've been travelling to the UK every 3 months in order to meet with my supd and discuss my progress. Now I am nearly finished (NEARLY, not there yet).
It has been hard, as I was here alone doing research and working. I am away from everything that happens in the university (seminars, student groups, networks etc). And the most important issue for (which I gues it is not an issue for you) is the language barrier! Writing in a langiage other than your own, is very tricky!!!!
BUT, if you have a tight schedule and you stick to it you can do it. Regular meeting with sups (even via email or skype), and strict deadlines are the things that you should for. And most importantly, willingness to finish!!!

Hi!
I'm in the social sciences too, and I'm writing (or rather trying to write) my lit review chapter.
I wrote 21,000 words and my supd told me to reduce it to 15,000. I managed to make it 17,000 and then I was told to make it 10,000! So, now my thord draft is around 11,000 words and I don't seem to be able to reduce it more!

My other chapters are:
Introduction (around 7,000 words as my research is based in a country other than the UK and I have to "set the scene")
Literature review (around 11,000 words)
Methodology (araound 13,000 words)
Analysis 1 (around 12,000 words)
Analysis 2 (around 12,000 words)
Analysis 3 (around 11,000 words)
Conclusion/Discussion (around 12,000 words)

That gives me total of around 78,000 words with a limit of 80,000

As I did not manage ti find a solution with the essay-writing site (they ignored all my emails) I contacted my university.
I hope that they will be able to help me with this issue.
If it is necessary, I have kept all the earlier drafts of my proposal (as I had sent them to my supervisor) which show the writing process and I guess can be a proof that it is my material and not plagiarised...

Let's see.....

Ok!
Today I was lookig for some theory to back my research, and I came accross an essay writing site that had my research proposal as an essay on subject X!
It was exactly what I had written when I applied at my university.
Of course I had not sent it to them.
I wrote an email to them immediately asking them to remove it, as it was my ownership. They still have not replied.

What if the university sees it? What if it turns up using an anti-plagiarism software?

Any advice on what to do?
