A Concise Guide to Writing a Thesis or Dissertation provides clear, succinct, and intentional guidelines about organizing and writing a thesis or dissertation.

Part I provides an overview for writing a thesis or dissertation.

It describes the big picture of planning and formatting a research study, from identifying a topic to focusing on writing quality.

Part II describes the framework and substance of a research study.

It models the pattern generally found in a formal, five-chapter research study.

Each chapter of a thesis or dissertation has a specific purpose, and this book focuses on each in an easy-to-follow structure.

Chapter One reviews the headings and contents expected in the introduction of a study.

Chapter Two provides advice for writing a literature review.

Chapter Three discusses what to include when describing the methodology.

These first three chapters form the proposal section of a study.

Two additional chapters present results (Chapter Four) and provide discussion and conclusions (Chapter Five).

Appendices offer resources for instructors and students, including a rubric for evaluating writing, exercises to strengthen skills in APA format, sample purpose statements, a research planning organizer, and a guide for scholarly writing.

The book is designed overall to be a practical guide and resource for students for their thesis or dissertation process.

Note to readers: Due to publishing limitations, some of the titles within the book do not accurately conform with APA format.

For precise APA format, please see the APA manual (2010, pp. 62-63), or refer to Table 1.1, (p. 8) or Table D.1 (p. 107) in this book.
