While there are some dedicated La Te X classes that meet these needs in complex cases, I decided to create a simple list environment to handle the routine cases. Most Oxford theses go through a round of corrections, as time-honored a tradition as the viva itself.
Minor corrections generally just involve sending a PDF of your revised thesis to your internal examiner.
If that is not possible and you must use the browser, note issues with Firefox. Please contact the administration staff if any questions arise.
As anyone who has written a thesis will tell you: Like it or not, at some point in the writing process, you will spend far too much time tweaking a minor formatting issue.
The thesis templates have been created to make it easy to prepare your thesis using La Te X 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.I was lucky enough to find a template that Sam Evans adapted for social sciences use based on the original maths template by Keith Gillow. The template includes chapter title pages with optional mini-To C, epigraph, etc.I wound up making my own modifications, and re-packaged the template for posterity. " data-medium-file="https:// data-large-file="https:// / The template includes a carefully refined table of contents.My modifications cleaned up some of the spacing, ensuring single-spaced tables and slightly more compact chapter headings. Careful attention was paid to spacing and page headings in the table of contents as well as other heading sections.This can get tricky in documents using lots of packages." data-medium-file="https:// data-large-file="https:// / Optionally format your title page more appropriately for a master’s degree submission." data-medium-file="https:// data-large-file="https:// / Fantastic chapter pages.The template retains Sam Evans’s use of the quotchap and minitoc packages to (optionally) include an epigraph and brief table of contents at the beginning of each chapter.I found this a great way to inject a bit of personality into the thesis (via the epigraph) and ensure that my reader wasn’t getting lost (table of contents).When you’re starting a new section in a La Te X document, you don’t click bold and increase the font size.Instead, you type , and the engine automatically assigns a section number and format, updates the table of contents, and even adds within-document links.
