Acknowledgement In Thesis-43
Do you think it should be included only at the end of the examination process? Graduates’ gratitude: The generic structure of dissertation acknowledgements.Is it important for the examiner to know the candidate through the acknowledgement? And if you are an examiner as well- do you discuss this at all in your role as a supervisor- or leave it entirely to your student? If struggles are mentioned, there seems to be more formative and developmental feedback; otherwise, they tend to become less tolerant of mistakes and this may potentially mean becoming more “forensic” in examining the thesis.

Some examiners get irritated when names of top scholars whom the candidate probably met and chatted with at a conference are acknowledged with the hope of influencing the examiners.

Some examiners questioned the role of GOD in a thesis and want scientific evidence to support claims of divine assistance!

That is, it’s not the acknowledgements they are suspicious of but they are influenced by them and have a biased view on the acknowledgments.

Even though many claim not to be influenced by the acknowledgments, there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that they act differently after reading the acknowledgements.

On the academic level, Mohamed taught me fundamentals of conducting scientific research in the database systems area.

Under his supervision, I learned how to define a research problem, find a solution to it, and finally publish the results.

Thus, the final outcome is purely based on the content.

Some, like me, tend to be more formative in the assessment if the acknowledgments show struggles.

It would also be a rare case that one would write a personal struggle in the acknowledgement in a Japanese Ph D thesis.

What we now know is that examiners’ views are biased by the acknowledgments.
