2 ABSTRACT (5 blank single-spaced lines from top, 2 blank lines below) Type or paste your abstract here. An abstract is required for all manuscripts, with a recommended length of about 250 words, or no more than one page, and will be published online and in Thesis Abstracts, a publication of University Microfilms International Publications. UMI prefers an abstract of this length for publication purposes and may shorten longer abstracts themselves. The abstract should include a statement of the problem, procedures, methods, results, and a conclusion the equivalent of a short statement you might use in response to the question, What is your thesis all about, anyway? The abstract should not contain footnotes or references, or include the title and your name as author of the thesis. Your abstract must fit on one page, including the blank space above. It should be 12 pt. font, and should not have any bolded titles, such as METHODS. The front matter page numbers are set at one inch at the center bottom of the page, in lower-case Roman numerals. If you add or delete some pages, the computer will repaginate the file automatically. Please see Chapter 1 for more information about formatting. Orange and blue text should be deleted from your final version. ii

7 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 2 blank lines below) This is an optional section in which you may thank friends, mentors, colleagues, supporters, and/or institutions that supported your research or provided special assistance. If your advisors or committee members offered routine help, you may omit them entirely. Observe the same formatting guidelines for this section, including margins and double-spacing. It must match the main text. vii
8 1 CHAPTER 1 (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE CHAPTER TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) All titles in your thesis should be five blank single-spaced lines from the top of the page with two blank single-spaced lines between the title and the beginning of your text. Your text should be double-spaced, with the beginning of each paragraph indented 0.5 from the left. There should be no extra space between paragraphs this is true for all chapters. If you use this downloadable template, all formatting and pagination will align correctly. This is a Primary or Level 1 Heading This is how the first page of your thesis will look, using a chapter name and Turabian-style headings. APA users may use this style in their thesis, or if the APA heading style is preferred, observe all guidelines in the APA manual. You do not need to begin each chapter with a primary heading immediately following the chapter title. Note that all other styles (Chicago, IEEE, etc.) observe this style of headings. If you are using footnotes or endnotes this template will format them properly note that the MS Word default settings are incorrect. 1 The page numbers and margins are set correctly, as well as the correct ellipsis style... and the correct dash style with no spaces between the dash and word. 1 Eric Weiss, Oedipus in Fullerton (Placentia, CA: Seattle Books, 1962), 62.
9 2 As you set up your Table of Contents (ToC), click on each word or page number in the TOC and replace it with the proper text from your thesis. The page numbers are aligned by a tab stop so that they will be correct on the right. Using Word s Split Screen feature allows for the user to see both the ToC and body text at the same time. This is a Secondary Heading or a Sub-Heading or Level 2 Heading A secondary heading is a subsection of a primary heading. All headings should be worded in the Table of Contents the same as in the text. The text starts in the line below the secondary heading one double space and is indented. APA users may use the bolded style of heading as described in the APA Manual. There is no period or other punctuation after secondary headings. If secondary headings are used, there should be at least two per primary heading section. This is a tertiary heading. This heading is a subsection of a secondary heading. Both Secondary and Tertiary subheadings relate generally to the Primary Heading, but the Tertiary Heading does not need to be included in the TOC. Refer to the Turabian Manual for Writers or the Chicago Manual of Style for further heading levels and appropriate usage. This heading uses sentence case, not headline case.
10 3 CHAPTER 2 (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE CHAPTER TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) Paste your text here. This is how the first page of your second chapter may look. Each chapter should be five single-space lines down from the top ( CHAPTER # will be on the 6th line). Superscript text is not appropriate for the document so if you include dates or iterations of methods, be sure to remove the superscript from th, nd, and rd. This is a Primary Heading Primary headings are centered and underlined and use Headline case. APA Level 1 headings are use bold instead of underline. You do not need to begin each chapter with a primary heading immediately following the chapter title. This is a Secondary Heading or a Sub-Heading APA users may use the bolded style of heading as described in the APA Manual. There is no period or other punctuation after secondary headings. If secondary headings are used, there should be at least two per primary heading section. This is a tertiary heading. This heading is a subsection of a secondary heading. Both Secondary and Tertiary subheadings relate generally to the Primary Heading, but the Tertiary Heading does not need to be included in the TOC. Refer to the Turabian Manual for Writers or the Chicago Manual of Style for further heading levels and appropriate usage. This heading uses sentence case, not headline case.
11 4 CHAPTER 3 (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE CHAPTER TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) Delete all text within this chapter and paste in your own. Table and figure placement and referencing in the text are among the most difficult of all formatting problems. Consult your appropriate style manual for guidelines, since the thesis manual is not conclusive. Nevertheless, the general guidelines that follow should assist you with less complicated graphics. Tables and Figures Insert your table or figure after you have referenced it within the text (see Table 1). Notice that the table title begins on the third single-spaced line after the text, and resumes on the third single-spaced line after the table. Such placement sets off the table from the text, creating an easy visual transition for the reader. Table 1. Repayment Schedule Amount of Loan Interest Paid Total Principal and Interest Paid $20,000 $29, $ $40,000 $58, $ $60,000 $117, $ Regardless of table style, the general requirements are the same. No italics are used with table titles. No period is used after the table title. Stub entries are always
12 5 aligned flush left, with column heads centered above their corresponding data. All decimals must align. There are also rules for notes, explanations, capitalization, and runover lines, to name but a few. All tables should be referred to in the text, numbered consecutively (with Arabic numerals [0-9]), and placed as close as possible to the original text reference. Refer to tables and figures by their number; for example, as shown in Table 2, the response time among firefighters and police were substantially different (see Table 3). By informing the reader that a table or figure will be following, often referred to as a callout, the reader knows to look for one. Be sure to include all descriptions found in the table or figure in your text. Do not use relative terms such as below or above to callout your table or figure. Placing tables and figures is hard work (see Figure 1). Figure captions use italics for the figure number. Captions include a period at the end. Figure 1. Thesis writing is hard work. If the caption for this thesis was to run onto two lines, we would want to make sure that it is single-spaced with two blank lines afterwards. Table titles are placed one space above the table, and figure captions are placed one space beneath the figure. Fonts for titles and data may be no smaller than 10-pt.
13 6 Tables and figures larger than a half a page may stand alone; otherwise, add text to fill the page. A table or figure should be able to stand alone without any text explanation or, in some case, sourcing. Thus, all pertinent information should be referenced within the text that precedes the table. Table 2 provides common errors in thesis submission, as well as showing an example of a properly-formatted large table. Note that we have chosen to push Table 2 onto the next page, rather than breaking it across pages. Generally, it is preferable to have as little blank space as possible, but we must prioritize keeping tables in one piece. For that reason, Table 2 starts on the next page.

15 8 CHAPTER 4 (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE CHAPTER TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) Copy and paste in your own text here. Use double spacing throughout this chapter, number your pages sequentially, and observe all other formatting directions from the Thesis Manual.
16 9 CHAPTER 5 (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE CHAPTER TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) Copy and paste in your own text here. Use double spacing throughout this chapter, number your pages sequentially, and observe all other formatting directions from the Thesis Manual.
17 10 CHAPTER 6 (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE CHAPTER TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) Copy and paste in your own text here. Use double spacing throughout this chapter, number your pages sequentially, and observe all other formatting directions from the Thesis Manual. If your thesis ended after Chapter 5, then delete this chapter and continue to Appendices and/or References.
18 11 APPENDIX A (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE APPENDIX TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) Start typing here, or paste in your next chapter or appendix here. Notice that the same formatting restrictions apply for margins and titles. Text within appendices can be formatted between pt. font and may be single spaced. If you have just one appendix, remove the letter A following APPENDIX. If you need assistance with landscape pages for your tables or figures, please the Thesis Reader for Word techniques, or visit the Office of Graduate Studies thesis page for a landscape page template. Appendices that contain information presented to participants in the study (for example, if you chose to include a copy of a survey given to participants) should be replicated as close as possible to what the original participants saw. Because of the limitations of trying to match two formats it does not need to be identical, but it should be as close as possible.
19 12 APPENDIX B (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 1 below) THIS IS THE APPENDIX TITLE (2 blank single-spaced lines before text) Start typing here, or paste in your next chapter or appendix here. Notice that the same formatting restrictions apply for margins and titles. Text within appendices can be formatted between pt. font and may be single spaced. If you have just one appendix, remove the letter A following APPENDIX. If you need assistance with landscape pages for your tables or figures, please the Thesis Reader for Word techniques, or visit the Office of Graduate Studies thesis page for a landscape page template. Appendices that contain information presented to participants in the study (for example, if you chose to include a copy of a survey given to participants) should be replicated as close as possible to what the original participants saw. Because of the limitations of trying to match two formats it does not need to be identical, but it should be as close as possible. Use this template for all subsequent appendices, or delete as necessary.
20 13 REFERENCES (5 blank single-spaced lines above, 2 below) Begin your references here. You may title this section as your committee chooses (Bibliography, References, Works Cited, etc.). All sources must begin flush left, and indented at.5 inches, or in the style of your discipline. Double space between entries, and single space within each one. The template is set up to automatically add space between entries. Be sure to proofread your work thoroughly, and follow your designated documentation style guide. Use the Word hanging indent feature, NOT TABS, to indent second and subsequent lines. If Google is not helpful, the Thesis Reader for Word techniques. If you have been using a citation management program (e.g., EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero), please ensure that your references are STATIC (not changing) and not a field block within the version you submit to the Thesis Reader.
