Praise for this edition: "This book has filled a huge gap in the market!Using wonderful examples, this book will not only help students build up a writer's "toolbox", but will also build confidence and empower thesis writers." Professor William J. Kerr, Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, WestCHEM,University of Strathclyde Praise for the previous edition: "Rowena Murray's down to earth approach both recognises and relieves some of the agony pf writing a PhD. The advice in this book is both practical and motivational; sometimes it's "PhD-saving" too." Dr Christine Sinclair, Lecturer in the Centre for Academic Practice and Learning Enhancement at the University of Strathclyde How to Write a Thesis provides a down-to-earth guide to help students shape their theses. It offers valuable advice as well as practical tips and techniques, incorporating useful boxed summaries and checklists to help students stay on track or regain their way. The book is the culmination of many years of work with postgraduates and academics and covers all aspects of the research, writing and editing involved in the process of successfully completing a thesis. In this book, the author moves beyond the basics of thesis writing, introducing practical writing techniques such as freewriting, generative writing and binge writing. This edition now deals with the range of different doctorates on offer and integrates more examples of thesis writing. Building on the success of the evidence-based approach used in the first edition, there is also new coverage of Masters theses and undergraduate research projects, along with outlines of useful generic structures for social science and humanities projects. How to Write a Thesis is the most grounded guide available to students on the practicalities surrounding thesis writing and should be recommended reading for, and by, all supervisors.
