Methods to help everyone understand more about academic works. thing. 1. What is the difference between a graduate thesis and a phone database journal paper? Answer: The English of the graduation thesis of master students is thesis, and the graduation thesis of doctoral students is dissertation; the English of the journal article is generally called paper. Graduation thesis is usually the most important condition for graduate students and doctoral students. Thesis and dissertation will be completed with the assistance of the supervisor, and will be reviewed by a committee
composed of three to six experts and scholars in related fields. According to the different regulations of each unit, most of the members of the committee are from other professors in the department, or professors from other domestic units (or experts at the same level). In some countries, the regulations are very strict, and even professors from foreign institutions are required to serve as external committee members to assist in the review to determine the quality of the paper. But so far I have not seen similar regulations in Taiwan. In most cases, journal articles are much more rigorously reviewed than dissertations. Usually, after the manuscript of a
journal paper is submitted to the journal, the editor of the journal will find several international scholars in the same field to assist in reviewing the manuscript. Usually, the reviewer cannot be a person from the same institution as the author. Usually, the review of academic journals takes at least two to four months. For journals with high academic influence such as "Nature" and "Science", it is often a one-year review period. From the time of submission to the publication of a manual, the content of the article often has to be changed many times, and even more than half of the original version has been changed.
