Literature and other educational materials
Can use textbooks,
use library selections, books on the Internet in digital format, use information
relevant for studies/research from different trusted sources on the Internet
and electronic libraries Almost nothing can be turned down if verification due
diligence has been followed.
Ask yourself these questions:
“What is your argument (or arguments)? “What you are trying to prove?”
“What you are trying to dispute?” “What you are trying to defend?” “What are your challenges?”
“What argument have you presented in your work?”
If your answer is negative to all questions, in such case, you do not have a Dissertation. If you are simply re-stating information written by other people without adding your own research and arguments defending your position, this is not a Dissertation. The word “Research” also has no meaning that you must personally perform all research manipulations because you can perform a research based on the examination and evaluation of the work already performed by other researchers and scientists.
Dissertation must be fully comprehensible and correctly presented. The document must be presented in such a way that a regular listener or reader must be able to understand what you are trying to tell (no specialized and/or unknown terminology, no jargon, and no extensive or complicated abbreviations).
You must present clear and relevant discussions associated with your hypothesis, arguments and conclusions.
You must present your own arguments regarding your position.
Logic of your arguments must be obvious and must show scientific intelligence and common sense.
A Dissertation is an independent project of each person; we cannot put any words into your Dissertation and we cannot tell what to write in your Dissertation. At the same time we are examining your work and we cannot accept something that is not showing common characteristics of a diligently prepared Dissertation.
