Essay and dissertation are the two academic study tools that have been used in various contexts and forms by many educational institutions around the world. They might be named and formatted differently from country to country. Smith (2004) states that standard essay outline is relevant to dissertations with reference to organization, format and project.

Dissertations work requires in depth research in areas of independent work of students that unlike essay students create their own question for study and work with experienced advisor to find answers to overall research topics (Smith, 2004) and it has to be presented in acceptable academic standards (White, 2007). The most distinction of dissertation should be named as its requirement of originality (Smith, 2004).
