Background In my thesis I have to write without 1st person. On the other hand I sometimes have to explain how I have chosen some parameters or how I have realized some implementation etc. (which in a paper I would write in 1st person of course).
My solution is very often to write "in this work" or passive voice or whatsoever. It also stands to reason to use the word "here" more often. However, in the most cases it sounds awkward and I am unsure where to position it.
Questions At which position of the sentence I should position the word "here"? Which of the following versions should be preferred:
Version 1: A has to be transformed to B, which here is done by a rotation R. Version 2: A has to be transformed to B, which is done by a rotation R here.
Or should I 100%ly avoid the word "here" in scientific context?
My impression Version 2 sounds more natural to me. On the other hand the "here" feels so like a little bit "too much". This becomes even worse for longer sentences. In version 1 "here" better fits into the sentence and puts the emphasis where I like it. Unfortunately, it sounds grammatically awkward to me.
