Kath, University of Huddersfield '[Feather] speaks to you in a conversational manner ¿ as though it were over a cup of tea ¿ making you truly understand what academics are expecting from your thesis.'

This book describes meaning, stages and methods of writing a successful research project proposal and a thesis from the first draft proposal to the final version of the thesis. As a manual, this book follows a simple approach that beginners can use without complications and many terminologies and technical terms have been translated into Arabic. The book explains the structure of a thesis and proposal including title, abstract, introduction, literature review, materials and methods, results, discussion, biography and appendix (if there is any). These parts of the thesis are often mixed up without emphasizing the purpose of each part and often without limiting oneself to the specific chapter.

This is a concise research guide for graduate students, especially those undertaking Master and Postgraduate Diploma, on how to write their proposals and finally thesis and dissertations. It gives students a short but useful information on what constitutes a research proposal, the difference between a thesis and a proposal and how to disseminate their research findings. Some students are always in a dilemma on what to include in a manuscript, and they find themselves with pertinent choices. Sometimes, students in natural and applied sciences such as engineering may be required to use a model while undertaking their research. The first question often is the understanding what entails a modelling study. Secondly, how different is it from conventional research. This guide, therefore, provides an overview of the important considerations in scientific research involving one or more models.

This book is for graduate students--and others--who want to become more productive writers. It's especially written for those who want to: * increase their motivation, focus, and persistence to move a project to completion * overcome procrastination and perfectionistic tendencies * reduce (or write in spite of) their anxiety and fear of writing * manage their time, work, energy (and advisor) for greater productivity The process or craft of sustained writing is not a matter that's taught to undergraduate or graduate students as part of their studies, leaving most at sea about how to start a practice that is central to a career in academe and vital in many other professional occupations. This book grew out of conversations Jan Allen has held with her graduate students for over 30 years and reflects the fruit of the writing workshops and boot camps she has conducted at three universities, her own and numerous colleagues' experiences with writing and advising, as well as the feedback she receives from her popular Productive Writer listserv. While Jan Allen recognizes that writing is not an innate talent for most of us, she demonstrates that it is a process based on skills which we can identify, learn, practice and refine. She focuses both on the process and habits of writing as well as on helping you uncover what kind of writer are you, and reflect on your challenges and successes. With a light touch and an engaging sense of humor, she proposes strategies to overcome procrastination and distractions, and build a writing practice to enable you to become a more productive and prolific writer. Jan Allen proposes that you read one of her succinct chapters - each devoted to a specific strategy or writing challenge - each day, or once a week. When you find one that increases your concentration, motivation or endurance, make it a habit. Try it for two weeks, charting the resulting increased productivity. It will become part of your repertoire of writing and productivity tools to which you can progressively add.

The textual features of the proposals as well as the processes of producing them were influenced by the social/disciplinary contexts in which the students were situated and the personal states of the students. The processes of writing the proposal varied more among each individual student rather than between the NNS and NS speakers even though some NNS students reported that they spent more time on editing their proposals and they faced big challenges in the English language and academic writing conventions. I found, in analyzing the proposals, that differences in the students' written texts were less related to their linguistic or cultural backgrounds but more to the ideology and epistemological and methodological norms and conventions of their disciplines or programs of study. Through the lenses of 6 doctoral students of education, their dissertation proposals, and their mentors, this study describes the context, processes, and products of the students' proposal writing. It also analyzes fundamental influences on graduate students' proposal writing and areas of individual differences (besides linguistic backgrounds) among the students' writing which affected the textual features of the students' proposals and their processes of producing the proposals. Data were collected over a period of 10 months in 2 graduate programs in education in a large Canadian university from 4 nonnative-English-speaking (NNS) and 2 native-English-speaking (NS) doctoral students of education and from 5 professors who were nominated by the students and deemed most familiar with these students' thesis proposal writing. The data consist of interviews, a questionnaire completed by each student, 6 dissertation proposals, and other written documents produced by the students and their professors. The study has several implications for theory, pedagogy, and future research. The construct of NNS versus NS was problematic in practice. Both NNS and NS graduate students need ongoing support from their professors and writing instructors or services while they engage in disciplinary writing. Some NNS students may need more help with grammar, vocabulary, and styles of academic genres than their NS counterparts do. Immersion/participation in disciplinary discourse communities and explicit instructions on discipline-specific writing norms/conventions and the English language itself are of equal importance to success of the students' academic enculturation.
