First, you need to come up with a topic for your thesis or dissertation. Many people access the database ProQuest Dissertations & Theses (PQDT) , to find a topic that hasn’t been written about.

If you don’t want to pay for that service, you will have to do your own research to find a relevant topic. Use a spreadsheet to keep track of topics, publications, websites and other sources used in your research.

After you come up with a topic for your paper, you have to start your research.

During the research and writing phase, a PDF to Excel converter will be an invaluable tool. You’ve already paid thousands of dollars for your education and probably owe money in student loans. Now is not the time to worry about that. It’s worth the investment to purchase a product that will save you hours of work. Some people spend years working on their dissertation. By using innovative software such as a PDF to Excel converter, you’ll cut down wasted time spent on trying to figure out how to get that information into the format that you want.

Excel is a potent tool for making a schedule for your work, keeping track of sources for research purposes, as well as references, citations, and bibliography.

 

Depending on the type of paper you are writing, you may need to add tables, graphs, charts or other graphics. If you find the source for this research, moving it from the original to your own paper can be difficult. That’s where you can take full advantage of the PDF to Excel converter by unlocking PDF files and converting those charts or tables to Excel, or to a Word document.

You are probably going to be spending a lot of time at the university library photocopying reference material. You can scan that information and import it to your documents using the converter.

Every university has their own rules regarding formatting. Some people write their dissertations in LaTex, but most people prefer what they know, and that is Microsoft Word. If you write in LaTex, there are converters that will convert that document into Word, which is how many universities prefer the final form. They usually want the document in a PDF file.

Why waste time with little technological nightmares when you should be using your brilliant mind to defend your thesis? By using software to take care of these nagging issues, you can focus on the important one – your post-graduate degree.
