4. Title of Diploma Thesis - common mistakes

Dear students,

Our common goal is to easily manage the period of  handing-over of master / bachelor theses in this academic year´s summer term. The Rectorate of Comenius University reminds the students about frequently repeated mistakes in the titles of master / bachelor theses and it warns that in case the title of student´s thesis is not PRECISELY and ACCURATELY identical to his/her assignment in AIS, the student might not be allowed to defend his/her thesis and at the same time he/she might be asked to make a new work.

The thesis is sent for its originality verification, its title is listed in license agreements and unless its title is precisely and accurately identical to the thesis assignment, it is legally a different thesis, even though there may be a minimal difference (e.g. only grammatical correction, etc.).

We ask therefore to focus on the following:

Change of master / bachelor thesis department:

You have commited to write  your master / bachelor thesis at one of the departments of Faculty of Pharmacy (you signed the master / bachelor thesis assignment with this department). In case you have meanwhile agreed to write your final work at another department, it is necessary to report it to the Study Department immediately. This change will be recorded in your index and enrollment sheet in AIS2.

PLEASE CHECK STRAIGHT AWAY IF YOUR MASTER / BACHELOR THESIS DEPARTMENT IS CORRECTLY NAMED IN YOUR ENROLLMENT SHEET IN AIS!!!

Thesis title – BE AWARE OF COMMON MISTAKES!

It is not possible to change the thesis title without having to record this change in AIS. The change is recorded by your supervisor. It is impossible to hand-over your master / bachelor thesis with a different name.

The most common mistakes:

Added / missing punctuation characters, spaces, dashes.

Example:

Assignment: Bis-amino carboxylates of copper -  synthesis and the properties of compounds with potential antiflogistic effect

Student´s thesis title: Bis - amino carboxylates of copper-synthesis and the properties of compounds with potential antiflogistic effect.

Mistake: In the word bis-amino carboxylates there is no space between words and a dash, in the words copper - synthesis  there is a space between words and a dash and there is no dot at the end of the title in the assignment.

Added or missing dots at the end of  the thesis title.

Example:

Assignment: Solubilization of  anti-tumour drug with nonionic surfactants

Student´s thesis title: Solubilization of  anti-tumour drug with nonionic surfactants.

Mistake: The dot at the end of the title!!

Used upper or lower indices – use them exactly as in the assignment!

Example:

Assignment: The affect of KN-93, inhibitor Ca2+/calmodulin of dependent protein kinase II, on expression of selected proteins Ca2+ of homeostasis in hearts of rats exposed to ischemia and reperfusion.

Student´s thesis title: The affect of KN-93, inhibitor Ca2+/calmodulin of dependent protein kinase II, on expression of selected proteins Ca2+ of homeostasis in hearts of rats exposed to ischemia and reperfusion.

Mistake: The transcription of Ca2+ to the upper index of Ca2+

Explanation: AIS cannot enter indices and therefore they have to be presented the same way as they are in the assignment. The student has to state the title identical to the assignment, and so the index must also be presented the way it is presented in the assignment.

Corrected misprints in the thesis title.

Example:

Assignment: Animal models of deperssion.

Student´s thesis title: Animal models of depression.

Mistake: The student did not notify the supervisor about the misprint  and even though he/she handed-over his/her thesis with a correct title, it is not identical to the assignment. In case you have such a mistake in the assignment, it is necessary to notify the supervisor of master / bachelor thesis immediately in order to have the mistake corrected.

Shortened or extended diploma thesis (adding words, etc.).

Example 1:

Assignment: The study of lipophilicity of potential drugs affecting beta-3-receptors.

Student´s thesis title: The study of lipophilicity of potential drugs affecting  β-3-receptors.

Mistake: Replacing the word „beta“ for the symbol „β“.

 

Example 2:

Assignment: The influence of Pycnogenol and metformin on contractility of vessels.

Student´s thesis title: The influence of pycnogenol and metformin on contractility of vessels.

Mistake: Small „p“ in the word „pycnogenol“.

 

If you notice grammatical mistakes in the title or if you are not sure about the accuracy of the title, contact your supervisor in advance so he/she can correct the mistake in the thesis ASSIGNMENT. It is necessary to do so before final confirmation of the thesis in AIS and especially before sending it for the originality verification!! Only the supervisor of master / bachelor thesis can change the thesis title, not the student!
