The research process will take the longest amount of time. While you research, continue organizing the acquired information so it is easy to find. All your sources should have references and citations within them to avoid confusing the original source with another. Use the organized information to create a detailed outline. The outline will be your guide to writing your dissertation. All supporting information can easily be arranged in the order you wish the information to be portrayed.
