What Is the Difference Between a Thesis and a Dissertation?

Learn some tips on how to write the best thesis or dissertation.

So you are beginning your graduate program, reading over all the material and trying to prepare yourself as best as possible for the next two to three years. You’re already looking forward to graduation and figuring out exactly what will be required in order to receive your degree on time. What you’ve probably discovered is that whether you are pursuing a masters degree or a doctoral degree, the main goal in graduate school is to complete original research or projects, depending on your degree program.

The words “thesis” and “dissertation” are often used interchangeably, leading to some confusion in academia about what each individual word actually means. The main similarity between the dissertation and the thesis is the structure. Both have an introduction, literary review, main body, conclusion, bibliography and appendix. But that is the extent in which they are similar.

Differences Between a Masters Thesis and Doctoral Dissertation

Generally in the US, a thesis is the final project for the masters degree and a dissertation leads to a doctoral degree. Those pursuing a masters degree must perform research on a specific subject that demonstrates their knowledge acquired through their program. Seeking a PhD is different in that your dissertation must contribute something completely new and undiscovered to your field. In other words, you have to contribute original knowledge to the subject. So the main difference between a thesis and a dissertation is the depth of knowledge you must attain in order to write the paper.

A masters degree thesis is more closely related to a research paper that you would have completed during college. You are expected only to use the research of others and provide your own analysis on your discoveries. It demonstrates your level of critical and analytical thinking and defines the subject that you are most interested in pursuing within your field. With a dissertation, you are expected to use the research of others only to guide you in your own research to come up with a completely new hypothesis.

Another way in which the thesis and dissertation differ are in length. A masters degree thesis is typically over 100 pages. However, the dissertation is usually at least double and sometimes triple the length of a thesis. To determine the length of your thesis or dissertation, remember you should always first consult your grad school.

Tips For Writing a Thesis or Dissertation

The first step in writing your thesis or dissertation (or any other academic paper) is setting a deadline. You don’t want your deadline to be the due date of the paper because you need to leave enough time to get it proofread and to make any additional changes. You should keep a journal of your ideas to help with the writing process. The next step is to create a detailed outline of your paper.

When beginning to write your thesis or dissertation, keep in mind that you are writing an academic paper. Not many people besides your professors and academic advisors will read your thesis, so make sure to keep your writing style formal.

Consult a scholarly text to see how your thesis or dissertation should be structured. Once you have written and edited your thesis or dissertation, you should find an editor. Some editors will only check spelling and grammar issues, while others will check for overall continuity and flow. Determine what you need before searching for an editor.

#IJSRD Journal Update : How Facebook is Trying to be the Next Google


After Facebook changed their news-feed algorithm to reduce organic reach to to 2% or 1%, the first thing that came to mind was Google.

Remember when marketers preached SEO all day long, and how your Website should be on the first page of Google search results?

Here’s why I never really paid attention to those so-called SEO gurus.

Google changes its search algorithm around 500–600 times each year, so if your Website does make it to the top of Mount Everest one day, there’s a good chance it will come down the next.

So why does Google change their algorithmic pagerank so often?

One reason is to prevent spammy SEO tricks by sneaky scumbags.

Another reason is Google Adwords!

In other words, advertising money. And lot’s of it.

We’re talking about $14.04 billion of advertising revenue, as reported in their first quarter results of 2014.

After Facebook officially announced that they expect organic reach to gradually decline, they claimed to having carried out the algorithmic changes to weed out spammy, non-engaging content.Image



But in an official document, titled “Generating business results on Facebook,” they recommended brands should consider paid content distribution in order to avoid the new organic limitation and “to maximize delivery of your message in news feed.”

How much did Facebook report in advertising revenue since the algorithmic changes?

In the first quarter of 2014, they claimed advertising revenues of $2.2 billion. Not too shabby.

But according to Social Bakers’ 2014 First Quarter Ad Report, now, 92% of social marketers report that they are using Facebook for advertising.

So there’s no telling how well they will do next quarter.

Is Facebook really following the steps of Google?

Short answer is yes. Let me prove it to you even further.

“What makes Facebook remind me of Google the most is the $22 billion spent on acquisitions in the last 6 years.”

Just how much did Google spend on acquisitions in the same time period? Also $22 billion!

Did a light bulb just pop up? I hope so.

I’ll let the below infographics do the rest of the talking.







Samsung’s new 1TB SSD is based on latest 3D technology #IJSRD Update…


Samsung has raised the stakes in flash storage with a new 1TB solid-state drive based on its newest memory technology.

The SSD is targeted at high-end PCs, and the drive is based on Samsung’s second generation V-NAND technology, in which storage chips are stacked vertically. Samsung also announced 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacity SSDs.

The 1TB drive could ratchet up SSD storage in laptops, which have so far largely topped off at 512GB. The new SSDs have two times the durability in writing data and are 20 percent more power efficient than conventional NAND-based SSDs in which storage modules are placed side by side, Samsung said in a statement.

Prices for the SSDs were not immediately available.

Samsung has improved on its original V-NAND technology, stacking 32 NAND storage layers in one chip package. The first-generation of V-NAND, announced in August last year, stacked 24 storage layers. The layers transfer data through a proprietary interconnect.

Chip stacking is already found in memory chips and system-on-a-chip devices. Putting storage chips in a vertical structure is viewed as the new way to add storage capacity as devices get smaller and more power-efficient.

Samsung later this year plans to announce new drives that are more reliable based on the new V-NAND technology, the company said.

The most effective method to Select a Dissertation Topic #IJSRD


     Pick something that you are energetic about

  1. Pick something that you are educated in
  2. Pick a zone where a true and huge specialization-related issue exists
  3. Pick a point where there is a rich wellspring of academic examination accessible as the premise for making a  hypothetical schema/establishment for exploration
  4. Pick a point that has been mulled over long ago, yet where new experiences could be given by taking a gander at it in another way (i.e. don’t be a trailblazer!)
  5. Pick a zone of research that is achievable inside the timelines assigned for your doctoral courses (i.e., don’t “heat up the sea”)
  6. Pick a zone where information will be accessible for accumulation
