This template shows the key concepts used in the generation of a doctoral thesis of 80,000 words or more. This example uses the MLA style and therefore has no headings and no footnotes. It does have chapter headings (which are essential for a large work) and a table of contents has been included, although this could be deleted. The chapter headings do not contain a title and 9 chapters are offered on the basis that this is the minimum number of chapters necessary if dictated by the purpose of the chapter based on the formal model type hypothesis/thesis/antithesis/synthesis.
