 Overcoming Procrastination: Getting Organized to Complete the Dissertation
The dissertation may serve as a major blow to a graduate student's self esteem; it is not uncommon to feel as if it is an insurmountable task that will never be completed.
The key to completing the dissertation promptly is organization and time management; the dissertation stage is often the first time in which a student must provide his or her own structure towards completing a research task.
The dissertation is unstructured, it is now the student's turn to apply the structure, and structure must be applied in order to complete it.

 hypertet composing processes
The purpose of this dissertation is to question how the act of composing hypertext, the discursive form that allows readers and writers to link to other pieces of text, affects students’ senses of textuality and agency as writers.
This dissertation will assume that hypertext represents a new discursive form born partly out of the need to make associations between and among the growing amounts of information present in the textual world.
This dissertation may shed some light on the ways in which that reassessment can be directed.

 Unpublished? Try your dissertation

 Quickly Completing a Successful Dissertation
Many people correctly point to the tremendous amount of effort required to successfully complete a dissertation as the primary reason why the ABD attrition rate is so high, but they are overlooking another, not readily apparent fact.
Ever since the beginning of his or her scholastic experience, a student's instructor has always assigned the task to be performed, i.e., the topic to report on, the book to read, the lab experiment to perform.
When this "new contribution" requirement is combined with the vast number of other tasks required by a successful dissertation, such as those required for a thorough review of literature, many students have trouble even getting started on their dissertation project.

 UNC Writing Center Handout | Dissertations
The dissertation marks the transition from student to scholar and is stressful as a result.
When you finish your dissertation, you have to change your life pretty dramatically —you may go on the job market, begin work as an independent scholar, develop classes, move out of a community that you have grown to love, and so on.

A PhD dissertation is a lengthy, formal document that argues in defense of a particular thesis.
Each technical term used in a dissertation must be defined either by a reference to a previously published definition (for standard terms with their usual meaning) or by a precise, unambiguous definition that appears before the term is used (for a new term or a standard term used in an unusual way).
In general, every dissertation must define the problem that motivated the research, tell why that problem is important, tell what others have done, describe the new contribution, document the experiments that validate the contribution, and draw conclusions.
