From studying for a master's degree, doctorate, to being a researcher, only a few people really learn how to write academic theses. During the study period, tutors generally give students professional knowledge and methods for gaining professional knowledge. After engaging in research, most people are busy writing a dissertation and want to publish a dissertation, without considering the method of writing a dissertation.

Therefore, there is a very common phenomenon in the domestic academic community. Writing a dissertation to get a degree and award basically will not consider how to make academic innovations for your dissertation. As a result, it is very difficult to publish it and to publish it.

Whatever the type of academic research or academic innovation, it is only a means of life's purpose and not an end at all. Therefore, there are fewer scholars with a sense of academic responsibility, and there are many scientific names for academic purposes. It is not surprising that most academics are incompetent.

To write a good academic paper, you must master the method of writing academic papers. I write my paper regularly and have been involved in research for more than 20 years, and I have been an editor in academic journals for almost ten years. Being involved in academic research gave me a professional perspective on academic issues, and being the chief editor gave me the opportunity to leave academic research agility and calmly think about the possibility of academic innovation from the perspective of publication. Therefore, I can have the opportunity to establish two different perspectives to talk about how to write good academic papers.

Select topic

The success of the topic is a prerequisite for research success. There is a saying that philosophy and social science are not like natural science. There is no such thing as success or failure. As long as they are willing to do it, they will eventually succeed. This is a mistake. Without a good topic, even tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands or millions of words would be useless nonsense. This cannot be considered a successful study. Successful research must be based on successful topic selection. So what is a successful topic? In short, you must be problem-conscious when choosing a topic.

What is problem awareness?

The first refers to the research objectives. Successful topic selection must reveal the orientation of the research objectives, that is, what goals the research must achieve. The orientation of the research objectives reflects whether the research is valuable and valuable.

Therefore, from the perspective of the topic, we can find out the status of research problems and development trends that might occur. If the topic selection does not reveal the orientation of the research objective, but only states the facts, it means that the research is not worthy of research.

The second refers to the specific scope of research. The topic of success must be specific in scope, not large and comprehensive. In other words, the choice of topics should not be too big, and topics that are too large will prevent in-depth research, such as dragonflies. On the other hand, if the topic is too small, research will be too addicted to trivial matters, which will make research lose its value and taste.

In particular, some details are not representative and cannot truly reflect the development trends of various things, but because the researcher's vision is too small, it is impossible to find the basic laws of developing various things from the details. Especially those who conduct research on historical material often experience such problems.
