Formal requirements of attestation work

Attestation work can be highly elaborated in terms of content, ie it is characterized by relevant expert argumentation of the author, high ability to systematize ideas and formulate own scientific conclusions, adequate quantum of professional domestic and foreign information sources and of course has a practical aim to improve and increase effectiveness of the examined issue. However, the overall assessment and assessment of attestation work also takes great account of compliance with the prescribed formal standards.

Attestation work can be highly elaborated in terms of content, ie it is characterized by relevant expert argumentation of the author, high ability to systematize ideas and formulate own scientific conclusions, adequate quantum of professional domestic and foreign information sources and of course has a practical aim to improve and increase effectiveness of the examined issue. However, the overall assessment and assessment of attestation work also considerably adheres to compliance with the prescribed formal standards (ie writing and editing rules). If they do not respect their work, it significantly weakens the overall value of the cleanup. In some cases, e.g. in particular, when undersizing the number of pages (which means not respecting the minimum extent depending on the level of education attained), the work is not admitted to the defense.

Final version of attestation work, t. j. clean, must be printed by computer black print in 2 copies so that it is legible on white opaque A4 paper (297 x 210 mm). Its compulsory part is also a CD, ie an electronic version identical to the print version of the work, which is most often placed on the inside of the back cover of the print, by sticking it into the paper cover.

The work is written in the state language using one-sided printing, if it is written in a foreign language, its essential part is a resume in the English language, which is usually 10% of the whole work.

The first person of the plural is used in the work, which means that the author expresses himself in the form of an authorial plural. The text part must be stylistically and linguistically handled at an adequate level with no grammatical errors, typos, colloquial or slang. It is equally important that the illustrative material does not predominate over the textual part, and if it is larger, it is recommended to include it in the appendices in order to avoid the impression of artificially increasing the number of pages.

Extent of attestation work

The range is determined by the number of normalized pages, so-called. standard pages, the number of which is useful to rewrite (including the number of characters including spaces). The normal page is thus accepted if it contains approximately 30 normalized lines with 60 strokes per line, which is 1800 characters. The author is obliged to respect the specified range of viewpoints, as the insufficient number of standard pages is a relevant reason for rejection of the thesis and therefore it is essential to emphasize that the introduction, the core and the conclusion are included in the priority. Some internal guidelines also include a list of bibliographic references, ie. all parts of the main part of attestation work. The outside of the cover (binding), cover page, affidavit, acknowledgment (not mandatory), the English and language versions of the abstract, the content and the annexes do not play any role in the scope as they are not counted. As work can be undersized, it can also be oversized. To put it simply, the author will greatly exceed the recommended upper limit for the range, which may give the impression of some fragmentation of the text, but also testify to the inability of the author to select material information. This supports the argument about his inability to handle the chosen issue in a material and transparent way.

Page Setup

Structure of the text part and its numbering

The text part is justified in blocks, while the chapter headings are left-aligned and are usually written from the beginning of a line, each chapter on a new page for clarity.

Main Chapter – Level I of the hierarchy is numbered in Arabic numerals in ascending order, starting with a separate number on the first level 1, followed by a dot. Number 1 is the same for the beginning of all parts in the first chapter. Chapters can logically be divided into several sub-levels, ie. on subchapters – II. hierarchy level and sections – III. hierarchy level. Pri II. and III. level, the numbers are separated from each other by a dot, but the last is never a dot.

Page numbering

It is important not to confuse the numbering (marking) of the parts of the attestation work (i.e. chapters of subchapters, sections) with the numbering of the attestation work. The parties are also numbered as Arabic numerals as part of the work, continuously. It is important to note that the visible page number display starts with the introduction page (some internal guidelines require the beginning of visible numbering from the other side of the introduction) and ends with the last page of the bibliographic reference list. The front cover (binding) is not included in paging. When the title page, the affidavit, or the thanks, English and language abstract, we count the content into paging, but the numbers do not appear on them. Therefore, the first visible, printed page number is usually displayed from the introduction (or the other side of the introduction), which, taking into account the formal parts counted in paging (although the numbers are not printed), is mostly denoted by Arabic number 7. Page numbers are placed in the footer centered either on the center or placed on the outside of the sheet (right). In terms of size, they are identical to the text size (12 pt.) Or are one degree smaller (11 pt.).

Numbering tables, illustrations and attachments

Tables: Due to the researched issue and the methodology used, tables are often found in the work, which have a clear and explicative character, complementing individual theses and explaining relationships. It is important to evaluate the placement of tables and illustrations. Smaller scale tables directly following the problem analysis are best presented in the text of the work, possibly on the page that discusses a phenomenon that the author wants to base on a table. The purpose of such an arrangement is to maintain a logical continuity and a better understanding of the context.

Each spreadsheet must contain:

  • your number (numbered sequentially, as listed)
  • the title we place above the table (mostly from the left)
  • source located at the bottom of the table (“custom processing” may be included)

Illustrations: Charts, diagrams, diagrams, images are collectively referred to as illustrations that, if they are clearly related to a subject and do not touch it marginally, it is desirable to place the tables directly in the text. However, compared to the tables, we put the number and title in the lower part, ie. under the illustration. The original source must be clearly stated for the graphs, tables, pictures … that are not the original scientific output of the author of the work.

Attachments: Graphs, diagrams, pictures and overall illustrative material of a larger scale, which partly touches upon the main issue, or illustrates methods and techniques in a broader context, is more appropriate to be included in the annexes. The annexes are not included in the scope of the work and are listed as follows:

Appendix No. 1 Attachment Title

Then follows the embedded chart, diagram, drawing, map, plan, form eg. questionnaire and so on.

List of bibliographic references

For the purpose of functional orientation in the text part and the clear identification of the resource used, the list of bibliographic sources is usually alphabetically sorted (since the most common method we recommend to use is the name and date method) will be sorted by all the resources used. The final list is thus made up of individual records of used information sources (also quoted and paraphrased), which are written as separate paragraphs without using a breakpoint. Some internal guidelines require the allocation of resources by category, which means that when creating records, the author must include individual links, depending on whether it is a monograph (book), a magazine and an anthology or an electronic resource.
