Proposal/Dissertation Chapter Format
If there is a discrepancy in formatting between a style manual and this Guide, the regulations set forth in this Guide take precedence. Please do not use another thesis or dissertation as a model for your work since a particular style or example in a previous year may not meet current guidelines. Also, certain commonly used software packages may require format modifications in order to comply with current guidelines. It is your responsibility to ensure that your thesis or dissertation is formatted correctly before you submit it to The Graduate School.
Dissertation format encompasses two aspects of the dissertation: the formatting of the paper itself, with respect to title pages, supporting chapters, appendices, etc., and the content of the dissertation. The mechanical aspects of dissertation format, including the arrangement of the elements on the title page, the structure of the table of contents, the page numbers and running heads, and other elements, are mostly governed by the style manual that is preferred in the academic field in which the student is working. Most social sciences will require format, while humanities subjects will often require the use of MLA style. In historical research, dissertation format often follows Chicago style. The student will most likely already be aware of the preferred style in his or her field, but he or she should always check with the advisor to be certain.If you want to study and get idea of the comprehensive dissertation format including page numbering, multiple manuscripts, footnotes, line space etc, feel free to ask us a completely FREE Dissertation Sample.
