Glossary - Dissertation chapter
is an essay by nature, but a very long essay with a very specific, highly organized structure. There are quantitative and qualitative dissertations, or a mix of the two. Unlike essays that are rather short and specific, dissertations are based on the subject the writer chooses and accepted based on a dissertation outline and proposal sent to a board of instructors.
There’s no set rule as to how many chapters a dissertation will have, but some chapters are a must in the dissertation process. No matter how many chapters the writer chooses to present his research in, the dissertation has to combine an introduction, methodology, research and finding, discussion, as well as a conclusion section.
