7 essential tips for dissertation of a high standard

After coming up with an outline of your dissertation and you have already researched for the paper, the next thing that you need to do is to start writing. It is not necessarily to start with the introduction. In fact some experts suggest that introductions are best written as the last part of the paper when you already have an idea of the direction that the argument has gotten. Here are some dissertation tips and tricks that you will find useful.

  • Get ideas from previous works
    During the research, you will need to go through a wide range of scholarly articles. A good idea would be to find a recommended academic text that you will find enjoyable and easy to read.
  • Consider structures of other papers
    Look at the structure before figuring out how they have presented their argument. Choose good examples of punctuations and vocabulary. Look for the way the author has used his techniques to convince the reader of the argument they are trying to advance and find out if it is possible to advance that in your writing.
  • Avoid repetitions
    Check for words and phrases that are already implied or stated elsewhere in a sentence and ensure that you have cut these out.
  • Structuring sentences
    When writing the essay, one thing that you need to distinguish is that the key points from other ideas that are less important. Ensure that you have given full weight to the key points by having each of them in their own sentences. You can add your elaborations and other details in your subject sentence.
  • Definition & terminology
    You need to ensure that you have defined your work by either using previously published references or by using an unambiguous definition that comes before the used term. Ensure that you use each of your term in only one way in your dissertation.
  • Focus on the result
    A good idea is to focus on the results you got rather than the circumstances under which you got those results. For instance, you don’t need to tell the reader that your paper is as a result of spending many hours in the lab.
  • Avoid self assessment
    Do not praise or even criticize yourself.
