Templates for dissertations

The mandatory stylesheet for preparing the SLU doctoral theses can be downloaded here. It is also suitable for licentiate theses that will be printed in S5 format (the format of the Acta series). The set of template files also includes templates for the notice of dissertation and the backcover, a style file for Endnote (in order to help reference management) and joboption files (used to create pdf files adjusted for SLU Repro.

The stylesheets apply to Microsoft Word. There are template files for the Word versions 2003/2004, 2007, 2010 and 2011 (not for Microsoft Word 2008, though). Download the files in a complete set or as separate files. You will find instructions for use in the files themselves and, for the thesis file, in a pdf file that you can easily print. In the FAQ for dissertations you can find more help.

If possible, use the thesis template from the very start and type the text directly into it. If you need to paste in text you can use the Paste Special... command and choose the alternative Unfomatted Text to avoid problems with the formatting.

If you have questions or views on the stylesheet please contact Ulla Ekström at the Alnarp Library.
