disseration template

The Neumann Library provides Microsoft Word templates to help you compose your dissertation in the format required by the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Templates define the correct pagination, margins, font size and style, and other formatting settings according to the guidelines specified in the guide.
Why use a template? Templates automate much of the dissertation formatting, saving you time. They make use of Styles, which are on the Home ribbon in Microsoft Word. A Style is a command used to format your text with predefined settings, including font size, spacing, indentation, and so on. If you highlight some text and click a style button, it will format that text according to the style. The Table of Contents will pull from these styles to automatically update the headings and page numbers.

The Dissertation Template includes:
The Dissertation Template is a comprehensive, 24-page outline that you can use for your dissertation. Whether your university has a template or you’ve begun the dissertation without one, this guide will be helpful to you as it includes a detailed descriptions of chapters 1-5 and subsections that help you, the doctoral student, flesh-out each chapter. The template is written to comply with most university requirements.

The thesis templates are highly customizable, and there are many options and macros available for your use. Most of these are documented in the comments in each file, especially main.tex. You are encouraged to read through the comments.
The thesis templates have been created to make it easy to prepare your thesis using LaTeX while adhering to the MIT Thesis Specifications. We make every effort to keep these up to date, but you should always consult the MIT Libraries Thesis Specifications before submitting your thesis. If you notice something in the Thesis Specifications that does not match the templates, please let us know by e-mailing us at thesis AT mit DOT edu.
