    Abstract

    Theses, or dissertations, are major written works that require a special approach to scholarly writing, considering such factors as context, genre, audience and research paradigm. They commonly take the form of research reports, but they may be extensive literature reviews or a collection of the author's published research papers. This (last) type of thesis is becoming increasingly widespread and comprises a cohesive series of papers that is accompanied and framed by an analytical commentary. See Chapter 32 for further information on writing papers.
