A college dissertation would be considered a scholarly work, but a dissertation is different from an article in ways that may be important to you. A dissertation is usually the length of a book, perhaps 100 pages or more. A key part of your dissertation or thesis is the methodology. This is not quite the same as 'methods'. The methodology describes the broad philosophical underpinning to your chosen custom essay writing service research methods, including whether you are using qualitative or quantitative methods, or a mixture of both, and why. Scholarly articles are usually much shorter than that. The dissertation defense is a significant milestone signaling closure on your graduate student career.
