Abstract


Drafting and finalizing a Ph.D. dissertations requires continuous and meticulous involvement at every stage of preparation. The level and expectation from a research scholar is very high and thesis is the finale of a long, usually three to four years of study. Continuous and stable guidance from the supervisor is very vital for completion of a thesis. Though each research scholar may not be well versed in the art of writing, it is quite possible to produce a well-balanced piece of work. This article makes an attempt to give several steps/stages involved in the preparation of a thesis and a systematic approach is presented here. This paper gives simple and practical advice on the problems of getting started, getting organized, dividing the huge task into less formidable pieces and working on those pieces. A list of phrases and terms that, usually a research scholar should avoid is given for ready reference and use.
