A List Of Basic Rules For Composing A Strong Dissertation
The dissertation is a very important piece of academic achievement which can be a burdensome and long process. But in the end, being able to follow these basic rules for composing a strong dissertation are sure to give you the final graduation you need.
When you are writing a paper, it is important to incorporate the following tips:
- First of all, miscellaneous observations will not suffice in writing an accomplished essay. Anyone can put together random observations on a topic, but your essay needs to have a core argument. It needs to answer a prompt or question. You need to try and prove something by developing a central thesis. This thesis should be developed with supporting evidence and reasoning, particularly with citations and examples from other sources. Gathering this type of evidence often includes reading multiple sources with your provisional thesis in mind. If you do not have your provisional thesis in mind and you start reading, you will find later that a lot of your time spent reading was spent on sources that are not particularly relevant. And when this happens, students tend to do one of two things.
- Either they spend double the amount of time trying to locate more appropriate and better related sources; or
- They try to make the sources they already reviewed fit into their argument, even though they know it doesn’t. This results in a poorly put together paper where it is obvious to the teacher that you are trying too hard to put a round peg in a square hole.
Tip: Double check that you answered the right question throughout the writing process. Do not wait until the end of the paper to realize that you answered the opposite or entirely wrong question.
