When it comes to formatting your paper, you need to know what the main aspects are that you will need to follow. Use websites to get the main aspects of the format in order and then worry about the rest during the editing process.
A main part of your dissertation has to be transitions. Because this is such a long paper, it is easy to get lost. Therefore the transitions are important and link the ideas together.
Presentation of evidence
The first important part of proving your point is presenting the evidence. It is where you give the proof that supports the topic that you are discussing. This can be a direct quote or a paraphrase from a credible source.
Explain the evidence
The second part is to explain the piece of evidence and how it proves the main point. You can’t just assume that the reader will make the connection between the point that you are trying to make and the evidence that you provided.
The third part is the “so what”. This is the section that most people forget about. Tell your audience what it means as well. You need to use these three steps for each piece of evidence.
When you have your paper ready to go, the editing part is vital. You need to be able to fix any of the mistakes and make sure that the paper flows and makes sense.
