Title of the report

Close attention should be paid to the title of the thesis, as it should be both interesting and informative. A compact and illustrative title does not contain any extra words or broad and complicated structures. The title can consist of two parts: the main title acts as the title actually used, and the subtitle delineates it. Even if the study was not exhaustive, the title should not be vague.
