What? I must say I had to see this coming. RockerGnome, BikerGnome and HippyGnome could make great names. Also, that review on the Amazon product was golden @Iris -- "I first saw garden gnomes in the early 70's while stationed in Germany. Even the most staid and restrained German garden seemed to have at least one and usually scores of them. Personally I've never had any problems with... more... - Zu from AOD

pretty sure it's spring now, since my office is currently 80 degrees. HVAC issues usually mean the seasons have changed.
Anyone know of "specific guidelines of when to use the third and first person in the [master's] thesis"? Would this be covered in the APA manual?
I have to guess that this kind of thing is highly discipline-specific, right? So, if the thesis is in Psychology (or a closely-related discipline that follows the APA manual), then yes, there probably is specific guidance there. But if it's in a different discipline, I'd say first look to that discipline's style guide (if there is one) and then look to see what patterns are used in the published literature in that field. - Catherine Pellegrino
The APA manual is pretty explicit; Chicago is not. The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers is what most of us use, but there is also the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing with much more explicit style information. But many universities have their own style manuals for theses and dissertations. - kaijsa
I didn't find much that was explicit about first/third person in APA, but I may have missed something. This is in Education, which uses APA. There's no local style guide that I know of, either (which is how they wound up in my inbox) - ~Courtney F
The APA style blog is really useful for these kinds of things, and is online, unlike the manual. This post from 2009 is old, but gets at 1st vs 3rd person and even cites page numbers. http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyl.... The site also has an FAQ that's pretty useful. - kaijsa
Not sure how useful this is, but our theses from Ed tend to be written in the third person, but occasionally have first person. Our institutional manual for graduate students doesn't weigh in on style at that level of granularity. - kaijsa
Thanks! I had found info at the OWL - https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl..., but I didn't think to check the APA itself :) - ~Courtney F
