All the literature on research-based and dissertation writing indicates that you need to be encouraged to research in both rigorous and sensitive ways which are generic, and recognise, observe or cross disciplinary boundaries. The generic elements include making sure you develop a research question, develop an appropriate research design, work at a conceptual level. You also need to take note of discipline-related research processes, questions, and even the format of the written product. Start writing early and learn the conventions of your disciplines in terms of how you write, what you write, the language you use and the shape of the dissertation or other assignment (see Murray, 2002; Dunleavy, 2003).
