How to Avoid PhD Trauma: Top 7 Tips for Writing your PhD Thesis

text size A A A

Following are 7 simple stress-free PhD tips… no more countless hours of unnecessary trauma and endless sleepless nights.

FIRST, decide on your PhD destination. What is your final deadline? For example, if your PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing project has to be written within a 6 month period, simply plan to complete your thesis within a 4.5 month period. This means that you will have a 6 weeks buffer to relax and prepare for your PhD viva; this strategy will instantly reduce your stress levels during your PhD journey!

SECOND, open a separate ‘Word’ document and print 3 copies. Keep one copy by your bed, one copy in your car and another copy in your carrier bag. This is your work-in-progress log. So every time an idea comes to mind, every time you hear or see something connected with your Dissertation & Thesis Writing project, simply write it down. Once a week, combine all the notes/observations/ideas into your ‘Master’ log; ideally it should be in a separate file on your PC. Make sure to date all entries on a weekly basis. Later, you can either include these entries into your PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing project or discard them, at which point you can strikethrough (abc) each entry. You will be amazed how many ideas or thoughts which appear from nowhere may prove later to be invaluable! Just one of these entries can transform your PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing project into an academic work of art! After years of helping PhD students, the highly rated Proofreading & Editing UK service claims that based on PhD students’ feedback this simple second tip has proved to be a critical component to completing a PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing project.

THIRD, write a draft of the Table of Contents and then enter each proposed chapter heading into the main body of your PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing paper. It is not necessary to complete Chapter 1 Introduction before writing Chapter 2 Literature Review. As you begin to source existing peer reviewed researched literature you can create content in both chapters as and when you discover relevant data which addresses your topic. It is important at this stage, not to attempt to edit or format the content but rather to gather relevant data and information. Remember to include the referenced source details at the back of your PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing paper and provide the correct citation complete with the page number each time you add content into the main body of your PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing paper; this so that later you can refer back to the source as your thesis takes shape.

FOUR, spend some serious time on your research problem or problem statement (Chapter 1); this is a central part of your PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing paper as you will need to relate all your data to the research problem. Ensure that this research problem has the potential to plug a gap in research… in other words you will need to ensure that the problem is specific and detailed enough to be unique and therefore useful to the body of research. In addition, consider why you have selected this problem and create your central research aim; what you hope to achieve and discuss later on in your Conclusion and Recommendations. Then try and break down this central aim into ‘mini’ objectives and list them. Finally, ask yourself what will be needed to address the research problem, aim and objectives and create your research questions. Typically, these questions begin with ‘how’ or ‘what’.

FIVE, as you begin to examine data extracted from your sources, don’t forget to check out the methodology and methods used by each of the researchers as they gathered and processed the data. Google each of the methodologies and methods used and get an idea of what role/s each of these research tools can be expected to perform within a PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing project.

SIX, as you begin to create the Literature Review make sure that your research problem, aim and objectives, and also the research questions are considered and addressed. Linking back to these essential research components is even more essential in order to construct the Analysis and Findings; in other words, all the analyses and findings should seamlessly connect the earlier chapters and provide a central theme or argument in your Analysis and Findings chapter.

SEVEN, you cannot believe how often the Proofreading & Editing UK service discovers simple basic errors even after PhD students have spent months conducting extensive PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing tasks. Why not simply ask the highly skilled and experienced Proofreading & Editing UK service to go quickly through your entire PhD thesis and take care of this important aspect of PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing.

This means that you can use the many years of experience found in UK qualified PhD Dissertation & Thesis Writing experts to transform your PhD journey from ongoing trauma and nightmares into a pleasant and enjoyable experience.
