Shortest thesis ever?
I’ve just stuck together the four data chapters of my PhD thesis, those
being the ones where I’ve done something new rather than talked about
stuff or rehashed my existing data (I’m getting to that bit, don’t worry). Altogether those four chapters are 76 pages and 16 000 words. I’m looking at 100-odd pages
for the finished article, after three and a half years. Brevity is good, right?
