If you are writing a text that does not fall under these three categories (e.g., a narrative), a thesis statement somewhere in the first paragraph could still be helpful to your reader. Your thesis statement should be specific—it should cover only what you will discuss in your paper and should be supported with specific evidence. The thesis statement usually appears at the end of the first paragraph of a paper. Your topic may change as you write, so you may need to revise your thesis statement to reflect exactly what you have discussed in the paper.Please note that the following chapter outline acts as a general guideline.In this chapter you need to discuss the findings of your study.
In this chapter you should also outline the techniques used to analyze the data that you have collected.
Every data analysis process will be different depending on the design of the study and the type of data collected.
Describe your respondents and clearly outline the results of your data analyses.
Where appropriate use tables and charts to support your presentation of results.
Based on your topic of study, you will need to agree the specific format with your thesis supervisor.
For example, a feasibility study-based thesis may not follow the typical format outlined below: In this chapter you essentially need to outline what your thesis is about i.e., provide the background to your study, and clearly identify the gap in the literature that your study will fill.
Also, you need to clearly outline the implications of your study’s findings for hospitality managers.
Finally, identify the limitations of your study and present your recommendations for future research.
It will change in scope and length as you refine your topic and start to uncover findings.
Having a working literature review earlier rather than later will help you stay focused on your specific topic.
