Thesis Style

UBC has regulations and guidelines for theses. Please be aware of them.

Thesis are usually written in MS Word or LaTeX. Either is OK with me, although the type of feedback you will get is different for each. If you use MS Word, I expect to get both the MS Word source file and a PDF version of each draft. If you use LaTeX, I expect to get have access to the various LaTeX source files, including bibtex and other auxiliary files through a tool such as ShareLaTeX (my preferred mechanism for sharing LaTeX documents).

If you use Latex, be prepared to demonstrate that you can use bibtex to produce the following reference without mangling Strunk's name.

Strunk, W., Jr., & White, E. B. (1979). The elements of style (3rd ed.). New York, NY: Macmillan.


This is not an exhaustive list, but it covers some of the issues that in my experience occur frequently when students are writing theses or dissertations.
