One who is getting ready to write his dissertation document feels he is at a loss.
Where should one begin?
Where should one go?
Where should one get his sources?
How will these sources be properly documented in the dissertation?
These are pretty normal thoughts.
These are things to be considered when you are about to start writing your own dissertation material.
So, calm yourself, and don’t panic!
You can’t begin when you are still at a loss.
So know where to begin.
You can begin by reading an example thesis.
Once you have one at hand, keep in mind the following guidelines.
These guidelines should and must not confuse you so you could get an idea about creating a thesis exactly like what you have on hand, just making some changes here and there.
This example thesis on your hand is what it is…just an example.
The purpose of reading an example thesis is to get an idea of what a finished product would look like.
To get an idea on how the overall orderliness and method of this document was done and how it was presented.
A thesis is, and would always be, different from one thesis to another. Beginning with the specific field the thesis would be about, and the rules and instructions would vary already. So do not confuse yourself by trying to create another dissertation of the same material and documentation. The only purpose in reading this example thesis is to get a feel of what the dissertation would look like, the theme and the feel of the language used.
Reading through an example thesis would give you an idea on how a new chapter would be introduced. How about footnotes? How should they be introduced?
These are but a few of common questions that you, as a future dissertation writer, may need to know about.
From the example theses you would be pawing your hands through, you would be able to get a good idea on a dissertation’s appearance, the number of pages it would “normally” have, how diverse would the topic be talked about, and all other necessary questions asked by a first time writer.
Because you can and you are able to get your hands on good dissertation examples and materials, being familiar with where to get a good source is to your advantage.
