A thesis is usually written as a series of separate documents. The writer seldom begins at the beginning and works solidly in sequence through to the end over the writing process. It is not surprising, then, that when the chapter documents are assembled into one, additional work is needed to ensure cohesion across the whole entity. In this chapter, we outline some techniques for contributing to cohesion in a thesis text. The first suggestion we make is that you suspend disbelief and think of your thesis as a story.
