7.2. Appendix B: Guidelines for the Dissertation Abstract

The following possible outline has been made available courtesy of Prof. Darr as a means of offering guidance to students who feel the need for a structured, descriptive approach to writing a dissertation abstract.

The first paragraph should include the thesis, stated succinctly in a sentence (or two); the history/present state of the discussion/topic, again stated succinctly (two to four sentences will do); and a brief statement of how the thesis advances the topic.

The second and subsequent paragraphs should usually devote a paragraph or two to each chapter. These sentences should not only describe what each chapter entails but also state how that chapter contributes to the larger argument (thesis).

The final paragraph should summarize what the dissertation has accomplished (defending its thesis and advancing the discussion/topic). If it points forward to an additional implication or two of the study, so much the better.
