The Most Important Elements of Dissertation Writing

Dissertation Writing
Dissertation writing is one of the most important aspects of your education. Although there is no hard and fast standard set for writing and presenting your dissertation in, there is however a generally agreeable format that can be used as a guide line. Following are a few of the most important elements of a dissertation that are widely accepted throughout the academic circle. Let’s go through them one by one:

Title Page: Most obvious and the easier part of your dissertation, the title is, of course derived from what exactly your dissertation is about. Title page also includes your keywords and phrases. It’s important to keep it precise and to the point. Do not try to explain too much with your title, because that wouldn’t look professional enough and might put off the reader right from the start. Just provide enough to define clearly the nature of your work.

Abstract: An abstract should basically be a general summary of your dissertation. Start by giving an introduction and background to your dissertation, include a general hypothesis and list the methods used. Conclude with the results and whatever conclusion your paper presents.

Review of Literature and Research: This part should include a comparison of your current study with any research or study material previously made available in an analytical format. It should spotlight any change that your study and research has arrived at. It should also highlight whatever insight you’ve gained from your dissertation.

Methodology: This part should be written so that if anyone is recreating your study, than he can trace your steps easily and recreate without much hassle. Essentially what it should include is clear description of where, how and most importantly why you got your data and what was the process used to get it. A description of your participants, testing procedures, subjects etc can be a part of methodology as well.

Results: Results part should be a summary of the outcome of what the dissertation writing was meaning to achieve and prove and whether that was achieved or not. Present this data in a format where your data is presented at the start and your findings should conclude it.

Discussion and Interpretation: In this section a summary of the results is interpreted and evaluated by the research conductor, that is you, to arrive to a conclusion as to what exactly you’ve proven with your dissertation and if there is a definitive result than what is it. Also if it isn’t definite then what are the limitations and if anyone were to refer to your work for future studies, exactly what would the need. This part will also include a list of references and appendices.

So there you have it, a brief list of elements you will need to start your dissertation writing. If this feels like a lot of work than you can either come up with a format of your own, or just get some dissertation writing help from professional writers.
