Description

Although postgraduate students and researchers are generally able to design their programme of research and collect data, most find it difficult to transform their date into a thesis. Writing your thesis is designed to help students and researchers with the process, preparation, writing and examination of their theses.

In this immensely practical book, Paul Oliver covers all essential elements of writing a thesis. This includes:

The purpose of the thesis and what it should achieve

Strategies for organizing your work as you write your thesis

How to incorporate a theoretical perspective

Sound techniques of academic writing

How to benefit from your supervisor’s experience

What to do about publishing preliminary findings

Tips on preparing for the oral examination

This lucid and reader-friendly volume is essential reading for all M Phil and PhD students and researchers.
