Thesis writing is usually a busy period when you are a student. While it is a very instructive period it is also linked to stress and uncertainty. Factors that affect how you are performing.
Usually, there is support and help that you are not aware of. Because of this information and advice are important aspects during this day. Having access to the right tools makes your work easier.
Other aspects to consider are inspiration and motivation. Those are important to create the right conditions that help make the thesis writing a pleasurable process.
Last but not least another purpose of the day was to create contact and contribute to a natural dialogue between students and university staff.
All the time invested, all the knowledge acquired will be enclosed within the thesis. The essay is the final evidence that you have achieved your goal and finished a journey. Cool isn’t it?
For those of you who are curious about the presentations from the day see below. If you want to have a dialogue with the participants, you are welcome with your questions.

According to the official DiVA-statistics there were 568,181 full-text documents downloaded from Halmstad University in 2012. The figure is an increase of 41.5% since 2011.
The 2011 result was in turn a nearly 70 percent increase from the previous year. (The first year for which we have complete statistics.)
In other words, the trend continues to be strongly positive. Most of the downloads – 66.3% – can be traced back to search results from Google.
This means that when it comes to full-text downloads, University of Halmstad is in seventh place of the 29 DiVA-affiliated universities in the national statistics (after Linköping, KTH, Uppsala, Linné, Umeå and Stockholm).
We do not have any corresponding international statistics for the day, but – just to take one example – the number of downloads last year from the University College of London – which is among the leading in the statistics in the UK – was nearly 585,000. In relation to this, the result must be seen as quite remarkable, and in general we can conclude that the usage per publication in DiVA system is very high.
