Writing Your Dissertation With Minimum  Effort

Dissertation requirements are going to be different at different universities and even within the same university for different programs. So, before doing your dissertation research, check what kind of requirements your discipline has. Do it in advance if you don’t want to rewrite the whole paper two days before the deadline. You have to go for specific details about those requirements by  yourself.

The tips we’re going to talk about are quite general and can be applied to any university, discipline, and subject. So, check what you might need to do in order to produce a great dissertation  paper.

  • Choosing a topic. This step defines how well and fast you’re going to be with your writing work. Choosing the right topic is 50% of the whole dissertation. Don’t choose whatever seems to be easy to write about for you. Focus your attention on the topics interesting for you. What exact topic would you like to know more about? Indicate what field you want your dissertation to be around. Know what you want to write long before the date you need to write a dissertation. Ideally, you have to start thinking about your future dissertation topic at least a year before. Pick a topic which can be interesting not only for your teacher but also useful for you later. Which theme can you benefit from after graduation?
  • Start doing your own research early. Don’t do it in a chaotic way. Prepare the list of literature and online sources, which you would like to check for additional materials. Be specific and accurate. The literature you’re going to use for your dissertation should be 100% trustworthy. Don’t forget about scientific journal articles and news articles. If you discover that your topic is too general to study it during a couple of months only, contact your supervisor and ask him/her how you can narrow down the topic or on what parts of the research you should focus more;
  • Make note about everything that may be useful for your dissertation topic. When attending the classes, reading the books, or just doing your average academic assignments, note any useful data, which may be great for your future dissertation project. Every term, concept, or idea can be useful when the dissertation writing process begins;
  • Research methods are important. The more you know about research methods in your discipline, the better. Understand the methodology, which will be the most effective in your case;
  • Try to understand and evaluate your topic from the different points of view. Don’t look at the issue, which you’re writing about, only from your approved or disapproved opinion. Be open-minded and perceive the topic as objectively as possible. Learn to understand the opinions, which are opposed to yours. A dissertation is not about the ability to prove your personal opinion. It is about the ability to research and look at the problem from different angles;
  • Create a database of all printed and digital or visual materials, which you’re going to rely on during the research process. Create a separate folder to keep all files, books, videos, scientific journals, and articles in one place. Believe us, this will make the process of working on your paper much easier and faster;
  • Use visual aids such as charts, graphs, and diagrams. These elements instantly make your paper look professional and well-grounded. Another great advice is to organize a survey to gather current information on your topic, taking into account the opinions of people of different age and gender. Discuss with your teacher what else you can add.

That’s all for organizing your dissertation writing process in a proper way. The approach you choose for this process defines how difficult or easy it will be. A proper organization and planning can help you to transform an exhausting time-consuming research into an interactive and fun activity, which will be interesting not only for professor, but for you as  well.
