Tips For Creating An Excellent Bibliography For A Dissertation

When you are closing in the completion of your dissertation, you could always use a little help. Creating the bibliography of the dissertation is very important. You will have to make sure that you properly cite all of your sources to give credit to the people who wrote the sources. When you are writing a dissertation, you will need to make sure to use resources to support your claims and conduct your research. Therefore, you will likely have quite a few resources. Here are some tips to help you create your bibliography properly.

  1. The sources are presented in alphabetical order
  2. Your sources will need to be in alphabetical order. You will use the first part of the citation to decide what letter to put alphabetically. When you are dealing with multiple sources with the same name, you will need to use the first letter that is different to decide which order to put them in.

  3. You will indent the second line
  4. The second line of the citation should be indented. That makes it easier to distinguish between the sources when they are in a list. It is important to remember that these sources will also be double spaced like the rest of your paper.

  5. Include all sources
  6. You will want to include all of the resources that you used in your paper in the bibliography. You will include another works cited section for the paper and that deals with the resources that were actually cited in the paper. If you used a resource as a reference, but you didn’t actually quote them or use their information specifically, you should still put their information in the bibliography because even the information alone could have swayed your paper. That means that you may have utilized the information indirectly.

  7. Proper citation
  8. There are specific formats for the citing of different resources. Be sure to determine the proper way to cite your source so that you don’t get it wrong. That way you can find out exactly how to do it the right way.

These tips will help you create a successful bibliography for your dissertation. It will be important to make sure that you include all of the sources that you could have used for the paper. It is a very important point to keep in mind. Good Luck.
