Posted by in Writing Directions, on February 23, 2017

Composing a scientific dissertation of top-notch quality can be quite the task. For many students, it requires many years of attaining knowledge at university before they are at the level of being able to compose a competent scientific thesis. Along with the extremely technical knowledge required, there is a huge commitment of time that also needs to be put in by the student. As such, the task can look quite daunting to students, however we are there to provide help and guide you on how to write a high quality scientific paper.


The first thing you need to be aware of, when writing your paper, is how to structure and format it. For the formatting, every university has their own requirements that you need to meet. For example, each university has their own guidelines for what font and font size your writing should be in. Therefore, you need to find this out by looking at your own university’s website, and if you cannot locate this information as your supervisor as soon as possible.

The following structure that we provide is the most common in a scientific dissertation:

  • Title Page
  • Abstract: This is a very brief section telling the reader about your work. This is normally 150-200 words but again every university has their own limit. It is an extremely condensed version of your paper.
  • Acknowledgements
  • Content page
  • Introduction: The introduction gives the reader background information on the topic you are writing about, as well as your reasoning for undertaking this research. You need to state your thesis statement very clearly in the introduction.
  • Literature Review: This section reviews the most important literature published about your topic. You need to ensure that the literature you introduce in this section is all referenced in the ‘references’ section of your dissertation, which is at the end of your work.
  • Methodology: This section analyzes the methods you will undertake to attain the results. It is an analysis, so just saying what methods you will use is not sufficient.
  • Findings/Discussion: This section analyzes the results you have achieved from your research. Again, as with the methodology, you need detailed analysis of your results.
  • Conclusions: This gives your final thoughts on the topic, and concludes whether or not your thesis statement has been proven.
  • References
  • Appendices

Scientific papers have a rigid and defined structure that you must follow to ensure that you receive the best mark possible. Our article has outlined this structure for you to follow.
