Almost all students are required to write a dissertation or thesis at some point in their academic career, and this can be an overwhelming task - particularly for those who have not written one before.
When writing a dissertation or thesis, it is essential to produce a work that is well-structured and well-presented. This book offers all the practical advice that students will need, giving clear examples throughout.
Part 1 covers content - from the layout order of contents to the compilation of the bibliography and appendices. Part 2 concentrates on presentation and style, focusing on the details of how work should be presented and covering aspects such as writing styles, page numbers, margins and abbreviations.
The first edition of this book contributed to improving countless dissertations and this new edition will continue to do the same - using the practical advice and guidance it offers could mean the difference between success and failure.
