Writing

A Guide For Thesis Preparation

Students are to consult with their supervisors concerning the general organization of the thesis, and also about special practices or rules that may apply to scholarly writing within the specific discipline. The latter comment relates particularly to the use of footnotes, the method of indicating references, and the tabulation of bibliographic and reference materials. Style manuals are available in the University Library. Regulations concerning paper, print, duplication and binding, etc., are given below. The final copy of the thesis must adhere to these regulations. Failure to comply will result in delays in processing, and the student may incur additional expenses in producing a document acceptable to the corresponding Academic Unit and to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research.

Careful proofreading of the thesis for spelling and grammatical errors as well as for adherence to all other standards is the responsibility of the student and supervisor.
