Composing a Dissertation Paper

A dissertation is one of the most challenging and rewarding tasks a student ever accomplishes in college/university. That’s because the dissertation requires a thorough research, planning, and understanding of the topic you’re writing on.

Unlike other essays and assignments, dissertation allows you to choose your own topic. Normally, the university would give you six – eight weeks (sometimes four weeks) to complete the paper, along with some specific guidelines to be followed. But generally speaking, here is how a dissertation is structured:

  • Research Proposal or Introduction
  • Literature Review and Methodologies
  • Results and Discussion/Conclusion

Here is how each section of the structure should be written:

Research Proposal or Introduction

This is one of the most important parts of your dissertation. If you want to impress your professor, you should write an informative introduction/research proposal. In this section, you’ll present how you’re going to explore and define the particular topic you have chosen. It will also contain some information as to why you chose that particular subject, for example, immunobiology and why you think there’s a need to write a paper on this topic. You will also discuss how you have gone through the whole dissertation – similar to giving a tour through your paper.

We recommend you to put this part in the end of your dissertation.

Literature Review and Methodologies

Literature review and methodology are often combined. Writing a literature review is fairly easy. You explain the substantial facts, viewpoints and your understanding on the topic.

In simple words, you’re actually giving an analysis of your dissertation to the reader.

In methodologies section, you’ll explain why you’ve chosen quantitative or qualitative methods, or sometimes both. You will also describe the research methods you have chosen and used in your dissertation.

Results and Discussions/ Conclusion

Here, you will explain the process of the research and experiments you have run, and the results you obtained from your tests. In simple words, you will summarize the whole purpose of writing a dissertation paper on your chosen topic, and what you have obtained from it in the end.

Final Thoughts

That’s it. Following this short guideline will surely improve your understanding of writing a dissertation paper on microbiology. But to make it even more stellar, we recommend you to proofread and edit your content before submitting it to your professor.
