Abstract:

Constructing a Good Dissertation is a practical guide to conceptualising, researching, writing and passing an honours, master's or doctoral dissertation. Its goal is straightforward: To demystify the process of completing a good dissertation. It takes a holistic approach, emphasising the skills needed, how to apply them, and the pitfalls to avoid. The logic underlying the dissertation is consistently emphasised: If one understands the why, the how becomes much easier. Many of the principles discussed apply to other academic work, so the book should also be of benefit to postgraduate students in their written assignments.
