A Complete Guide For Creating A Great Doctoral Dissertation

Begin with the correct approach:

Your dissertation- sometimes also referred to as a thesis- is a document that you are writing to demonstrate your aptitude and expertise in a particular subject. To start with, you will need to choose a topic that you are:

  • Well-versed in
  • Applies to your field of study
  • Is something that is important to you

If you have a passion for your subject, it will show through your writing, and you will be much more likely to create a compelling essay. You can also draw inspiration from other papers that you have found persuasive. If you found the writing style stimulating, you can be sure that others have as well.

Research and fact-checking:

If you can decide on a topic early on in the term, this will be to your advantage. It can be difficult, but the sooner you pick a topic, the earlier you can begin research on it. Research is important, as you cannot just put an idea out there without any backing to support it. Read other writings on the subject. Check and recheck the facts you will refer to in your essay. Do your homework. A dissertation written with proper research having been conducted throughout the term will be a much more successful one.

Using the right terms and phrases:

In your essay it is important to sound confident and use the proper “voice” that does not subtract from the subject and gets your point across with precision.

  • Avoid jokes. Your dissertation is not a trivial subject
  • Do not speculate. Stick to facts
  • Do not use vague phrases, times or numbers
  • Do not sound uncertain. If you aren’t certain, you cannot persuade anyone else either
  • Use strong wording, instead of flowery descriptions and unnecessary adverbs and adjectives

Use proper grammar & punctuation:

Lack of proper grammar and punctuation in your thesis indicates poor study habits and lack of professionalism. It can also serve to make the point seem unclear and vague. Proper sentence structure is imperative for getting your point across successfully. Do your homework and brush up on your skills. If written English is not your strong point, you can always ask a freelance writer to help you out, as they will have that skill set.

Do not write in abstract terminology:

Instead of writing about a vague concept, make sure you show exactly how the idea can be, or has already been implemented. There are a lot of articles available on the internet, including freelance articles that will contain plenty of information for you to be able to base the execution of your idea.

In closing, writing your thesis can be exhausting and difficult; but doing it correctly from the start will result in the kind of success you are looking for and will turn out to be the better option in the long run. If you follow these tips, there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to create a great thesis-- persuasively written-- that will get you exactly what you want out of it.
