Any school, college or university student who is in the process of obtaining a graduate degree will have to submit a term paper, often referred to as a research paper, thesis or dissertation, to the department and the college, for evaluation. Proofreading is very important. Dissertations play an important role in determining an individual’s completion and final outcome of their degree. They are accounted along with the individual’s final grades. If you are panicking about writing your dissertation, then here are a few tips and study skills to help you go about writing the dissertation and excel in it with flourishing results.
This 8-point simple and univocal approach eases the work of the researcher.
1. The student should pick out an interesting topic that is included in the syllabus.
2. After choosing the topic, this topic should then be analysed for all material available about it in books, articles or on the Internet. For example, if a Psychology student prefers to study ‘Emotional maturity of youth’ then the individual will have to look through information surrounding emotions, maturity, effects of immaturity, and effects of being matured.
3. After analysing and understanding the topic, research sources like the literature review mean studies done previously on the same topic should be identified.
4. Process of organisation as to which of the old researches should be used and which unreliable resources should not be used can be done.
5. After collecting and organising the information, the researcher should read through this information and must start with the editing. Editing will take place in the notations like changing of speech, grammatical mistakes, proper alignment and a continuity check.
6. The researcher should then be able to prepare the outline of the research paper he or she is in the process of completing. By preparing the outline, references can be easily identified.
7. After preparing for the outline of the research paper, the individual should compose or construct the outline and go about it despite the presence of errors, which are natural for anyone.
8. When all of the above said steps are accomplished, the person is ready to edit the rough draft that has errors, and will then be in a position to submit the final draft to the supervisor on time.
By abiding and obliging to the above-mentioned steps, the individual will never have regrets later for having low grades in the final semester.
