Expert writing advice from the editor of the Boston Globe best-seller, The Writer's Home Companion Dissertation writers need strong, practical advice, as well as someone to assure them that their struggles aren't unique. Joan Bolker, midwife to more than one hundred dissertations and co-founder of the Harvard Writing Center, offers invaluable suggestions for the graduate-student writer. Using positive reinforcement, she begins by reminding thesis writers that being able to devote themselves to a project that truly interests them can be a pleasurable adventure. She encourages them to pay close attention to their writing method in order to discover their individual work strategies that promote productivity; to stop feeling fearful that they may disappoint their advisors or family members; and to tailor their theses to their own writing style and personality needs. Using field-tested strategies she assists the student through the entire thesis-writing process, offering advice on choosing a topic and an advisor, on disciplining one's self to work at least fifteen minutes each day; setting short-term deadlines, on revising and defing the thesis, and on life and publication after the dissertation. Bolker makes writing the dissertation an enjoyable challenge.

All new Phd's hope that their dissertations can become books. But a dissertation is written for a committee and a book for the larger world. William Germano's From Dissertation to Book is the essential guide for academic writers who want to revise a doctoral thesis for publication. The author of Getting It Published, Germano draws upon his extensive experience in academic publishing to provide writers with a state-of-the-art view of how to turn a dissertation into a manuscript that publishers will notice. Acknowledging first that not all theses can become books, Germano shows how some dissertations might have a better life as one or more journal articles or as chapters in a newly conceived book. But even dissertations strong enough to be published as books first need to become book manuscripts, and at the heart of From Dissertation to Book is the idea that revising the dissertation is a fundamental process of adapting from one genre of writing to another. Germano offers clear guidance on how to do just this. Writers will find advice on such topics as rethinking the table of contents, taming runaway footnotes, shaping chapter length, and confronting the limitations of jargon, alongside helpful timetables for light or heavy revision. With crisp directives, engaging examples, and a sympathetic eye for the foibles of academic writing, From Dissertation to Book reveals to recent PhD's the process of careful and thoughtful revision—a truly invaluable skill as they grow into their new roles as professional writers.

Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool designed specifically for writers. It’s much more than a word processor, offering a sophisticated environment in which you can manage all aspects of your writing project. You can keep your drafts, research notes, outlines, and synopses all in one place, and then organise your workspace to display exactly what you need. Many novelists have become evangelical about Scrivener, but it’s also eminently suited to academic writers (and indeed anyone who works on large documents). This ebook is for anyone working on a large non-fiction writing project and wants a better way of managing it. I’m using a doctoral thesis as the main example, but my approach is equally applicable to writing an academic book. I focus on the functionality that’s of particular benefit to researchers, so you can get up and running very quickly without having to learn more than you need. No detailed technical knowledge is required, and you are guided through all the stages with clear instructions and screenshots. Please note, this edition covers only the Windows 1.9.7 version of Scrivener. Reviews from Amazon “Very clear and concise guide. Because it is targeted at thesis writers, it was much more helpful to me than the more general guides but I can see that it would also be useful to anyone new to Scrivener.” 5 stars “The manual has not disappointed my expectations, by making complex issues plain and simple, and yet fully exhaustive and rich in informational content. As a result, in short time I was able to put Scrivener, and myself, happily at work.” 5 stars “This ebook was invaluable when I was trying to use Scrivener to write my thesis. I had heard about Scrivener and how wonderful it was but somehow never really got to grips with all its functionality. Then I read Catherine Pope’s guide to writing your thesis with Scrivener. Its focus on writing a thesis was perfect for my needs, the instructions are very clear and the illustrations helped enormously.” 5 stars CONTENTS INTRODUCTION What is Scrivener? Who is behind it?

This book describes meaning, stages and methods of writing a successful research project proposal and a thesis from the first draft proposal to the final version of the thesis. As a manual, this book follows a simple approach that beginners can use without complications and many terminologies and technical terms have been translated into Arabic. The book explains the structure of a thesis and proposal including title, abstract, introduction, literature review, materials and methods, results, discussion, biography and appendix (if there is any). These parts of the thesis are often mixed up without emphasizing the purpose of each part and often without limiting oneself to the specific chapter.

The relationship of supervisor to student has traditionally been seen as one of apprenticeship, in which much learning is tacit, with the expectation that the student will become much like the tutor. The changing demographics of higher education in conjunction with imperatives of greater accountability and support for research students have rendered this scenario both less likely and less desirable and unfortunately many supervisors are challenged by the task of guiding non-native speaker students to completion. This handbook is the ideal guide for all supervisors working with undergraduate and postgraduate non-native speaker students writing a thesis or dissertation in English as it explicitly unpacks thesis writing, using language that is accessible to research supervisors from any discipline.
