WEX has developed this document to guide writers in the final stages of organizing the dissertation. We’ve used the traditional 5-chapter framework, and we offering this guide in the spirit of empowering writers at any point of the writing process as well as a guide to know when they’re done.

The guide works best when read and used together with your own program’s dissertation formatting guidelines, so make sure you have access to those resources as well. Remember to always defer to your own program’s guidelines should there are discrepancies between the two resources.
