about dissertation writing

So universities students are very familiar with the concept of course work and by the time they reach their final semester they have a pretty good idea about how to frame and draft an academic course work. But the game changes as soon as they are introduced to the concept of writing a dissertation. They feel overwhelmed and end up making silly mistakes that lead to lower grades. This often leaves them searching for dissertation help. But this article will provide you with the best possible way of framing a dissertation.

Without any delay, let’s begin….

First Things First

What exactly is a dissertation?

It is an academic document written by students in their final year. It is a lengthy document that gives students the opportunity to showcase their acquired knowledge and opinions. It is mostly research based and has a major chunk of grades depending on it.

Don’t get all panicky just yet.

Perfect Structure for the Win

Writing a dissertation is mostly about research and then writing it in the proper manner. The professors are always very particular about the structure of this academic document. But don’t worry, we have got you. Here is the structure:

  1. The Research Proposal
  2. Title Page
  3. Abstract
  4. Acknowledgement
  5. Contents Page
  6. Introduction
  7. Literature Review
  8. Research Methodology
  9. Findings / Results / Data Analysis
  10. Discussion
  11. Conclusions
  12. References
  13. Appendices

This structure is exactly what you need to keep in mind when you sit down to write your dissertation.

Look Deep if You Want Desired Results

A dissertation is nothing if it is not well researched. Because this document is lengthy, it needs all the attention from students. To make a dissertation, you have to do plenty of research. And the number one difficulty that they face in doing so is finding authentic and genuine resources.

There are two types of sources:

  1. Primary 
  2. Secondary 

You can choose either one or both for your literature review.

Mentioned below is a list of all the places students should look for research material:

  1. Books
  2. Journal articles(peer reviewed)
  3. Statistical data (government websites)
  4. Thesis or dissertation (already published)
  5. Magazines
  6. Newspapers
  7. Encyclopedias

Don’t just add more sources to your literature review to brag; add only what is specific to your research title and aids you in justifying the thesis statement.

Dividing the Words in Each Sections

A dissertation is not only supposed to be thoroughly researched but also has to be written in the right proportions. Each section has to have just enough words to convey its messages. If one section has more words and the other less not only does it affect the structure of the dissertation but will also lack in terms of information. Figuring out the right number of words for each section of a dissertation can leave students feeling like an alchemist. And the ones who aren’t very great at their work.

So, to ease it out, here is how you can divide the different explanatory chapters of your dissertation. Because they are the ones that consume all the words. This division is based on the percentage word limit of your dissertation. So keep dividing your words accordingly.

  • The Research Proposal…………………………………. 8%
  • Introduction ………………………………………………… 10%
  • Acknowledgement…………………………………………. 2%
  • Literature Review………………………………………….. 20%
  • Research Methodology………………………………….. 20%
  • Findings / Results / Data Analysis…………………… 25%
  • Conclusion ……………………………………………………10%

I hope this article was as good as it claimed to be. And all your expectations were fulfilled by it.

So, apply all this new found information and write an awesome and praise worthy dissertation for your professors.

All The Best!
