    Ordinary research skills mark a dissertation 

    In the course of your dissertation completion; right from topic selection, your main objective, primary research, compilation to the final conclusion; every step plays a vital role in making your dissertation an exceptional piece of writing.

    If you go ahead with your research study in an ordinary way using irrelevant sources and methodologies, your dissertation will lack the emphasis and the substance it deserves. In order to create an exceptional dissertation, your research skills must be well-polished so that you can exploit all possibilities in formulating the perfect study. Your research tutor will also play a very important role in ensuring that your dissertation does not succumb to ordinary measures.

    Doing research the right way:

    • Pick the right research sources from books, monographs, text books, online studies, journals, internet sources, etc.
    • Make sure to give due credit to your sources and utilize them to your full advantage
    • Use content that is relevant to your subject and adds value to your dissertation. Choosing unique and interesting content will engage your reader
    • Another thing to keep in mind while researching your subject is one-to-one research. Pick connoisseurs from the industry of your subject and speak to them regarding your study. Their interview will help in taking your dissertation a notch higher.
    • Use academic literature, professional literature, formal publications, data sources and subject matter to compile an all-round research
    • The wider and deeper you go into your subject, the better you use your research skills
    • Take help from your tutors in formulating the right research methodology

    In order to prevent your dissertation from being run-of-the-mill, pay careful attention to details and your research skills.

    Is choosing a broad dissertation topic viable? 

    A dissertation is one of the most crucial steps in your graduation or post-graduation programme. In the course of your dissertation, you will come across a number of hurdles and regrets about your topic selection and the scope to work within your topic. One of the most debatable issues in dissertation topic selection is whether you should take a focused selective topic or go ahead with a broad topic that allows you to extend your research.

    Choose a topic that interests you, raises your curiosity and makes you want to find out more. It is wise to start with a broad topic as you can explore greater possibilities and have a larger canvas to work on. However, in the process of your dissertation, you might realise that you can narrow down the broader topic to a more precise one, thus enabling a better conclusion to your study.

    Discuss your topic with your supervisor so that you are alarmed on time if you are on the wrong track. Don’t choose a topic that is so broad that it makes it impossible for you to study. Go for a realistic scope of topic research so that you can do justice to your topic and break the chains of an average dissertation to create something extra-ordinary.

      No, topic should always be narrowed to ease the study.
