To Make It More Persuasive And Conclusive Than Ever?
Are you really excited to start your dissertation since you are highly interested in the topic, but just not getting the right words to start?
Are you clueless as there is no good topic that you can think of?
Are you going nuts since you don’t know where, when and how to start a dissertation?
Don’t despair, although its the longest form of writing one can ever think of but you can manage to write the best one, if not, at least you can give it a kick-start.
Have you ever heard that the headline and attention grabbing start is the heart and soul of an article, essay or any form of writing? Similarly, we can say that a great dissertation start will provoke a reader to read it till the end comes.
Your head is the place from where the ideas, words and sentences will come, so, to give yourself a kick-start, it is crucial to make everything clear in your head first. Read the dissertation guidelines; look out for interesting themes andideas for starting a dissertation
. Read 15 to 20 peer reviewed journals or abstracts to broaden the horizon of your creativity, make notes of them to be used later in dissertation writing. Then move on to topic selection.
To be different and unique is what a writer struggles to do every time, but for academic writing, research work is the core thing that cannot take a unique face. So to brainstorm, one must look out for the researches that haven’t been done before or if they are, look out to seek them from a different perspective. That way you topic selection will readily become unique and compelling.
Sit with the supervisor and brainstorm for a topic under his guidance if you are still clueless about how to start a dissertation. He will definitely take you out of it in minutes or so. The focus of your attention in the initial stages shouldn’t be on the dissertation but your initial draft. Make efforts to write a strong initial draft that gets approval anyhow.
Models, paradigms, samples and examples are necessary to build confidence in a dissertation writer so as to convince him that he is doing right. Scholarly articles, peer-reviewed journals, research papers are the best sources to build up knowledge. Free databases won’t help you at all as they lack so much authenticity and credibility that it is better to pay a website to get informational papers out.
Depending on the subject nature, the selection of primary and secondary sources is decided at the initial stages of dissertation writing. Research proposal is the stage of the project where everything is decided and approved so it is good to make sure that you have done the selection carefully.
Lastly, make a strong boundary of your project as per according to the research proposal and stick to it to the very end.
