英国论文的格式以及组成部分 DISSERTATION(6)

References
References and citations should follow a recognised system. Harvard (school style as per Appendix C) is recommended. All those references used, i.e. cited either directly with quotation marks and page numbers or indirectly (paraphrased or summarised) in the main body of the dissertation should be listed. The list of references is compiled in alphabetical order by authors’ surnames.
 
Note: If an author is cited more than once, chronological order is used. If the author has two or more references from the same year differentiate this by year followed by a letter, i.e. 2003a, 2003b, 2003c etc. 

Appendices
The appendices include additional material or supportive information to expand on the content or to assist the understanding of the text. They should be numbered for reader to refer to or to expand on text. Material necessary for the reader to understand the text should be in the main body not in an appendix. The appendices might contain information that would be too ‘bulky’ or complicated to include in the main body of the dissertation, or detail, which might distract the reader. In the main body of the text, briefly summarise the detail and then refer the reader to the appendix for further information.

Appendices are placed after the reference list and are listed in alphabetical order (A, B, C, D, etc.).

3.3 PLANNING, RECORDING AND WRITING

Planning the work schedule

Students are advised to arrange a regular day/time to meet the supervisor and to plan a schedule for the completion of tasks with dates, interim and final deadlines.

Note: It is extremely important that:
 Comprehensive and accurate notes are kept from the outset
 A plan, with interim deadlines, is adhered to – this is a test of competence in self-management and should impress the supervisors /assessors.
 Writing begins and sections are handed to the supervisor for comment as soon as possible.
 Electronic backups are kept as well as hard copies of all the work, including the primary data collected and the computer printouts of the data analysis

All students have a maximum period (normally one to three years according to the mode of study and the nature of the course) within which they need to complete the course. Below is a draft-plan for consideration by the student who wishes to complete the Dissertation in seven months. This plan is merely indicative and should be adapted or changed subject to suit the individual’s needs.
