Preamble of memory. The preamble to the brief, which briefly describes the purpose of the dissertation and the context of the training, is relatively short. However, it must contain enough helpful resources to allow the reader to know the purpose of the memory. It must be developed in such a way as to arouse the interest of the reader for the continuation of the work. In order to know how to make a preamble of memory, one must refer to the guide of memory. In general, the preamble provides an overview of the orientation of the dissertation, through the formulation of the guiding ideas, the problematic and the announcement of the memory plan. This part introduces the body of the text. The development of the memory plan, which is the second step in the writing of memory, allows concretizing the structuring of its ideas to complete the writing of the dissertation. To create a plan of memory consists of taking again the problematic and the series of questioning which follows. And even if at the beginning it is only the master plan which will be the constitutive parts of the memory, it is possible to refine it as research work progresses.
