How to distinguish a trustworthy PhD dissertation template

If you are reading this, it may be too late. Unless you’re a “Phoenix” or enrolled at some other aptly named for-profit place of learning, there is NO reason why you are unable to recognize and create a solid dissertation template for your PhD. With that in mind, let’s take a look at where you are (hopefully) starting.

Properly accredited universities, private or public, will offer all sorts of resources with the valid and necessary information. Take advantage of any and all of these.

Consider your sources

  • A quick scan online will give you plenty of proper examples for download using Word, OS, or PDF.
  • If you prefer to be even more hands-on, the grad school office for your particular field of study is another convenient option to help avoid confusion.

Templates of any kind-not just for dissertations-are used to create an organized outline before you begin writing in order to prevent confusion for the writer as well as the reader. But what happens if you cannot understand your template? Fear is a HUGE factor when it comes to something as important as writing your dissertation. It isn’t uncommon to procrastinate out of fear, either. Don’t allow yourself to fall victim to this. In this case, ignorance is not bliss. Make sure you understand what you are up against so fear of the unknown doesn’t paralyze or penalize you. This is an unforced error!

Know your enemy

  • When formatting a dissertation thesis, make sure you know what is giving you cause for concern.
  • Given the way templates are created nowadays, recognize whether your problem lies in the formatting or the dissertation itself.
  • Being able to differentiate between an issue arising from the software is far different from a formatting complication created by the concentration of your thesis.
  • This is so important. You can’t solve a problem or complete a task unless you know what the problem is and how it needs to be solved.

You cannot be over prepared  for taking on a challenge like a PhD thesis. Enough said.

Familiarize yourself with everything!

  • If you don’t know enough about your thesis already, I can’t help you.
  • If you do, this will allow you to not only help you understand how the template software works and the inner-workings and quirks of the template can be of assistance or be a nuisance. This is essentially troubleshooting.
