How to quote dissertation or thesis in your monograph?
In his thesis, Alexandre Abdal presents the concept of how the state supposes some particularities in countries considered as underdeveloped or emerging, acting as an ignition for those who have a late industrialization. (ABDAL, 2015)
In the quotation from the dissertation above, you may note that the author’s name and the date of publication of his thesis had been marked. As you develop your academic work you need to be careful about issues like plagiarism, limiting yourself to paraphrasing the author’s words.
In quotations from a specific section, we use the quotation marks to use the quotation. If it also contains quotation marks, these should be transcribed with single quotes for differentiation, along with the page where the affirmation and the year of publication are found.
Allowing your work to possess some plagiarized passageway may end up with the credibility of your dissertation and also with your credibility as an academic.
