Table of contents Parts of the preface Difference between preface and acknowledgements Example preface The preface is a part of the dissertation that is written only after your dissertation is completed. Acknowledgements are often a part of the preface. You thank those who have helped and supported you during the writing of your dissertation. Write a separate acknowledgements section if you need extra space to thank people. This is useful, for example, with a doctoral dissertation because the writing of such a document takes a long time and often many people are involved in the process.

It has been my responsibility and pleasure to chair the Alliance's Principles Committee that has overseen the drafting and publication of these Guidance Notes on the Co-operative Principles. The Principles are an integral part of the Alliance's Statement on the Co-operative Identity and must be understood within its context. The Co-operative identity is two dimensional. The first is that a co-operative is an association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations. The second is that these needs and aspirations are met through a jointly owned and democratically controlled enterprise. The seven Co-operative Principles are the internationally agreed foundational principles that, when applied to the day-to-day governance and management of co-operative enterprises, enables them achieve the objective of meeting their members' needs and aspirations. The Principles are not inscribed in stone, nor are they rigid rules to be followed; they are the sound ethical principles to be applied with vision and proportionately according to the national economic, cultural, social, legal and regulatory context and particularities within which each co operative enterprise operates. A co-operative is the only form of entrepreneurship organisation with such an international agreed and recognised definition, values and principles.
