«State of the art» is a chapter of almost every western dissertation and also is mentioned in most English language scientific papers. But how would one translate this phrase into Russian?
Online translation tools get lost and attempt verbatum translations, which completely miss the point (and begin talking about art).
A dissertation for MRes can take a following form:
- Literature review / State of the art (depending on what you are describing more)
- Problem / Aims and objectives (depending on your wording, etc)
- Work done
Something like 'Future research' can be a part of conclusion or be a section before it.
I am using a submitted and accepted dissertation of mine as a reference for this.
