The ISA has undertaken a new initiative to create an international community of young sociologists who are in the middle of their PhD dissertations or have completed them in the last 5 years. We are asking you to post dissertation abstracts (in English), together with a small amount of information about yourselves.
Step 1: Look at examples of abstracts in dissertations.
Step 2: Review your introduction, conclusion, grant proposals, and other documents that you have written. Most likely you have already written parts of your abstract in these documents.
A dissertation or a thesis is an extended piece of writing – it’s a long one! So, to help your reader find information easily, you must include a Contents page.
Notice that everything leading up to the Introduction does not (necessarily) have to be numbered here (if you do, the numbering would be in Roman numerals).
