The objective of a dissertation is to add to studies and research that already exists in the chosen field. When choosing a dissertation topic the author should attempt to be focused rather than wide-ranging. This is the only manner in which literature can be kept at a manageable level and a certain outcome sought. Also keeping the topic focused will help the author to work within the given cost and time constraints.
