For the first time ever, I’m writing an academic paper while worrying it will be too long, as opposed to being too short. The difference with this paper is that it’s on something I’m passionate about. I’m having fun writing this one - I’m getting paid to do something that doesn’t feel like work. It really makes me think about what job I want to get after college. I understand it’s possible to work without feeling like you’re working, and that’s something I really want.

    Lovely to hear that. What's the paper about if I may ask?

    @synemeup just talking about the design of the system I developed. It’s focused on web crawlers, adding structure to web data related to cyber security, how I post process data, and how I made it modular

    @spacehash cool..I’ve written a few application notes and sincerely they are my most detailed papers..my PhD years are among the best I’ve had..years just focusing on one thing, reading, learning..no real world. Blimey, I can remember the smell of the lab so clearly..

    As an academic reviewer (a long, long time ago) I've never found length to be an issue as compared to the actual content deviating wildly from the thesis somewhere down the line (if you truly wish to expound on those tangents, I recommend to have them as appendices).

    I'd also place more emphasis on proper citation and bibliography/references. I'm used to MLA but do go with what your sponsor recommends for their publications.

    Anyways, glad to see someone enjoying their work :) Good luck!

    It is possible indeed but the chance of getting that is almost equivalent to zero.

    Thanks for the helpful advice. I have always had difficulty writing essays at university. Other tasks were also difficult. Therefore, I decided to use additional resources to write a literature review online https://literaturereviewwritingservice.com/... in a short time. Thanks to the experts, I coped up with some of the tasks and I had free time.
