Before I finished my undergraduate thesis, my supervisor had asked me to write a smaller paper with the same content as my thesis and send it to a conference. Now, my thesis ended and my paper is going to be published. Should I cite my undergraduate thesis in my paper? Because undergraduate theses are not easily accepted as a references.

    I'd include the thesis in the bibliography and write in the paper (perhaps in a footnote) something like "This paper is an abridged version of the author's undergraduate thesis [reference here], written under the supervision of [adviser's name here]. Aug 27, 2015 at 7:53

    @AndreasBlass You should turn your comment into an answer. It is exactly what I would have suggested. In addition, in my field (CS) it is not rare to cite undergraduate thesis and I've never heard anyone complaining. Aug 27, 2015 at 9:56
