abstract of a dissertation
wikiHow is a “wiki,” similar to Wikipedia, which means that many of our articles are co-written by multiple authors. To create this article, volunteer authors worked to edit and improve it over time.
Community of editors, researchers, and specialists
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.
ISA will make it available on this website so that others will see what you are doing. That way you will be able to discover others studying similar things.
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.
Be very careful when making your final draft that all of the page numbers given in the Contents are correct.
