If you already have a completed/approved proposal and are ready for quantitative and qualitative data analysis, we would ordinarily proceed as follows:
68. If you prepared a comprehensive proposal you will now be rewarded! Pull out the proposal and begin by checking your proposed research methodology. Change the tense from future tense to past tense and then make any additions or changes so that the methodology section truly reflects what you did. You have now been able to change sections from the proposal to sections for the dissertation. Move on to the Statement of the Problem and the Literature Review in the same manner.

This structure can vary, for instance Chapter 9 can be split into two chapters: 9. Findings, and 5. Discussion. When the research is based on quantitative data, it may be more appropriate to present the numerical results in the ‘Findings’ chapter, followed by a ‘Discussion’ chapter. In qualitative research, it is more to common to present findings and discussion in one chapter.
Statistics Solutions kept me on track, provided great guidance and assistance these last three years, and were critical in helping me finish this degree. I could not have done this work without their help. I strongly recommend Statistics Solutions for anyone who is stuck or having a hard time finishing the last few chapters of their research."
The Reference List provides specific details of a publication you have cited which allow the reader to access that publication. The order is always: name of author(s), year of publication in brackets, title of publication, and further details such as location of the publication. The details differ between journal articles, books, chapters in edited books, reports, and websites, and these differences are explained below.
6. If you're going to ask for a leave of absence from your job while you're working on your research this isn't a good time to do it. Chances are you can do the thinking about it stage without a leave of absence. Assuming that there are six major phases that you will have during your research project, probably the best time to get the most from a leave of absence is during the fourth stage* - the writing stage. This is the time when you really need to be thinking well. To be able to work at your writing in large blocks of time without interruptions is something really important. A leave of absence from your job can allow this to happen. A leave of absence from your job prior to this stage may not be a very efficient use of the valuable time away from your work.
78. Review two or three well organized and presented dissertations. Examine their use of headings, overall style, typeface and organization. Use them as a model for the preparation of your own dissertation. In this way you will have an idea at the beginning of your writing what your finished dissertation will look like. A most helpful perspective!
