 +====== Title of doctorate thesis ======
 +
 +Write here a short overview of the research topic.
 +
 +===== Problem =====
 +
 +Describe what is actually the problem that you are planning to solve with your research. Network node gets congested too easily and you want to find way to avoid this, Spam is filling mailboxes and you want to find a new way to protect users about that...
 +
 +===== Related work =====
 +
 +Browse through major scientific databases like ([[http://​ieeexplore.ieee.org/​Xplore/​guesthome.jsp|IEEE explore]], [[http://​portal.isiknowledge.com/​|ISI web of knowledge]],​ [[http://​citeseer.ist.psu.edu/​|citeseer]] and [[http://​scholar.google.com|google scholar]] to find out what others have been done on the area.
 +
 +List the main publications on your wiki. Read these papers and write down some notes about the main points and flaws of the paper. You can use [[http://​wiki.splitbrain.org/​wiki:​dokuwiki|dokuwiki]] and [[http://​stat.genopole.cnrs.fr/​~cambroise/​doku.php?​id=softwares:​dokuwikibibtexplugin|bibtex]] plugin for this. For example:
 +
 +@misc{ is-thesis,
 +
 +<​code>​
 +author = {Mort, Pam},
 +title = {Thesis Proposals: A Brief Guide},
 +url = {"​citeseer.ist.psu.edu/​678307.html"​}
 +</​code>​
 +
 +}
 +
 +Mort's paper gives a very good suggestion about the structure of thesis, describe the ethical issues that should be taken into account, helps to select research methodology and gives some nice additional references. ​ @misc{ joopa,
 +
 +<​code>​
 +author = {Kämäräinen,​ Joni},
 +title = {Yksittäisen tutkijan laatukäsikirja},​
 +url = {"​www2.lut.fi/​~jkamarai/​ltytutklaatu/​downloads/​yksittainentutkija_v_1_0_1.pdf"​}
 +</​code>​
 +
 +}
 +
 +Kämäräinen has provided a good document about writing project plan and conduction research. Especially chapters 2 and 3.1-3.3 are good when making research plan. Unfortunately the document is in Finnish.
 +
 +----
 +
 +When the related work gets bigger you might want to add separate pages for these, based on the topic i.e. having separate pages for standards, wireless technologies and security articles.
 +
 +The system supports also mathplugin, so you can present formulas in latex syntax between math tags
 +
 +<​code>​
 +\sqrt{1-e^2}
 +</​code>​
