Here’s a link to a full-text green open access version of a paper called Preparing and writing an undergraduate dissertation. Philip Burnard and I published this in Nurse Education in Practice in 2001. Our aim was to produce something of practical use to students working on what is, typically, their single biggest piece of written work.
I appreciate that my timing here is very poor. Right now most students will be on, or planning for, their summer holidays. So I’ll draw attention to this paper again once the new academic year has started.
