  1. Your first two chapters should be written to create the reader's interest in your work. 
  2. This is where you introduce readers to your topic with background information and definitions.
  3. Look for frequently cited works by well known authors.
  4. Include statistics and data provided by professional and government organizations.


The last chapters of your dissertation/thesis focus on your actual research which you need to discuss and summarize.

Look for journal articles that support the outcome of your research and your methodology. '

In your conclusion support your recommendations or predictions with journal articles that discuss trends and solutions concerning your research.

Peer reviewed scholarly journal articles have been retracted after being published due to plagiarism, incomplete or false data. Visit the Retraction Watch website for further information and cases.

Double check with your advisor and committee on which reference citing format you should use.

If you start gathering your references with ENDNOTE, Zotero or any other bibliographic management software, you will save time in writing your papers.

References are the actual journal articles you have read and used to write up your paper. You cannot cite the individual references listed in another author's journal article. You only cite what you have actually read in your dissertation/thesis.
