The TOC can be automatically generated if you use the pre-formatted font styles created in Setting Up Your Document.
As you type your document, remember to use each of those font styles as appropriately required.
Tables and figures referred to in the text may not be placed at the end of the chapter or at the end of the dissertation.
Figure and table numbering must be continuous throughout the dissertation or by chapter (e.g., 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, etc.).
Captions should appear at the bottom of any figures.
If the figure takes up the entire page, the caption should be placed alone on the preceding page, centered vertically and horizontally within the margins. When a figure or table title is on a preceding page, the second and subsequent pages of the figure or table should say, for example, “Figure 5 (Continued).” In such an instance, the list of figures or tables will list the page number containing the title.
If you are unsure whether your chosen font will display correctly, use one of the following fonts: If fonts are not embedded, non-English characters may not appear as intended. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that fonts are embedded properly prior to submission.
Microsoft Word 2008 on a Mac OS X computer will automatically embed your fonts while converting your document to a PDF file.
In addition to the student's own writing, dissertations often contain third-party content, or in-copyright content owned by parties other than you, the student who authored the dissertation.
The Office for Scholarly Communication recommends consulting the information below about fair use, which allows individuals to use in-copyright content, on a limited basis and for specific purposes, without seeking permission from copyright holders.
