Weeks 10 & 11: Unite all parts of the

dissertation

Topic goals: The aim of this week is to learn how to combine all parts of the

research and present it as a unified work. You have to revise your work carefully,

based on the feedback provided by your tutor during the submission week, and

submit the distinct parts as a unique document.

TIPS FOR CHECK THE WHOLE TEXT OF
DISSERTATION BEFORE THE FINAL
SUBMISSION

1. 1. Give yourself enough time

After completing the writing up stage, get a break from it for a few days before

going back to the last check. This will give the opportunity to your brain to ‘forget’

what you’ve been writing and reduces the risk for reading additional information,

rather than what’s actually on the page.

2. 2. Overall structure

Check the overall structure of the text. Is

the structure of the text logical?

Does it have an introduction which briefly includes what your dissertation is

about?

Is there a logical progression through the sections?

3. 3. Formatting

Are the headings and subheadings being consistently formatted – are you

using title case or sentence case?

Does the section numbering keep an order?

Have you used captions for all your figures and tables: Is the numbering logical

and consistent? Was there a correct order being followed? Are they referred in

the text with the correct number? Do the captions accurately reflect the

contents?

3

4. 4. Consistency

Is there consistency in your text in relation to capitals and hyphenation?

Do you use the numbers in the same way for whole your text?

You have to be careful about the use of British English and American English.

You have to choose to use of one them.

Are you using italics correctly?

5. 5. Spelling, punctuation and grammar

It is not enough to use your spelling and grammar checker. It will identify some

obvious errors, but avoid many, many others. For example, homophones – words

that sound the same, but which are spelled differently – for example, bear/bare;

site/sight or stationery/stationary can be used incorrectly in one sentence.

However, the checker is not able to identify this mistake, since the word is

corrected written.

6. 6. Acronyms and abbreviations

If you use acronyms, initialisms or abbreviations in your text, don’t forget to

write the whole name at the first use and the use of the acronym.

For example, you might first refer to the World Health Organization (WHO)

but then use WHO whenever you next refer to it.

It will also be useful to provide a list of acronyms at the front of your thesis

if there are a lot of them. This list will not be part of your word count.

7. Plagiarism

It is very important to type the citation for all the information that you will use from

other sources in your text (in-text citation) and at your reference list.

Plagiarism is also referred to images, tables, charts, graphs and websites and is

very seriously. Don’t risk it.

8. Referencing system

Make sure you have used APA referencing style following APA Unicaf reference

style.

You can find information at the Welcome section of the module.

9. Make several passes

It will be helpful to review in different ways your text. Here’s an example of how

you could make several passes:

1. Cross check headings, sub-headings and page numbers against the table of

contents

2. Check figures and tables are in the right order and numbered and

captioned correctly

3. Check that in-text citations match your reference list

4. Are you references styled according to your institution’s requirements?

5. Have you defined all your acronyms and abbreviations where they first

appear?

6. Lastly, read through to check spelling, grammar and sense

5

10. Get outside help

At this time you need an objective person to read your dissertation.

This person will be more able than you to identify any spelling

mistakes and other errors which you have avoided identifying since

you’ve read it so many times that your brain sees what it expects to

see, and not what it is actually written.

Unite all parts of the

dissertation/Structure of final

dissertation project

When you finish the two main parts of the dissertation (Discussion of the results,

Conclusions and recommendations), you must prepare three documents: The

dissertation project and the power point presentation.

1. First document-Summary (approximately 500 words)

Brief summary of the first part of the dissertation that was submitted in the first

part of the module (UU- EDU731-1). The summary must include a short

description of your work: objectives, a brief statement of the arguments that will

follow and the methods used. The summary will help your tutor understand the

theme of your dissertation so as to grade the rest part of your work.

2. The dissertation project should include:

2.1. Cover page

 Title of Dissertation

 Student’s Name

 Title of Programme of Study

 Year of Submission

 Name of University

2.2. Table of contents

2.3. Discussion of the results (approximately 3.500 words);

This chapter should include the following structure:

 Introduction (aim of study, research questions, methodology, participants)

 Interpret and explain your results

 Answer your research question

 Justify your approach

 Critically evaluate your study

 References

The discussion section therefore needs to review your findings in the context of

the literature and the existing knowledge about the subject. You also need to

demonstrate that you understand the limitations of your research and the

implications of your findings for policy and practice. This section should be

written in the present tense.

In this part you should also mention any gaps or weaknesses in the area of your

research, provide supporting evidence based on the work of other authors and give

new and innovative ideas for improvement. It’s important to state the impact of

your research. You can present your data and discuss the findings with graphs

and/or tables so as to illustrate your points.

2.4. Conclusion and recommendations; (approximately 3.500 words)

This chapter should include the following structure:

 Aim of the study,

 Summary of the findings of the study.

8

 The recommendations and implications of the study based on your research’s

findings.

2.5. Reference list: A detailed bibliography section dealing with texts either

explicitly referred to in the dissertation or substantially informing the research

(though not explicitly cited) by author in alphabetical order as per APA

REQUIREMENTS.

2.6. Appendices (here you can include questionnaires, interviews questions, etc.).

Required Font: Times New Roman, size 12, line spacing 1.5.

9

3. The Power Point Presentation should include 25 slides

Your PP presentation should state your problem clearly. The reader should be able

to understand your thesis statement, your objectives and aims, methods used,

sample and analysis. Also, you have to state the conclusions of your research and

your recommendations and the reference list. Within the reference list you must

include only the entries that mentioned in the previous slides as in-text citations.
